Town code

Realising the vision detail by detail

The Town Code is an essential part of the implementation of Sherford. It is the operating system that will guide and direct the actions of all who contribute to the building of Sherford as both a complex and coherent place.

It transforms the design vision into a series of rules and instructions, specific where necessary and open to interpretation where appropriate, to inform the layout of spaces and the physical fabric for any phase or development parcel. This agreed set of rules, illustrations and guidelines increases the certainty that the vision for the community will be realised, with benefits for all concerned.

Detailed Design Codes will be prepared for each area of the development for submission to the Sherford Review Panel. These will then guide the Reserved Matter applications for submission to the local planning authorities.
