Cheshire East Council has prepared a residential design guide. Whilst it is geared principally toward larger scale housing proposals, the guidance is also relevant to smaller scale development.
The guide is in 2 parts:
The first sets out the characteristics that make Cheshire East the unique place that is and it also explains how developers and designers should go about designing new development in an appropriate way.
The second volume provides guidance on specific aspects of residential design that it is important to get right in order to make new development attractive, positive for the place and fit for purpose. These topic areas are supplemented by case studies and checklists to assist all those involved in the design and consideration of new development.
