Consultation on three draft Supplementary Planning Documents (SPD)

A  series of Supplementary Planning Documents (SPDs) are being drafted to help support applicants address the policies in the Climate Emergency Review of the Local Plan which was submitted to the Secretary of State for independent examination, more details here. The SPDs will cover the topics of electric vehicle charging infrastructure, water management, sustainable building and renewable energy, green and blue infrastructure and sustainable travel. It is intended to progress the SPDs in tandem with the Climate Emergency Review of the Local Plan to enable early input and amendment where necessary to address responses and any amendments to the Climate Emergency Review of the Local Plan which the examiner may require. The first three SPDs have been approved by Cabinet and we are now consulting on their content for an 8 week period from 22 April 2022 to 17 June 2022.
