The Malvern Hills District Shop Front Design Guide SPD, adopted in March 2017, sets out the Council’s guidance on the design and appearance of shop fronts in Malvern Hills District. It gives advice on the maintenance and  restoration of existing shop fronts and the design of new shop fronts. As many shops are in Conservation Areas or within or close to historic buildings, the Design Guide SPD will help to conserve the street scene and the district’s heritage, as well as promoting good design generally. The Design Guide SPD is relevant to businesses, property owners, architects and designers, Planning Officers and Inspectors, and will be a material consideration in making decisions on applications for the provision of new shop fronts, or the alteration of existing ones.
