Supplementary Planning Documents should expand or add further details to policies set out in development plan documents, but do not carry development plan status. The guidance they contain may be used as material considerations in the consideration of planning applications.
Supplementary Planning Documents are non-statutory documents which are not subject to independent examination and do not have Development Plan status. However, they will be subject to a thorough process of public consultation, in accordance with the Council's Statement of Community Involvement, and will be subject to Sustainability Appraisal. They can also be 'material considerations' when making decisions about new development.
Public Realm Strategy Supplementary Planning Document
The document has been prepared to provide policy and guidance for any public realm improvement/redevelopment scheme that occurs within the Borough of Oadby and Wigston. The document sets out best practice and new standards of design, styles and material use.
Residential Development Supplementary Planning Document
The aim of the Residential Development SPD is to ensure that a high standard of design is achieved through all residential development that takes place in the borough.
Conservation Areas Supplementary Planning Document
The aim of the Conservation Areas SPD is to provide policy guidance to ensure that the character and appearance of the Conservation Area will be maintained through effective management.
Employment Sites Supplementary Planning Document
The aim of the Employment Sites SPD is to provide policy guidance for each of the Borough Council's Identified Employment areas, and ensure that the 'right' development takes place in the most appropriate locations.
Developer Contributions Supplementary Planning Document
The aim of the Developer Contributions SPD is to provide guidance to applicants about the types of planning obligations that may be sought as part of a legal agreement when considering the impacts of a development upon the local areas.
Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL)
A Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) has not been adopted in the Borough. In 2013, the Council was advised as a result of a CIL Viability Assessment that it was not cost-effective to pursue CIL at that time. In 2017, via the Whole Plan Viability Assessment, this recommendation was again the recommendation and conclusion. Therefore, although the position will be kept under review, the Borough Council intends to continue to mitigate the impact of new development through the negotiation of developer contributions via S.106 Agreements, in accordance with the CIL Regulations and other relevant national and local planning policy documents.
