11. Residential Design Guide SPD

The Residential Design Supplementary Planning Document (SPD) was adopted by our Executive on 28 September 2010. The SPD provides detailed guidance in support of policies in the adopted Exeter Local Plan First Review and Proposed Submission Core Strategy Development Plan Document (DPD). The SPD is designed to provide information to all those involved in the development process. It focuses on the standard of design that we require for new residential development proposals. It is based on the premise that good quality sustainable residential design is beneficial to developers, residents and the community as a whole.

The Residential Design SPD was short listed for the Urban Design Group Public Sector Award in 2012. This short presentation summarises the SPD and how it has been implemented since 2010.
