Design Code

  • Design Standard - Ensuring Quality

  • Energy Standard - EPC A Rating

  • Performance Standard - Being Responsible

  • Ecology Standard - Improving wildlife





This Design Code has been prepared to provide Cornwall Council and prospective Self Builders with the confidence that individual Reserved Matters Applications will be coherent across the site, ensure design quality and standards adhered to.  This approach will lead to a rational design aesthetic that is in keeping with the rural location,  self-build dwellings and enhance the landscape and ecological characteristics of the site.
