The 14 local planning authorities in England selected to apply the new National Model Design Code (NMDC) to their areas have been announced by housing minister Christopher Pincher.

These are:

  • Colchester Borough Council, Tendring District Council and Essex County Council (East)
  • Guildford Borough Council (South East)
  • Herefordshire Council (West Midlands)
  • Leeds City Council (Yorkshire & Humber)
  • Mid Devon Council (South West)
  • Newcastle City Council (North East)
  • Dacorum Borough Council (East)
  • Portsmouth City Council (South East)
  • Sefton Council (North West)
  • Southwark Council (London)
  • Hyndburn Borough Council (North West)
  • North West Leicestershire District Council (East Midlands)
  • Nuneaton and Bedworth Borough Council (West Midlands)
  • Buckinghamshire Council (South East)

The national design code seeks to ensure that new developments are "beautiful, well-designed and locally-led". Developments should also fit in with local character.

The 14 councils (see above) will take part in a six-month testing programme in which they will apply the National Model Design Code (NMDC) in their area.
