Other Planning Guidance
Supplementary Planning Documents (SPDs) support the development plans. All matters covered in SPDs must relate to policies or proposals in the Core Strategy, DPD, AAP or a saved policy from the Local Plan 2000. Ashford has a number of adopted SPD's which are used as material considerations when assessing planning applications.
If you wish to purchase a hard copy of an SPD please see the Policy Documents Price List.
Fibre to the Premises SPD – Public Consultation now closed
The consultation on the draft Fibre to the Premises SPD has now closed.
This draft SPD provides further details relating to the adopted Local Plan Policy EMP6 (Fibre to the Premises (FTTP)) and how this can be implemented through planning applications.
Now that the consultation has closed, we will review the responses received to inform changes to the draft SPD.
Informal design guidance notes
The council’s corporate and plan-making focus is on creating good quality homes and delivering good design through attention to all aspects of place-making. A series of Informal Guidance Notes has been produced to help ensure that applicants and designers give careful early consideration to certain areas of fine detail that are important to help achieve this objective.
The series will be added to as appropriate over time where it is considered that further guidance is necessary. The success of these Notes will be reviewed as new developments are occupied and monitored.
The notes will be taken into consideration when determining planning proposals for new homes. Proposals that are considered unsatisfactory will not be approved or recommended to the Planning Committee for approval.
