Character and Design Study: Engagement Workshop 2 - Design Codes

Closed 12 May 2021

Opened 28 Apr 2021


LBH Spatial Planning team are preparing an update to our 2014 Urban Context and Character, which includes proposing Design Codes for the borough in line with London and National policies. This updated study will play a crucial role in shaping future development to ensure that it is of high quality design and responds positively to our borough’s character. More information on the Character and Design Codes SPD can be found at our Emerging Borough Character and Design Study SPD.

Following the Character Area workshop that was held in March, we are holding a further engagement workshop on options for Design Codes. 

You are warmly invited to join us at our stakeholder workshop on: 

12th May 2021 from 6pm to 7:30pm. 

The purpose of the workshop is for you to feedback on proposed area design codes and give your thoughts on any additional design codes that could be included in an SPD. We have put together an informative video to explain what design codes are, what they aim to do and how you can get involved. 

The format of the workshop will begin with a short presentation explaining what design codes are and their purpose. We will then break out and spend more time in area based discussion groups to look at the proposed design codes for each of the areas. There will then be an extended period of discussion time to give feedback on the proposed options, propose alternative codes and come up with new codes that shape the future of your neighbourhoods. The draft design code document will be issued in advance of the workshop. 

The area based discussion groups will be split into the following:

Bedfont, Feltham, Hanworth

Central Hounslow

Hounslow West, Heston and Cranford

Isleworth and Osterley



Places will be limited, as each group is capped at 15 people to ensure that discussion can take place and everyone can give their feedback. If there is more interest we will consider how to address this.

Please email  by Thursday 6th May if you plan to attend, stating which area based group you would like to be involved in.

 A zoom link will be issued closer to the workshop date for those who register.

What happens next

Thank you for your interest, this meeting has now happened. Further workshops will be publicised in due course.
