Supplementary Planning Guidance

Information about the Supplementary Planning Guidance that's been prepared to support the Local Development Plan.

A review of the existing Supplementary Guidance adopted alongside LDP1 has commenced, however, until the Supplementary Guidance for LDP2 has been adopted, the existing documents will be used as non-statutory guidance and continue to provide more detailed guidance on the planning policies contained in LDP2.
