Datchet Design Guide
To support Datchet’s Neighbourhood Plan, the Borough Council (RBWM) has secured a grant from the Government’s Design Quality Fund for the development of a Datchet Design Guide. RBWM is currently writing a borough-wide design guide but this one will be a Supplementary Planning Document specific to Datchet. The scope of Datchet’s Design Guide has yet to be determined but it represents an opportunity to achieve high-quality design in all new development throughout the village and will give us all an opportunity to have a say in how the village will look in future. The Datchet Neighbourhood Plan team will be able to share with specialist urban planners the evidence it has collected and explore how good design criteria might resolve some of the issues you’ve highlighted. Once completed, the proposed Design Guide will go out to consulation so everyone can comment on it, and there will be a vote to decide whether or not to accept it at RBWM council.
