DRAFT Supplementary Planning Documents (SPD)

Following the adoption of the Local Plan in December 2017 the City Council are continuing their work on a number of Supplementary Planning Documents (SPD). These documents provide technical detail and guidance to support the use of the Local Plan. This is particularly important at the Planning Application stages.

Three documents are now subject to a second and final period of consultation between Monday 7 January and 18 February 2019:

  • Hot Food Takeaway SPD – Provides supporting guidance on how applications for hot food takeaways will be assessed through the planning process. To support this consultation you can also use the policies map to review the draft 5 min walk isochrones around schools and overlap that with designated centres. Please note that this is only presented in draft at this stage and for the purpose of supporting the consultation. It remains subject to review.
  • Trees and Development Guidance SPD – Advises on how tree protection measures and assessments should be considered in support of planning applications, TPO applications and Conservation Area notices.
  • Air Quality SPD – Advises on how matters of air quality will be considered as part of the planning process, focusing on mitigating impacts from development.

Any questions or inquiries relating to these documents should be sent to localplan@coventry.gov.uk

All responses should preferably be sent via email to localplan@coventry.gov.uk or in writing to:

Coventry City Council
PO Box 15
Council House

In addition please note that further to previous consultation last year we are working to update the SUE Design Guidance SPD and hope to re-publish that shortly. You will receive further notification in relation to this document in due course.
