Design and Access Statements

Design and Access Statements are required for applications for major development listed building consent or for developments in a designated area which consists of one or more dwellings; or building/buildings of 100sqm or more 

Please note you may wish to submit a Design and Access Statement along with a Household application to offer some clarity to the case however, this is not a requirement.

The council has prepared a guidance note to assist applicants of larger scale developments in preparing Design and Access Statements. A copy of this guidance note can be viewed and downloaded using the links below:
