Bristol Road North: Development Brief and Design Principles Part 1 & 2


Sedgemoor District Council has prepared a Development Brief and Design Principles document for land to the north of Bridgwater.

The purpose of the final document is to provide a framework for the redevelopment and regeneration of the area, against which planning applications will be considered.

The document;

  • Provides guidance for the development of land in accordance with the existing policies of the Local Plan;
  • Establishes the role, function and an overall vision for the area;
  • Provides a coherent planning and design context for future development;
  • Defines the character, content and extent of the development form; and
  • Guides developers and their agents in promoting best practice in architecture, urban design, landscape and sustainability.

Part 1 of the Development Brief and Design Principles was adopted by Full Council in December 2014, and Part 2 of the document is due to be adopted by Full Council on 25th March 2015.

The combined Part 1 and Part 2 document is now available to download at the bottom of the page.
