Bradford City Centre Design Guide, Supplementary Planning Document, published in 2006, defines privacy distance as: ‘The distance between the habitable windows of a dwelling necessary to ensure privacy. This is normally 20-23m but can be reduced to 15m in city centres. Where a dwelling has a front on a back the privacy distance relates to the back. On double-loaded flats it relates to the front.’
