Thames Basin Heaths Special Protection Area Avoidance Strategy Supplementary Planning Document

Draft Thames Basin Heaths SPA Avoidance Strategy Supplementary Planning Document 2018

A Supplementary Planning Document (SPD) is a planning document produced at the local level to build upon and provide more detailed advice or guidance on local policies.

The draft Thames Basin Heaths Special Protection Area Avoidance Strategy SPD sets out an approach whereby new residential development that is between 400 metres and five kilometres of the SPA can avoid adverse effects on the SPA by providing Suitable Alternative Natural Greenspace (SANG) as an alternative site for recreation, and by funding access management and monitoring measures on the SPA itself. The draft SPD outlines the assessment and mitigation requirements for development which places recreational pressure on the SPA and the financial contributions required from developers.

This SPD will update and replace the Thames Basin Heaths Special Protection Area Avoidance Strategy SPD.

Once adopted, the SPD will be used to determine planning applications along with planning policies.
