Cllr. Annette Wingrave
Consultation on draft ‘Supplementary Planning Guidance’ starts on 9th January
Following the adoption of the Local Development Plan, the Council is consulting on a draft Supplementary Planning Guidance (SPG) document and we want you to have your say!
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 relates to ‘The Historic Environment’.
The consultation period will run for 6 weeks, starting at midday on Wednesday 9th January and ending at midday on Wednesday 20th February 2019.
Where can I see the documents?
Printed copies of the documents subject of consultation are available on request and are also available to view or download below:
The Historic Environment – this SPG outlines the planning policy protections that are in place to safeguard and conserve as far as possible the historic assets of the County Borough; provides advice about the requirements that will need to be met where development is proposed that could affect any type of historic asset; and outlines the approach that will be taken when such proposals are considered.
The SPG comprises a ‘Schedule of Buildings of Local Importance’ (BLIs) and a ‘Schedule of Designated Canal Structures’. Comprising an overall total of 260 locally designated buildings/structures, this inventory will be adopted by the Council upon final publication of the SPG.
