The Local Development Plan is supplemented by a suite of supplementary guidance and non-statutory planning guidance including the Placemaking Maps and Action Programmes.

Supplementary guidance (statutory)


Placemaking is a process which allows local communities to shape the future of their built and natural environment.

Part of the Placemaking process involves community engagement, workshops and public consultations to co-produce placemaking maps and actions

The maps and action programmes identify, in spatial terms, the priorities of people engaged in the development of Community Led Action Plans for each community.

Following further work to identify the exact location and nature of the improvements, the maps and actions have been agreed with the local steering group as representing community priorities prior to formal consultation.

The Placemaking Maps and Action Programme have been adopted as statutory Supplementary Guidance and can be viewed from the list below.
