LDP2 Supplementary Guidance

Supplementary guidance documents provide much more detail than is possible to include in Local Development Plan 2 (LDP2) and can be updated without having to wait for a new LDP to be produced. These adopted supplementary guidance documents all directly relate to a policy in LDP2 and have the same weight as the Plan in the decision making process.

Planning Guidance

Planning guidance provides detail on a range of subject areas.  Unlike supplementary guidance it does not form part of LDP2 but once adopted by the Council it may be a material consideration in the decision making process.  One of the benefits of planning guidance is that it can be updated very quickly and can be prepared if a new issue arises which does not have an appropriate link in the plan to allow the production of supplementary guidance.

The following list of documents were either supplementary guidance or planning guidance to the first LDP. This list was reported to the November 2019 Economy and Resources Committee for adoption at the same time as the various pieces of supplementary guidance listed above.  

Supplementary Guidance documents under review

The following documents were adopted as supplementary guidance to the first Local Development Plan. They need to be updated and issued for consultation before they can be readopted as supplementary guidance to LDP2.

The supplementary guidance for the Open Space Strategy and Open Space and New Development Parts 3 and 4 were approved for consultation at the Economy and Resources Committee on 24 November 2020. A date for the consultation is yet to be determined.
