Supplementary Planning Documents (SPDs)

Supplementary Planning Documents (SPDs)

Supplementary Planning Documents are documents which provide more detailed policy guidance to complement policies contained within the Local Plan.

Supplementary Planning Documents can take a variety of forms. For example they can cover particular topics such as affordable housing or open space in more detail, or contain design guidance on issues such as reducing crime, or they can be spatial, such as a master plan for a site. Telford & Wrekin Council's adopted SPDs are listed below.

Homes for All SPD

In March 2020 the Council adopted its Supported and Specialist Accommodation Strategy. This provides an evidence base around supported, specialist and accessible housing needs in the borough.

Further to this work the Supplementary Planning Document (SPD) ‘Homes for All: Providing accessible, supported and specialist housing in Telford and Wrekin’ will support the delivery of a broader range of accommodation including housing for older people, residents with care needs and vulnerable young people.

Design for Community Safety SPD

This document was produced in partnership with West Mercia Police and Telford and Wrekin's Safer Communities Team to promote well designed, safe and accessible developments and environments where crime, the fear of crime and anti-social behaviour are minimised.

Shop Fronts, Signage and Design Guidance in Conservation Areas SPD

The Telford & Wrekin Council Shop Fronts and Signage Design Guidance in Conservation Areas Supplementary Planning Document (SPD) is a design guide to provide guidance to property owners and developers regarding shop fronts and signage on period buildings in conservation areas.
