Coronavirus: updates, advice and guidance
Supplementary Planning Documents (SPDs) cannot set out new policy, but instead expand upon how Local Plan policies should be applied. In this case, the Affordable Housing SPD and Self and Custom Build and Specialist Housing SPD provide detail on Local Plan policies concerning requirements for these specific types of housing.
The Affordable Housing SPD and Self and Custom Build and Specialist Housing SPD provides the context of when and how these specific housing types can be delivered across the Borough. This is intended to ensure that, in line with national and local policy, these specific types of housing are secured through the planning application process in order to meet the needs of the local community.
