Supplementary Planning Documents


SPDs are prepared to add further detail to the policies in the Local Plan and can be used to provide further guidance for development on specific sites or on particular issues. They are not subject to an independent examination process and can be prepared quickly, but are still subject to a robust process of consultation and engagement with relevant parties including key stakeholders and the local community. This page details all Supplementary Planning Documents that have been adopted by the Council.
