Draft Part V of the Development Requirements Supplementary Planning Document (SPD) focuses solely on adaptation and mitigation relating to Climate Change. It is an additional document that will form part of the existing Development Requirements SPD, that was adopted in July 2019. Once adopted it will become a material consideration and will be used by Stratford-on-Avon District Council to help reach decisions on whether to approve or refuse planning applications. The section will provide advice and guidance to applicants when submitting planning applications.
On Thursday 9 of January 2020 the Council started a formal consultation in accordance with the Town and Country Planning (Local Planning) (England) Regulations. The consultation period will run until Friday 21 February 2020, providing individuals and organisations the opportunity to put forward comments relating to all aspects of the proposed guidance.
The interactive Climate Change SPD and the downloadable comments form can both be found below.
As part of the consultation process the Council will be holding a public drop-in session for residents and local businesses, providing the opportunity to discuss the principles and ask any questions. This will be taking place on Tuesday 4 February 2020 in Room 002 at The Council Offices, Elizabeth House, Stratford-upon-Avon, between 15:00 - 19:00. We welcome attendance by all those that have questions regarding the document or the consultation process.
*Please note that in order for comments and representations to be considered, they must be made formally using the interactive document or by completing the comments form.
As part of the consultation process the Council has created a leaflet, summarising the main principles within the Climate Change SPD. This leaflet will allow individuals to see a broad overview of the topics discussed and help to identify which areas may be of interest.
The Council has also created a consultation poster to alert people to the ongoing consultation. Please feel free to share this poster on social media or, if appropriate, print off and place on local notice boards.
