A Shopfront and Advertisement Design Supplementary Planning Document (SPD) is being prepared by Burnley Council as part of its planning policy framework.
The SPD will form part of the Council’s ongoing efforts to increase the vitality and viability of the Borough’s town centres. It has been prepared to provide clear guidance on how to achieve high standards of design in relation to shopfront and advertisements as required by Burnley’s Local Plan. Once adopted, it will become a material consideration to be used in the determination of relevant applications for planning permission and listed building consent. It will also be relevant to the consideration of applications for advertisement consent. Although applying principally to the town centres of Burnley and Padiham, there are a small number of shops in the Borough’s villages and in District Centres and the guidance will also be applicable here.
Consultation - Now Closed
The Council invited representations on a draft version of the SPD over a 6-week period from Friday 1st February 2019 to Friday 15th March 2019.
The SPD can be viewed through the 'Downloads' section on the right hand side of this page
Paper copies are also available to view at the Council’s Contact Burnley office and Burnley and Padiham Libraries during their opening hours.
Thankyou to all those who made comments. All the comments received will be carefully considered in preparing the final version of the SPD which will be presented to the Council’s Executive for adoption in Late Spring 2019.
