Suffolk Design Guide for Residential Areas

Advising house builders about the design of residential areas in Suffolk including choice of materials, individual dwellings and roads.

The Suffolk Design Guide for Residential Areas is used as supplementary planning guidance by all local authorities in Suffolk; and was revised in 2000 in accordance to changes in planning policy guidance.

This guide must be read together with the estate road specification and parking for new developments guidance.

Please note that some aspects regarding highway design are now outdated and we recommend that any developer should seek guidance from the Development Management Team at the earliest opportunity.
