Congleton Princess Street Area Development Brief Supplementary Planning Document
The purpose of the Princess Street Area Development Brief is to encourage developer interest and regeneration of this key site and guide developers in submitting suitable redevelopment proposals based on the allocation of the site for General Retail Development in the adopted Congleton Borough Local Plan.
This Brief commences with an ambitious vision for the area that sets its redevelopment in the context of a once in a generation opportunity to revitalise the whole town centre. Subsequent sections detail the context of the site and wider characteristics as well as the relevant planning policy framework. Site opportunities and constraints are identified together with the planning requirements for development proposals. The final section sets out the regeneration and urban design requirements for any proposed development.
The Development Brief was produced in accordance with DP8 of the Congleton Borough Local Plan, which advises for the Princess Street site that ‘Supplementary planning guidance (documents) in the form of a development brief is required to be prepared and approved by the borough council’.
