A new supplementary planning document has been adopted to complement policies in the Derbyshire Dales Local Plan.
The Shopfronts and Commercial Properties Supplementary Planning Document (SPD) provides detailed guidance for anyone planning to alter or replace a shop frontage in the Derbyshire Dales.
Adopted by Derbyshire Dales District Council following a six-week public consultation, the SPD also raises awareness of the design issues related to shopfronts and commercial properties, providing an important reference point for developers on design standards. This ensures future development protects or enhances the character and local distinctiveness of the area.
The document contains advice on design, materials, colours, advertisements, illuminations and security. It can be viewed on the District Council's website here.
