Second Draft Planning Contributions Supplementary Planning Document - November 2018

The Council consulted on a Draft Planning Contributions SPD from 12 September to 24 October 2017. The Council has reviewed all the comments received on the Draft SPD and made some revisions. The representations and the Council's response have been tabulated in the ‘Schedule of Representations’ below.

The Council is now consulting on a second Draft of the Planning Contributions Supplementary Planning Document (SPD) and would now like to hear your views.

The Draft SPD provides more detailed guidance and advice on Policy C1 of the emerging Local Plan Partial Review (LPPR). When finalised, it will replace the Planning Obligations SPD 2010.

The Draft SPD details the type of planning contributions that may be required, the qualifying development thresholds and the level of financial contribution where appropriate. The SPD supports ‘open book’ financial viability appraisals and will enable transparency and clarity on seeking financial obligations from development.

The Council is consulting on the Second Draft Planning Contributions SPD for eight weeks, starting from 27 November 2018 until 11:59 pm on 22 January 2019.

The Council will consider all representations received before adopting the final SPD. Please respond using the on-line response form available on the link below. Alternatively, the response form is also available in MS word format below in case you would like to send it by email or post (the form includes the relevant address to return).

This consultation has now closed.
