The Local Plan, adopted on 3rd January 2019, contains policies to be considered when determining planning applications. Supplementary Planning Documents contain further advice and explain how these policies will be applied. Where a document is referred to as a Planning Advice Note (PAN) it is providing guidance on an issue that doesn’t have a direct link to a Local Plan policy.
A number of updated and new Supplementary Planning Documents and Planning Advice Notes have been prepared following adoption of the Local Plan. Some documents are existing SPD’s that have had minor changes to reflect the updated policy position. Others are new documents.
The Sustainable Travel SPD is a new document which seeks contributions to sustainable and active travel. An earlier version was consulted on with the first tranche of SPD’s that were adopted in May 2019. The methodology for calculating contributions in this revised version has been changed and is based on trips generated by a scheme, with reductions depending on whether it is located in Town Centre or a District Centre, or in the Accessibility Improvement Zone (AIZ). This SPD also sets out the number of electric vehicle charging points to be provided by developments as a minimum.
