Raising Design Quality: The Shrewsbury Test

We want to see better quality development right across the town in the future. In particular, we want to see better place-making and the design of new housing that is much more distinctive and tailored to Shrewsbury’s special qualities.  We want to see that new development reflects our ambition as set out in the Big Town Plan.

A Shrewsbury Design Charter will clearly set out our intention to welcome a two-way dialogue between the Town and the development industry and give guidance and our expectations on design quality. This will include what we will call “The Shrewsbury Test”, a simple set of entry requirements for developing in the town.
