Re: Commonhead Phase 1 Design Codes - Discharge of condition 5 from Outline Planning Permission S/10/0842

I write to notify you that the Commonhead Phase 1 Design Code has been submitted by Barton Wilmore on behalf of the developers Persimmon and Redrow. This submission is in accordance with Condition 5 of the Outline Planning Permission for Commonhead. The remaining residential areas, hospital expansion site and business park will be separately design coded and submitted for consideration at a later date.

Condition 5 of the Outline Planning Permission (ref: S/10/0842) for Commonhead, requires the formal submission and approval of Design Codes to develop and interpret the approved Land Use Master Plan before more detailed applications may be considered.

The submitted Design Code is also available to view at Wat Tyler West Reception, Beckhampton Street, Swindon, SN1 2JH and The Village Inn, Liddington I also direct you to view the submitted Design Code online by clicking on the following link:
