Landscape and Biodiversity SPD

The council's Landscape and Biodiversity Supplementary Planning Document (SPD) was adopted on 24 June 2008 and supported a number of Saved Policies of the Local Plan (1996-2011), including E1, E3, E5, E6, E7 and E8.

The guidance remains relevant and its main aims are to:

  • ensure that new developments respect the character of the local landscape, successfully incorporate features of landscape importance and, where appropriate, include the creation of a high quality functional landscape within the sites
  • ensure that new developments avoid causing harm to important wildlife habitats and species that are under threat
  • encourage the incorporation of features into new developments to sustain and enhance wildlife.
