Public Green Spaces SPD

The Public Green Spaces and Water Environment Supplementary Planning Document (SPD) provides further detail about how national and local planning policies will be applied in protecting, improving and adding to public green spaces and the water environment throughout the borough. However, it is important to note that the starting point for assessing requirements are now included in Policies COM2, COM3 and COM4 of the adopted Local Plan 2030.

The SPD was approved by members and adopted by the council in July 2012.
