  2. 2. Policy D1 Policy D2 Policy D3 Policy D4 Policy D5 Policy D6 Policy D7 Policy D8 Policy D9 Policy D10 Policy D11 Policy D12 Policy D13 Policy D14 London’s form, character and capacity for growth Infrastructure requirements for sustainable densities Optimising site capacity through the design-led approach Delivering good design Inclusive design Housing quality and standards Accessible housing Public realm Tall buildings Basement development Safety, security and resilience to emergency Fire safety Agent of Change Noise Chapter 3
  3. 3. 'Design’ x 374 'Design’ x 592
  4. 4. 1. Rigorous process of consultation and Examination in Public 2. Concrete plans for action and tangible policies 3. A policy framework for delivering Good Growth Highlights Chapter 3 Design
  5. 5. Policy D1 Policy D2 Policy D3 Policy D4 Policy D5 Policy D6 Policy D7 Policy D8 Policy D9 Policy D10 Policy D11 Policy D12 Policy D13 Policy D14 London’s form, character and capacity for growth Infrastructure requirements for sustainable densities Optimising site capacity through the design-led approach Delivering good design Inclusive design Housing quality and standards Accessible housing Public realm Tall buildings Basement development Safety, security and resilience to emergency Fire safety Agent of Change Noise Chapter 3
  6. 6. “Boroughs should undertake area assessments to define the characteristics, qualities and value of different places within the plan area to develop an understanding of different areas’ capacity for growth.” D1 London’s form, character and capacity for growth 1) demographic make-up and socio-economic data 2) housing types and tenure 3) urban form and structure 4) existing and planned transport networks 5) air quality and noise levels 6) open space networks, green infrastructure, and water bodies 7) historical evolution and heritage assets 8) topography and hydrology 9) land availability 10) existing and emerging Development Plan designations 11) land uses 12) views and landmarks
  7. 7. D3 Optimising site capacity through the design-led approach 3.3.2 “A design-led approach to optimising site capacity...” (vs. residential density matrix) 3.3.21 “Comparing density between schemes using a single measure can be misleading...” Residential density: 1) number of units per hectare 2) number of habitable rooms per hectare 3) number of bedrooms per hectare 4) number of bedspaces per hectare. Height and scale: 1) the Floor Area Ratio 2) the Site Coverage Ratio 3) the maximum height in metres above ground level
  8. 8. D4 Delivering good design • Focus on design process (methodology, documentation, scrutiny, review) • Eludes definition of good design (unlike D8 Public realm) • Acknowledges post-planning pitfalls (Detail design, NMAs, D&B novation...)
  9. 9. D9 Delivering good design 3.9.2 “Boroughs should determine and identify locations where tall buildings may be an appropriate...” • Tall buildings only in sites identified in Development Plans (prescriptive vs. context-led intensification) • Focus on visual, functional and environmental impact. • Lack of specific design guidelines. 3.9.6 “A tall building can be considered to be made up of three main parts: a top, middle and base.”
