Consultation text and documents:
The SPD was prepared in order to update and regularise the Council's approach to Planning Obligations following changes in advice and guidance from central Government. It sought public comment on the proposed new approach, which was published for consultation in two formats, Full (including contextual legal and policy material), and Concise. The Adopted SPD replaced the Planning Obligations Supplementary Planning Guidance: Codes of Practice that has been used since early 2005.
There is a statutory requirement under Regulations 17(1) and 18(3) of the Town and Country Planning (Local Development) (England) Regulations 2004 to enable public participation to take place on the proposals for a period of between four and six weeks.
