This guidance highlights good practice in the production of Design and Access Statements (DAS) in Wales.
The aim of the guidance is to:
- outline the benefits of undertaking a DAS,
- provide advice on what should and should not be included in a DAS,
- suggests a structure for the document; and
- highlights the issues it should address.
It also contains advice for local planning authority officers, when receiving a DAS to assess, on the questions to ask to ascertain if a robust design process has been undertaken and whether design quality is evident.
