Design guide

The New Forest National Park Design Guide Supplementary Planning Document (SPD) is a key part of our planning guidance for the National Park.

As an SPD, it conforms with, and supplements many of the policies set out in our adopted local planning policies. It is a material consideration in determining planning applications and applies throughout the whole of the National Park.

The Design Guide aims to achieve high standards of design in new development while retaining and enhancing the distinctive character of the natural and built environment.

It supports the pre-application process by providing guidance to help applicants, agents and others to respond to the features and rural characteristics that make the New Forest special when designing their proposals.

As required by the relevant planning regulations, this is accompanied by an adoption statement and consultation statement.
