Between May – August 2020 we undertook extensive consultation to understand how you wanted the new village to look and feel. The information you provided has informed the preparation of the draft Supplementary Planning Document is summaries in the co-design summary report here.
We have now drafted the Supplementary Planning Document and we will be consulting on the document later this year. We will be working with the community through our Youth Forum, Community Forum and via online channels to make sure we have got it right.
There are complex challenges in planning a new garden community, which are too great to be tackled by a single discipline or stakeholder. It’s more than just inviting designers or engineers into the process and is about involving end users, customers, patients and other community stakeholders, to confront the big issues and co-create a solution or outcome for DHGV. The co-design approach enables a wide range of people to make a creative contribution in the formulation and outcome of Dunton Hills Garden Village.
