  • Building for Life takes principles from the existing policies for good design and breaks them down into a catalogue of 20 Criteria, also referred to as the Building for Life Standard. The Criteria fall into four Headings: Character, Roads, Parking, and Pedestrianisation Design and Construction Environment and Community You may also be aware of the Design and Access Statement that you need to submit with planning applications since May of last year. CABE has produced some guidance on how to write these, which is available on our website. This guidance sets out seven headings. You may now be thinking: “ 20 criteria – 7 headings” isn’t this all rather confusing? But the good news is that the 20 criteria cover the same ground as the 7 headings, so you can use BfL to structure your Design and Access statements, but you can also use the Design and Access statement to get an idea of how a design is going to perform against BfL. I will now run through the criteria briefly,
