Draft Greening Supplementary Planning Document (SPD) Consultation

Closed 23 Feb 2021

Opened 12 Jan 2021


This Draft Greening Supplementary Planning Document (SPD) covers all facets of planning that can contribute towards reducing carbon emissions and promoting a healthier borough. It includes guidance on our energy policies both for new build and retrofitting the substantial historic stock that we have, guidance on the reduction of toxic emissions and controlling air pollution, urban greening, flooding and biodiversity.

We want to hear from our communities, businesses, developers and other stakeholders about the actions we can take in the built environment to reduce our carbon footprint. All representations will be considered before we adopt the SPD.

The Council is consulting on the Draft SPD for six weeks, from 12 January 2021 to 11:59PM on 23 February 2021.
