Supplementary Planning Documents and Supplementary Planning Guidance

(SPDs and SPGs)

Supplementary guidance is produced to give more detail on the application of policy, either for specific sites or on specific subjects.

SPDs and SPGs do not have 'development plan' status, but are subject to public consultation and are 'material considerations' in the determination of planning applications.

Older Supplementary Planning Guidance (SPG) is being replaced by newer style Supplementary Planning Documents (SPDs).
