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. However, they are subject to a process of public consultation, in accordance with the Council's Statement of Community Involvement, and related national planning regulations and legislation.

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.
