Supplementary planning documents

National planning policy confirms that authorities may prepare Supplementary Planning Documents (SPDs) to provide greater detail on the planning policies within its Development Plan. SPDs cannot create new planning policy (which should be subject to independent examination), but they can supplement and provide further detail on adopted policies. Once formally consulted on, SPDs are material considerations in determining applications.

Adopted Supplementary Planning Documents
