‘Supplementary Planning Guidance’ has been adopted and published by the Council

Following the adoption of the Local Development Plan, the Council has made a number of draft Supplementary Planning Guidance (SPG) available for public consultation from 10th May to 21st June.

Selective use of SPG is a means of setting out more detailed topic or site specific guidance on the way in which policies of the LDP will be applied in particular circumstances or areas. While only policies in the LDP have special status in the determination of planning applications, SPG may be taken into account as a material consideration in the decision making process.

The four SPG subject of consultation included those relating to Open Space and Greenspace, Renewable and Low Carbon Energy, Design and Development and the Welsh Language. Following consultation, the Council received a total of 41 comments from 6 different individuals or organisations

On 21st July, the Council’s Regeneration and Sustainable Development Cabinet Board considered all the comments received. The report below documents all comments received along with the Council’s response.
