Historic Environment Supplementary Planning Document Formal Consultation

This consultation has now closed. View the responses.

The Historic Environment Supplementary Planning Document (SPD) will provide further guidance on the implementation of planning policy including guidance for developers and property owners who are either planning new development or making changes to an existing property. It will cover a range of topics including conservation areas, listed buildings, non-designated heritage assets and historic parks and gardens, as well as guidance on shop fronts, sustainable construction and renewable energy, extensions and alterations to a historic building, replacing windows, doors and porches and development within the setting of a historic building. 

Supplementary Planning Documents expand upon policy and provide further detail to support the implementation of policies in Local Plans. Whilst not a part of the development plan, they are a material consideration in the determination of planning applications.

Due to Covid-19, hard copies of documents are not available in libraries and in the Council’s offices. However, to request a hard copy in the post, please contact us

This consultation is being held for a period of eight weeks and will run from Monday 7th December until 5pm on Monday 1st February 2021.
