What is the Development Requirements SPD?

The Development Requirements Supplementary Planning Document (SPD) provides additional guidance on the interpretation and implementation of a number of policies within the Core Strategy. It brings together a number of topics, acting as a single and easy-to-use point of reference.

The various sections of the document were adopted in stages, with the final sections adopted in July 2019.
