New policy on Manor Royal building design
At Crawley Borough Council's Cabinet meeting on the 10 July the Manor Royal Design Guide Supplementary Planning Document (SPD) was formally adopted.
The Manor Royal Design Guide SPD recognises that good design is a key requirement of the National Planning Policy Framework, and sets out guidance to outline what the council considers to represent good design in Manor Royal. The SPD will be used when new developments are proposed, but also relates to extensions and alterations, to provide design guidelines around landscaping, site layout considerations and the value of improving gateway' sites.
The SPD is complemented by a Public Realm Strategy that suggests possible approaches and opportunities through which improvements to the overall environment of Manor Royal could be delivered. Some of these improvements are already being delivered by the Manor Royal BID.
