Northallerton Design Guide: Consultation

Northallerton Design Guide: Consultation

Northallerton Business Improvement District (BID), supported by Hambleton District Council, is leading on the development of a design guide for Northallerton.

What is a design guide?

The design guide for Northallerton will allow Hambleton District Council to promote and ensure good quality design in all new development in Northallerton town centre.

The guide will also identify Northallerton’s unique character and encourage locally distinctive design.

It is hoped that it will also inspire all those involved in the development process.

How will be used?

Once adopted as a supplementary planning document (SPD) this useful guidance will be used to promote and encourage good design in Northallerton town centre and will inform Hambleton District Council’s Planning Officers during the decision making process.


The consultation closed on Friday 28 June 2019. We received 166 paper and online consultation responses as well as a variety of social media comments. All responses and comments will be taken into account and used to inform the next stage in the process. A second consultation detailing the final draft design guide will be announced in autumn 2019.
