Supplementary Planning Documents

Supplementary Planning Documents (SPDs) offer more detailed technical guidance on policies or proposals. Some SPDs will be updated and consulted upon. When consultations occur they will appear on our current consultations page.

Supplementary Planning Documents are usually topic-based, for example affordable housing or design, and relate to a specific policy in the adopted Local Plan. SPDs inform planning applicants what is expected with regard to a particular Local Plan policy, as well as being used in determining applications.
