This page provides information on Supplementary Planning Documents (SPD). SPDs supplement policies and proposals in Development Plan Documents and may take the form of site development briefs, or issue-based documents.
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.

Draft Planning Obligations Supplementary Planning Document Consultation
Oadby and Wigston Borough Council sought the view of stakeholders on the emerging Draft Planning Obligations Supplementary Planning Document (SPD) and its associated document, the Draft Supporting Evidence Base Document for Open Space, Sport and Recreation, from Monday 12 October to 17:00 pm on Monday 23 November 2015.
Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL)
Oadby and Wigston Borough Council does not have a Community Infrastructure Levy in place and therefore does not have a Charging Schedule in place.
The Council's position regarding whether to pursue CIL or not was taken after gaining a recommendation from external consultants who undertook a CIL Viability Study on the Council's behalf in 2013. The Council opted to not pursue CIL at that time, but will continue to monitor its position and is committed to ensuring that it regularly reviews its approach to seeking planning obligations to ensure that ther most efficient and effective approach is being taken.
