Please note, following a review of the implementation of this SPD a small number of non-material amendments were made to the document in November 2009. Although non-material, these amendments have been audited through the single member decision process.
The purpose of this document is to provide further information and guidance on the approach the Council as a Local Planning Authority will take in relation to extensions to dwellings in the Green Belt and the circumstances under which replacement dwellings will be acceptable.
This document aims to provide clearer advice and guidance for the benefit of members of the public, planning officers and Council Members.
Sustainability Appraisal must be undertaken for all Supplementary Planning Documents. View the Existing Dwellings in the Green Belt Sustainability Appraisal
