Supplementary Planning Guidance Notes
What is Supplementary Planning Guidance?
Supplementary Planning Guidance Notes (SPG) are documents produced by Brighton & Hove City Council to give guidance to the public, applicants and developers when making planning applications. They can be topic based or deal with only one site.
The aim of the notes is to:
- identify relevant planning policies likely to affect the topic
- summarise the planning issues that arise from certain applications
- provide guidance on how to meet the policies
- give general advice on other planning issues
SPGs are one of the 'material considerations' taken into account when determining planning applications.

Supplementary Planning Documents
Following the Planning and Compulsory Purchase Act 2004, which has changed the way the council prepares development plans, Supplementary Planning Guidance Notes associated to the Brighton & Hove Local Plan are being supplemented and gradually replaced by Supplementary Planning Documents (SPDs).
