Bradford Council is currently producing a Design Code for new urban housing in the Bradford District.

Design Codes are a set of principles and rules for new development to help create better and more sustainable places and neighbourhoods. We want to ensure that the code addresses the things which are important to local people.

This is your opportunity to tell us what you like and don’t like about your home, street and the place where you live by completing a short survey. The survey will also ask what things you’d most like to see improved and what you think makes Bradford special.


Find out more about the project and design codes HERE.

We are currently in the ‘Analysis’ stage (1 of 4) of the project which is focused on involving local people and communities and gathering background information.

Stages 2 and 3 of the project will also include opportunities to get involved and more information will be added here in due course, in addition to the results of this survey and how it has influenced the project.
