Design Code

The Design Code is a mechanism that informs and guides design quality, provides greater certainty in the planning process and helps to streamline development control. To ensure consistently high standards of development, house builders must adhere to an agreed Design Code, as well as to the principles set out in the Barton Park planning conditions, S106 agreement and Design & Access Statement which accompany the outline permission. These principles include a requirement for 20% on-site renewable energy generation (regulated and unregulated) and compliance with a minimum of Code Level 4 of the Code for Sustainable Homes.
