Supplementary Planning Documents

        Planning Obligations and Developer Contributions

        Kent Design Guide

        The Kent Design Guide (KCC)  was adopted as a Supplementary Planning Document by Thanet District Council on 14th December 2006 and forms part of the Development Plan for Thanet.

        Kent Design has been produced by the Kent Design Initiative – a partnership consisting of:

        • Kent’s local authorities
        • professional organisations
        • academic bodies
        • developers
        • builders
        • communities
        • interest groups.

        The Guide provides the criteria necessary for assessing planning applications. It will help building designers, engineers, planners and developers achieve high standards of design and construction; and it will provide planning committee members and officers with the tools to refuse consent for poor design.

        The planning guidance leaflets comprise the following documents:

        Shopfront security shutters (539kb .PDF) – added April 2002
