Developing the Design Guide

A Draft Stamford Hill Design Guide Supplementary Planning Document (SPD) is being prepared alongside the Area Action Plan. It will balance providing flexibility to homeowners to extend and meet needs for larger homes with providing a design led approach that responds positively to the housing types in Stamford Hill. The Design Guide will contain clear and detailed criteria for household extensions and will explain and illustrate what types of extensions will be acceptable in different parts of Stamford Hill.

Our planning officers will use the Design Guide to consider applications for extensions and help ensure they respond appropriately to the architectural character of the area.
