What is a Supplementary Planning Document?
Supplementary planning documents (SPDs) provide additional help and advice to applicants, architects and planning agents on what we expect to see when certain applications are submitted.
For example, the Conversion and Re-Use of Buildings in the Countryside gives advice and guidance on the design and layout of rural buildings as well as setting out what uses are acceptable in the countryside.
Before submitting a planning application it is advisable to consider the information found in these documents.
