Design Guidance

Supplementary Planning Documents (SPD) are additional planning policy guidance prepared to supplement policies in development plan documents and form part of the Local Development Framework (LDF). Supplementary Planning Guidance documents (SPG) have also been formally adopted by the Council, however they do not have Supplementary Planning Document status and do not form part of the LDF.

Documents deal with a specific topic or type of development, while others are site or area specific. They may take the form of design guides, area development briefs, master plan or issue-based documents. In all cases the Local Planning Authority will have regard to the requirements of the relevant guidance when determining applications for development. Anyone considering submitting a development proposal is encouraged to familiarise themselves with any SPD or SPG which might affect their proposals. The following Supplementary Planning Documents have been adopted:
