The Stroud Industrial Heritage Design Guide (SPA)
The IHCA Design Guide was adopted as Supplementary Planning Advice (SPA) in November 2008, along with three other volumes that make up the complete IHCA Conservation Area Statement.
The Design Guide acts as a practical supplement to the policy and design guidance contained in the IHCA Management Proposals SPD and adds detail to the interpretation and application of Local Plan policies, particularly Policy ES10.
It is based on the character analysis that is contained in Volumes 1 and 2 of the conservation area statement and focuses on ways to conserve or enhance local distinctiveness and special character through the design of new development - from small home extensions to major development schemes.
