Supplementary Planning Documents (SPDs) provide further details, guidance and principles for which development is expected to follow. These Supplementary Plans are material considerations when processing planning applications and development proposals in the city. This means that they have to be considered when making a planning decision.

NEW PLANNING OBLIGATIONS SPD

Consultation on the draft document closed on 6 February 2012. A further consultation exercise is likely to commence in September 2012. This document has been revised to reflect the proposals for the introduction of the Community Infrastructure Levy and once adopted, this SPD would be applied to new development proposals in addition to the CIL.
