We produce Supplementary Planning Guidance (SPG) to provide further detail on certain policies and proposals in the Local Development Plan (LDP). SPG does not have the same status as adopted plan policies but may be taken into account as a material consideration.

A programme of SPG to support the LDP was endorsed by Planning Committee and the Individual Cabinet Member in May 2016. The Report and the SPG Schedule are available to view.

The following SPG’s have been adopted to support the LDP, following public consultation. The adopted SPG’s are available to view using the links below:
