One of Britain’s most outstanding landscapes is the subject of two documents aimed at bringing about consistent and high quality land use planning decisions and improved building design.
The AONB Partnership, with and on behalf of our five local authorities, has produced two documents to help homeowners, developers and planners bring forward development which meets community need and conserve and enhance the AONB landscape at the same time.
The documents are:
North Pennines AONB Planning Guidelines, 2011
North Pennines AONB Building Design Guide, 2011
Local Development Frameworks
These documents are intended to help implement the planning, design and conservation policies relating to the AONB that are contained within the Local Development Frameworks (LDF) of local authorities. They seek to help generate increased consistency of approach towards matters of building design and building conservation across the AONB, so that planning policies and development control decisions continue to conserve its natural beauty while delivering essential development, including helping homeowners carry out important work to their individual properties.
The main objectives of the two documents, taken together, are:
to help those undertaking building developments or maintenance works, of any scale, to conserve and enhance the natural beauty of the North Pennines
- to help promote new development that conserves and enhances the natural beauty of the North Pennines while accommodating the needs of its communities
- to stimulate the highest standards of design, conservation and development;
- to support the production and implementation of local planning policy
- to secure a consistency of approach towards planning matters across the AONB.
