Adopted Supplementary Planning Documents (SPD)

SPDs provide detailed guidance on policies and proposals in the Development Plan documents. These are not subject to an independent examination, and have a simpler preparation process than Development Plan documents. They must, however, relate to a policy in the Development Plan or saved Local Plan, and cannot be used to set a policy that should be the subject of independent examination.  The preparation of all SPD's is governed by the Town and Country Planning (Local Planning) (England) Regulations 2012.

  2. The development to which the SPG is related has been completed
  3. The SPGs are inconsistent with national policy and guidance or Plan:MK.
