Summary of our SPDs

You are here

Supplementary Planning Documents (SPDs) provide guidance on applying Local Plan policies. Prior to the introduction of SPDs in the Planning and Compulsory Purchase Act 2004, the Council produced a number of Supplementary Planning Guidance documents (SPGs). The guidance contained in SPDs and SPGs is a material consideration in the consideration of planning applications.
