Supplementary Planning Documents and other planning guidance

In July 2018 the council adopted a new Supplementary Planning Document (SPD) regarding Design and Sustainability for the determination of planning applications from 1 August 2018. The new SPD:

  • Provides a positive and ambitious framework for seeking to improve design standards, enhance the well-being of residents and increase the sustainability credentials of the borough.
  • Takes the opportunity to consolidate, condense, update and enhance the previous version and draws on experiences from recent developments in the borough.
  • Addresses a broad range of design and sustainability issues, from strategic design considerations, down to the detailed design of individual buildings and extensions.

The SPD replaces the Design and Sustainability Supplementary Planning Document (including updates and appendices) (2012) which has been withdrawn.

The following Supplementary Planning Documents (SPDs) have been produced to provide additional guidance to support policies in the Basingstoke and Deane Adopted Local Plan (2011-2029). These have been developed in accordance with The Town and Country Planning (Local Planning) (England) Regulations 2012 and are a material consideration in the determination of planning applications.
