Housing Design Supplementary Planning Guidance
Date: 2018 - 2019
Mæ have been commissioned by the Mayor of London to write the Housing Design Supplementary Planning Guidance to the new London Plan.
This document is a toolkit; providing guidance on the key policies and standards in the London Plan that relate to housing, whilst advocating and facilitating a design-led approach to capacity assessment.
The SPG, which will be published in spring 2019, marks a shift in the culture of delivering housing. We are directing the narrative away from one about numbers and densities and towards one about lived experience, the circular economy and raising the baseline of development quality. This aspirational document will offer clear guidance and certainty as part of a framework for Good Growth; whereby London's available sites can be optimised rather than maximised.
