Supplementary Planning Guidance

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

Supplementary Planning Guidance (SPG) goes into detail about the policies and proposals of the Local Development Plan (LDP).

A series of statutory Supplementary Guidance  documents were adopted alongside LDP1 (June 2015).  LDP1 has now been replaced by the adoption of LDP2 (March 2022).  The Council has commenced the review of the existing Supplementary Guidance, however, until the Supplementary Guidance for LDP2 have 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.
