PPS 7: Quality Residential Environments
Development Plans: Concept Master Plans as Supplementary Planning Guidance
Development plans may on occasion include Concept Master Plans for major development sites as supplementary planning guidance to illustrate how the comprehensive development of such areas might be carried out. These plans will not, however, be prescriptive; rather they will seek to assist developers in responding to the requirement for quality design by indicating how such development could be achieved. Where developers wish to pursue alternative proposals, the Department will expect them to bring forward a Concept Master Plan of an equal, or higher, quality.
