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

Following the adoption of the Local Development Plan, the Council made draft Supplementary Planning Guidance (SPG) available for public consultation from 9th January to 20th February.

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 SPG subject of consultation related to ‘The Historic Environment’. Following consultation, the Council received a total of 149 comments from 14 different individuals or organisations.

On 12th April, 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.
