What is a Design and Access Statement (DAS)?

A Design and Access Statement (DAS) supports a planning application to illustrate the process that has led to the development proposal and is a requirement for some types of development under town and country planning law. The DAS would include a ‘Vision’ for the development through the use of urban design principles, published landscape character, any relevant designations, and strategic recommendations for the site (in terms of reducing the effects on landscape character and visual amenity); and brief, high-level analysis of its suitability for development from a landscape and visual perspective. The DAS would cover: response to context: amount, layout, scale, landscape, access and appearance.
