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 Planning Obligations SPD a new document which introduces the topic specific SPD’s which seek section 106 contributions (Sustainable Transport, Affordable Housing, Financial Contributions for Schools and Open Space Provision on New Housing Developments). This SPD sets out priorities for contributions. It makes it clear that where multiple developer contributions are required those for schools and sustainable travel will take precedence.
