Supplementary Planning Documents

Supplementary Planning Guidance

Supplementary Planning Guidance (SPG) is a way of providing additional details and information to support the Council in its role as the Local Planning Authority.

Planning Authorities can prepare SPG to give more detail or elaborate policies in their Local Plans. SPG that has undergone formal consultation and has been adopted can be used to support the Council's decision making process. It becomes a 'material consideration' in the determination of planning applications and appeals.

SPG can also be used to provide detailed information to the general public and to potential applicants. Current SPG available to download includes:-

Affordable and Special Needs Housing as Part of Housing Development

Garden Extensions and Alterations

Recreational Open Space

Residential Extensions and Alterations

An Adopted SPG on 'Planning out Crime' has been developed in partnership by Northamptonshire County Council, Northamptonshire Police, and the District and Borough Councils of Corby, Daventry, East Northamptonshire, Kettering, Northampton, South Northamptonshire, and Wellingborough. The main aim of the SPG is to minimise crime and fear of crime by ensuring that new development incorporates crime prevention measures through design.
