Poundbury Design Code & Covenant
The Design and Community Code provides guidance to Poundbury residents and businesses as to the original design approach and long term architectural principles. The purpose is to:
- Explain the principles underlying the development
- Give confidence to owners and occupiers that high standards will be maintained for the benefit of all
- Steer the way in which maintenance is undertaken
- Encourage any proposed extensions or alterations to complement the existing fabric
All parties are committed to comply with the Code, with further advice and clarification being provided by the Regulator (the Duchy of Cornwall, or in some instances the MANCO). The document is updated to reflect evolving issues (such as emerging environmental technology) and to provide additional clarity where required.
