On the 3 October 2022, The Cabinet agreed to a formal consultation on proposed amendments to the existing Supplementary Planning Document on Open Space (Part L of the Development Requirements SPD). This consultation ran from Thursday 3 November until 16 December 2022. This consultation has now closed.
The amendments reflect Government reforms to CIL since the original adoption of this section and the Council's revised approach that all Public Open Space will now be adopted by either the local Town/Parish Council or by Stratford-on-Avon District Council. The amended SPD also provides more detailed guidance on the type and standard of onsite open space that the Council expects to be delivered through new development.
The comments submitted during the consultation period will be assessed and the SPD will be amended as appropriate prior to its adoption by the Council.
A version of the revised document is provided below with the changes from the previous version highlighted in red.
