Supplementary Planning Documents (SPD)

Supplementary Planning Documents (SPDs) are intended to provide detailed guidance on how planning policy will be implemented.

Adopted SPDs

The following SPDs have been formally adopted, following public consultation, and are material considerations that can be taken into account when determining a planning application.

SPDs under preparation

The council has commenced preparation of the Urban Design Framework SPD. An early stage of consultation is anticipated for summer 2018.

A Strategic Environmental Assessment screening has been carried out. This determined that the SPD is unlikely to have significant adverse environmental effects and therefore does not require Strategic Environmental Assessment.
