Current consultations

Draft home improvements and extensions supplementary planning document (SPD)

The home improvements and extensions SPD provides further guidance to householders on how to deal with design and amenity issues when making home improvements such as extensions, loft conversions, building a new outbuilding or erecting a new boundary.

It is intended to help people seeking planning permission for home improvements but it also provides useful information on design and amenity where planning permission is not needed.

By 'amenity', we mean daylight, privacy, peace and quiet as well as useful features such as bin and cycle storage.

The SPD supports the implementation of Local Plan Policy DE1: Design in the Built Environment.  

You can read the draft home improvements and extensions SPD and supporting documents below.

You can find where to view hard copies of the documents in the statement of matters and availability.
