Supplementary Planning Documents

Supplementary Planning Documents (SPD's) can cover a range of issues, and seek to expand policy or provide further detail to policies in a Development Plan Document. In comparison to Supplementary Planning Guidance prepared previously SPD's now have statutory weight attached to them in the determination of planning applications.  The SPD’s detailed on this page were prepared to support policies in the 2005 Local Plan. The District Council intends to update the SPDs to reflect the policies in the newly adopted 2017 Local Plan.
