Sustainable Construction and Climate Change Adaptation Supplementary Planning Document (SPD)

A new Local Plan-related consultation is now open.  The Local Plan (adopted on 3 January 2019) contains policies to be considered when determining planning applications. Supplementary planning documents (SPDs) contain further advice and explain how these policies will be applied. 

A number of SPDs were adopted following the adoption of the Local Plan. A new SPD on Sustainable Construction and Climate Change Adaptation has been prepared and we’re asking for your views.
