Emerging Supplementary Planning Documents

Draft Supplementary Planning Documents for Comment

The Council intends this year to begin work on a number of Supplementary Planning Documents (SPD) and an Information Note to support the policies in its Adopted Local Plan.

These will cover a whole range of topics and areas. The documents the Council are intending to produce are:

• House Extensions SPD
• New Housing Development SPD
• Homes in Multiple in Occupation and Flats SPD
• Design SPD
• Sustainable Travel in Development SPD
• Crosby Coastal Park SPD
• Sustainable Drainage (SuDS) and Flood Risk Information Note

The suggested scope of these documents is set out in the SPD scoping document

Work has yet to start on these documents. However, the Council would like to give an early opportunity for people to suggest the issues and broad content that they consider that these Supplementary Planning Documents and Information Note should cover. We would also like to hear from groups or individuals who consider they could contribute to the content of these documents.

We would like comments on the issues and broad content to be submitted by Friday 4th August 2017. Comments should be made to spd@sefton.gov.uk or in writing to the Local Plan Team, Magdalen House, 30 Trinity Road, Bootle L20 3NJ.

There will be further opportunity to comment on these once we have written the draft documents. We will advertise separately when this opportunity arises.
