Supplementary Planning Documents (SPDs) explain in more detail how policies in the Council's adopted Core Strategy and Policies Development Plan Document will be applied.
The purpose of this document is to elaborate on the design policies set out in the Core Strategy and in particular Policy EN1. It is intended to be a practical guide to help achieve high standards of design across the whole Borough and is aimed at a wide audience which includes home owners, architects, developers and those affected by planning proposals.
The purpose of the Flooding SPD is to elaborate on Policy LO1 set out in the Council's Core Strategy and Policies Development Plan Document (DPD). It is intended to ensure that the Council provides clear guidance on the factors which need to be taken into account in preparing and determining applications for development in areas of flood risk. The SPD in particular provides further guidance on how flood risk may be managed.
The purpose of the Housing Size and Type SPD is to elaborate on Policy HO4 set out in the Council's Core Strategy and Policies DPD. It is intended to ensure that the Council secures the right mix of dwellings providing one, two, three and four plus bedrooms in new development, so that, together with the existing housing stock, the housing needs of the Borough are best met. The SPD in particular provides further guidance on the dwelling mix required in developments which incorporate an element of affordable housing.
There are no current plans to produce any further SPDs at the present time.
