Draft Placemaking Guidance for the Gower AONB (June 2021 Consultation Draft)

The draft SPG provides guidance on how the relevant policies of the LDP should be applied to planning applications to assist in the determination of planning applications within and in close proximity to the AONB.

The original Gower AONB Design Guide 2011 was adopted as SPG to the previous development plan in 2011.  It has proved a successful document in shaping development across the AONB, however it is necessary to update and amend the SPG to align the Guidance to the latest policy and circumstances that now apply.

An initial version of the revised SPG was subject to consultation in Autumn 2020 (previously titled 'First Consultation Draft - Revised AONB Design Guide Consultation Draft') and a consultation report is available to download below.  A further revised version of the new Guidance has now been produced to take account of the comments received during the previous consultation in 2020, and the further significant changes to the legislative and strategic planning context, including publication of the National Development Framework 'Future Wales' (2021).  The title of the document has been amended to 'Placemaking Guidance for the Gower AONB' in order to align with national and local policy, and reflect the wider concept of placemaking in the planning, design, development and management of places.  

This revised version of the Guidance takes account of all the comments received during the previous consultation in 2020, and has been fully updated to accord with recent legislative and strategic planning context changes such as the new Planning Policy Wales (Edition 11, 2021) and publication of the National Development Framework 'Future Wales' (2021).

Please download the amended document below and let us know if you have any further comments.  A response form has been provided below which can be returned to  Alternatively please contact the LDP team who can advise on provision of alternative access or formats.

Please note that the consultation will run until midnight on Sunday 5 September 2021 after which the responses will be reviewed, amendments made to the guidance where appropriate and then reported to Swansea Council Planning Committee for adoption as Supplementary Planning Guidance.
