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.’

subject to urban design rules.
