Supplementary Planning Document

This document sets out our approach and expectations for new developments and re-developments, specifically in relation to walking, cycling, ultra-low emission vehicles, parking standards and travel plans.  

The files below consist of the main policy document (labelled the SPD, or Supplementary Planning Document), and Appendices A to F, which cover different aspects of the policy, and give developers clear guidance of the different areas they will need to consider and provide for, in planning and delivering new developments.

We will use this document as guidance, to assess development plans, proposals and requirements, where there is an application for planning permission.
