A Design and Access Statement (DAS) is a short report that accompanies and supports a planning application for major developments. It outlines the process that has led to the development proposal and explains the design.
A DAS may also be required for proposed (smaller) developments in conservations areas and World Heritage Sites. It is a requirement for listed building consent applications as well.
