Design and Access Statement

A Design and Access Statement is a written report to support a planning application or application for listed building consent. It explains and justifies the proposal in a structured way and illustrates the process that has led to particular design choices being made. 

To submit your design and access statement please use the Design and Access Statement Form. It prompts you with questions covering the relevant issues and information you need to include.

Further advice on writing Design and Access Statements can be found at Design Council Publications.
