11.1 The Plan seeks to ensure that new development creates well-designed and distinctive places, that enhance local character and create places that residents can be proud of.  The approach aims to ensure that development has a high standard of design with a comprehensive design framework that sets out the council’s expectations around design at three levels: over-arching principles; site layout and design; and building level.  Policies aim to ensure that homes are built to a high standard,  are liveable for all,  and meet minimum space standards.  It is also recognised that the historic environment contributes to the borough’s distinct character, and the Plan will  protect and enhance the borough’s historic culture and identity.
