A Borough wide Character Study has been produced by The Landscape Partnership. The findings of the Character Study contribute to the Local Development Framework, helping to develop policies and proposals for the emerging Core Strategy.
The key study objective is to identify, analyse and describe in a systematic and objective way the form and character of each main settlement as a whole, and each distinct sub-area within it. This analysis will be described using maps, photos, text and other visual aids to:
provide a legible analysis of the street and space environment
note the mix of uses and activities
analyse the residential density ranges across the urban area
analyse residential form, character and layout, including representative plot characteristics
areas of potential/future change.
The Character Study was completed in October 2010 and can be viewed on the link.
