9122 Pendle Textile Mills Design Code

Building on our previous work on design coding in the historic environment, and positive responses to the National Model Design Code process (NMDC), we propose to fund production of a thematic design code for textile mills in the Borough of Pendle, exploring multiple scenarios to support sites to be allocated through the upcoming local plan. Textile mills are a regional priority for Historic England. Our Mills of the North Campaign aims to secure the sustainable reuse of these significant and valued assets to provide economic, social and environmental benefits to people across the north. This cross-region programme has a national profile and serves as a potential model for industrial heritage and other thematic programmes across the country. A key step is enabling local authorities to secure high-quality placemaking through good design with effective integration and consideration of the historic environment. The aims of this project are to o Provide an exemplar for local authorities across the North West and Yorkshire Regions in particular to use design coding as a tool alongside local plan policy to promote the sensitive reuse of their mill heritage to deliver significant and beneficial change. o Support the production of the Pendle Local Plan, which will maximise the re-use of brownfield land the opportunities posed by the significant mill heritage in the area.
