Frequently asked questions​

Design and Access Statements (DAS) are documents typically required in urban planning and architectural processes. These statements provide a comprehensive explanation of the design rationale behind a proposed development or project, as well as how it ensures accessibility for all users. DAS serve as a crucial tool for local planning authorities and stakeholders to understand the design principles, objectives, and considerations that underpin a development, and how it adheres to relevant planning policies. These statements help evaluate the impact of a project on its surroundings and facilitate informed decision-making in the planning and development approval process.
