Districtwide design guide SPD

We are producing a Districtwide Design Guide which is a document illustrating the Council’s aspirations for maintaining and improving the design quality across the Somerset West and Taunton area.

Following further public consultation on the draft revised document which took place from Monday 05 July to Monday 16 August 2021, officers are currently reviewing all comments received and considering proposed changes to the draft documents in light of these responses.

The intention is for the final version of the draft Districtwide Design Guide (taking account of comments received in the consultation) to be considered by Executive Committee and then Full Council for adoption as a Supplementary Planning Document and a material planning consideration. Depending on the numbers and detail of consultation responses, the earliest that the Statement might come back to Executive would be December 2021.
