Supplementary planning guidance

Formal detailed guidance on local plan policies

Supplementary planning guidance (SPG) may cover a range of issues, both thematic and site specific and provide further detail of policies and proposals in a local plan. The council has adopted SPG in relation to one policy of the Craven District Local Plan - policy EMP9 Conversion of Buildings to Employment Generating Uses with Ancillary Living Accommodation - which can be downloaded below.

Nowadays, SPG would be prepared as supplementary planning documents (SPD), in line with paragraph 153 of the National Planning Policy Framework. Like SPG, SPD build upon and provide more detailed advice or guidance on policies in the local plan without adding unnecessarily to the financial burdens on development.
