Placemaking guidance for the Gower AONB

The guidance provides a practical design tool to be used by all involved in the design and development process, whether planning permission is required or not. It sets out the placemaking objectives, design principles and relevant policies of the LDP that should be followed to ensure that development respects the distinctive character of both the natural and built environment of Gower and will assist in the determination of planning applications within and in close proximity to the AONB.

The SPG was adopted by Planning Committee on 22nd October 2021 following public consultation on a draft version. A copy of the public consultation report setting out the process followed leading up to adoption of the final version of the SPG can be downloaded below.
