Consultation on Revised Gower AONB Design Guide (Consultation Draft) Supplementary Planning Guidance

The Council would like your views on the Revised Gower AONB Design Guide (Consultation Draft) document

The document provides supplementary planning guidance (SPG) in support of planning policies contained in the Swansea Local Development Plan (LDP). Its purpose is to provide guidance as to how relevant policies of the LDP should be applied in order to assist in the determination of planning applications within the AONB. 

The first Design Guide was adopted as SPG to the now superseeded City and County of Swansea UDP (2008).  The revised Guide takes account of the most recent changes to the legislative and strategic planning context that have arisen at both national and local level.  This includes the latest Gower Management Plan (2017) and amended versions of Planning Policy Wales and supporting Technical Advice Notes produced by the Welsh Government.

The Council would like your views on whether the draft SPG document covers an appropriate range of planning issues and if you consider it provides sufficient clarity for applicants and decision makers on the important principles governing development in Gower.

Please read the SPG document then answer the online questionnaire at the following link:
