Dunton Hills Garden Village SPD

The Dunton Hills Garden Village SPD was adopted at Policy, Resources & Economic Development Committee on 8 February 2023.

The SPD sets out broad principles to show how the Garden Village should be designed, translating the policy requirements in the Brentwood Local Plan into a well designed and successful place. It provides detailed guidance which interprets the Local Plan policies in a manner appropriate to the Garden Village.

Planning applications at Dunton Hills will be reviewed alongside the policies of the Brentwood Local Plan and the guidance set out in this SPD. The guidance in this SPD forms a material consideration when determining future applications.
