FPCR are pleased that the Design Guide that we have produced for Cannock Chase AONB has been recently published. The Design Guide can be found on the Technical Documents page of the Cannock Chase AONB website under Planning and Highways.
The Design Guide was produced to promote awareness and understanding of the AONB’s unique character and sense of place, with the aim of protecting and enhancing the area through encouraging high quality design that respects the area’s distinctive character. FPCR carried out an analysis of the AONB’s built character, the setting of buildings, the key characteristics of local settlements and their relationship with the landscapes of Cannock Chase. These in turn informed the guidance, which aims to inspire and encourage design that responds to and respects that unique character.
