Star building

Bradford City Centre Design Guide, Supplementary Planning Document, published in 2006, defines a star building as: ‘…a building that is special by virtue of its role. Traditionally this would include churches, town halls and other public institutions. These buildings should be commissioned by public competition but are not subject to the same rules as other buildings.’

Supporting cast buildings are: '...the majority of buildings in an urban area - all of the housing, shops and offices. These create the urban form of an urban area and should be
subject to urban design rules.
