Ringwood Local Distinctiveness

Following public consultation in spring 2013, the Council adopted the Ringwood Local Distinctiveness Supplementary Planning Document at its Cabinet Meeting on 3 July 2013. This planning guidance document is aimed at ensuring new development in Ringwood is well designed and respects local character and distinctiveness.

The production of a series of Local Distinctiveness Supplementary Planning Documents (SPD) is included in the Local Development Scheme and will form part of the Local Development Framework for New Forest District (outside the National Park). The purpose of these SPDs is to provide additional guidance on the implementation of policies within the adopted Core Strategy, and in particular Policies CS2 (Design quality) and Policy CS3 (Protecting and enhancing our special environment).
