It seeks to guide people involved in planning for and designing tall buildings so that they may be delivered in a sustainable and successful way through the development plan and development management process. The advice is for all relevant developers, designers, local authorities and other interested parties.
The advice in this document may also be of use in the preparation of neighbourhood plans. This Advice Note supersedes the ‘Guidance on Tall Buildings’ which was produced by English Heritage and CABE in 2007, and reflects our practical experience of the impact of an increased number of completed tall buildings on the historic environment.
