Cherwell District Guide

Alan Baxter worked with Cherwell’s Development Management and Design Officers to prepare a District Design Guide SPD to help deliver new developments of high quality design in a successful and efficient way.

The unprecedented scale of growth planned in Cherwell over the coming decades presents a huge opportunity to raise standards. Each chapter of the Design Guide deals with a different part of the design process, from site analysis and masterplanning to architectural details and materials. The document is highly visual with a mixture of plans, sketches, cartoons and photographs to illustrate the principles and details within the text, and has been warmly received by District Councillors.
