Additional Planning Guidance and Advice Notes

We've produced a number of supplementary planning guidance documents and advice notes. These guidance documents elaborate on the policies in the adopted Local Plan, either by providing more detail on general matters or for specific land areas. These documents are referred to either as "supplementary planning guidance" (SPG) or "supplementary planning document" (SPD).

Supplementary planning documents are essentially the same as supplementary planning guidance but have been prepared according to the detailed provisions of the Planning and Compulsory Purchase Act 2004 and associated Regulations and Advice. Where there is a conflict between their content and that of the adopted Core Strategy, the Core Strategy will take precedence. The guidance documents are listed below:
