Respondent: South Cambridgeshire District Council

Representation Summary:

Policy HIM01 High Quality Design - Residential Development

a)Supports aim of policy to embed guidance in Histon & Impington Village Design Guide SPD.

b)Helpful if policy applied to other new buildings that could have potential for significantly greater impact than a dwelling.

c)May have helped reader of Plan if more about Village Design Guide in supporting text.

d)Why some of policies relating to parking and layout not also applicable to 2-10 units? More generic for all, than size specific?

e)Some terms need explanation. e.g. 'Building for Life assessment'; 'active façade'. What is meant by designing in safe outdoor play in playgrounds?

f)Bullet point 2 refers to 'poor quality or little architectural interest'. Ambiguous and open to interpretation.

g)For ease of use more helpful if policy wording was ordered in development size.
