Supplementary Planning Documents (SPD) were introduced as part of the Planning and Compulsory Purchase Act 2004 and form part of the Local Development Framework.
National Planning Guidance (PPS12) states that SPD's should provide additional information to existing plan policies and proposals to assist planning decisions.
An SPD is given 'substantial weight' as a material consideration in planning decisions, particularly if it accords with national guidance/policy and has been subject of consultation.

The Affordable Housing SPD sets out the Councils approach to delivering affordable housing. Housing affordability is one of the biggest challenges facing the District. House prices are higher than the national and regional average and there is significant housing need.
The SPD aims to assist stakeholders on a range of approaches, standards and mechanisms required to deliver affordable housing which meets local needs. Consultation on the Draft Affordable Housing SPD was undertaken during a 6 week period from the 10th January to the 21st February 2011. The consultation has now closed.
Consultation comments are now being reviewed and taken into consideration. Further details will be provided following the examination of the Core Strategy in Summer 2011. The document is still available to download below.
