Supplementary Planning Guidance

Supplementary Planning Guidance (SPG) can include documents such as Development Briefs, Master Plans and expressions of detailed policy.  They expand upon or supplement the policies and proposals of the Local Development Plan.

Provision is made under Section 22 of the Planning etc. Scotland Act 2006 for the preparation of supplementary guidance in connection with a Local Development Plan.


    A non-statutory Planning Guidance 'Waste Strategy for New Developments' was out for consultation between 2 July and 13 August 2018.  The consultation period has now closed.

    This planning guidance references policy D1 of the adopted Local Development Plan and provides information, guidance and some key expectations when considering waste storage for new developments.  It is intended as a useful tool for users, designers and fellow professionals.

    Comments received will be considered and the final document issued in due course.
