Supplementary planning documents

Supplementary planning documents

Supplementary planning documents provide additional guidance on matters covered by Development Plan documents. They are not part of statutory Development Plan, unlike Development Plan documents. However, supplementary planning documents form part of the Local Development Framework, and will be an important consideration in determining planning applications.

Listed on the left-hand side of the page are links to SPDs that the council have adopted or are currently working on.

Following adoption of the Local Plan; Core Strategy in July 2013, the following SPDs have been revoked:

  • Affordable and Special Needs Housing
  • Open Space and Play Provision
  • Sustainable Design

Updated versions of the SPDs will be prepared in due course. For further information, please contact the Forward Planning team on 01246 345 790 or email
