Supplementary Planning Documents
The Supplementary Planning Documents (SPDs) are intended to expand upon policy or provide further detail to policies in development plan documents. They can demonstrate through illustrations, text and practical examples how policies can be taken forward. Supplementary Planning Documents were previously called Supplementary Planning Guidance (SPGs) - see our page on Supplementary Planning Guidance for details about the Vale's adopted SPGs.
The first Supplementary Planning Document the council prepared was the Supplementary Planning Document for Open Space, Sport and Recreation Future Provision. This identifies the key questions facing the council on the future provision of open space, sport and recreation facilities and provides a vision and delivery plan for tackling them. This SPD was adopted by Council on 16 July 2008. The document and associated documentation can be downloaded using the link at the right of the page.
The Council is currently preparing SPDs for Harwell Campus and Dalton Barracks. The SPDs will set out comprehensive development framework for both sites in accordance with the draft Local Plan 2031 Part 2: Additional Sites and Detailed Policies. The SPDs will be a material consideration in assessing future planning applications for both sites. They will provide more detailed guidance ensuring the successful comprehensive development of Harwell Campus and Dalton Barracks.
