Development briefs and masterplans

Last Updated: 3 April 2024

Development briefs provide planning guidance on how specific larger, complex or sensitive sites should be developed. We have prepared a number of development briefs for sites allocated in the Local Plan and have adopted these as Supplementary Planning Documents (SPDs).

They show which policies apply to each site and contain detailed guidance on things like access, design, infrastructure requirements, landscaping and open space.

Development briefs are prepared following consultation with the public, developers and delivery partners and are a used when assessing planning applications.

They do not consider merits of the sites as allocations, as the principle of development on the sites has already been approved through the Local Plan.
