Closed: SPD and SCI consultation

You are here

Please note: This consultation is now closed

Supplementary Planning Documents (SPDs) do not form part of the statutory development plan, but provide additional detail to policies set out in development plan documents and national policy. SPDs are material considerations in the decision-making process. The Council is seeking views on the content of the following six SPDs which it will be producing in the next twelve months.

Please note, although a similar exercise was undertaken for the Low Emissions Strategy SPD, Reptile Strategy SPD, and Parking Guidance (Standards) for the IP-One Area SPD in 2015, we would welcome any further thoughts on these.

The Council’s Statement of Community Involvement (SCI) outlines how the Council will engage with the community in the preparation of planning documents and when considering planning applications. The first SCI was adopted in September 2007, with a review adopted in March 2014. In response to operational changes in local government, the Council is reviewing how it can engage with the community in a more effective manner finding better ways to use technology to communicate planning matters.

Your views are invited on the effectiveness of techniques the Council currently uses to engage you in plan preparation and when determining planning applications.
