The following email has been received from Spelthorne Council and we are pleased to reproduce it here:


Dear Residents Associations,

The Spelthorne Design Code project officially launched today!

How to get involved

Work on the Design Code Project will be kicking off with Walking Tours and Digital Tours of the Borough, running from the 20 June 2024 to 18 July 2024. For more information on the project and to sign up for a tour, visit the Spelthorne Design Code Hub

Spelthorne Launches Design Code Hub

  • Have you wondered about how and why the buildings, streets, parks, and gardens you see around you were designed and built?
  • Do you ask yourself why homes, offices and shopping centres look the way they do?
  • Have you got a favourite building?
  • Do you want to find out more about architecture, urban design, and town planning?
  • And do you want to help shape the future of the place where you live?


What is a Design Code?

A design code is a manual or handbook that contains drawings, plans and a set of rules that will influence the how all new buildings, streets, parks, gardens, and public spaces across the borough should be designed and built, or how existing buildings should be modified.

Spelthorne Borough Council has recently committed to prepare a design code for the whole borough, and it wants local people – the people that know and love the area best – to help it write this code.  We want to put local people at the heart of the process. Over the next few months, the project team will be meeting with diverse groups across the area to find out what they think of Spelthorne today and what it could be like in the future.
