Supplementary planning documents

Supplementary planning documents and guidance (SPDs ) are used to provide more information and guidance on the policies in the development plan.

SPDs can be based on certain topics such as transport or design, or they can be specific to certain places such as Abbey Meadows and Waterside. Leicester has several SPDs which provide additional information on the policies in the Core strategy and the saved policies from 2006 City of Leicester local plan.
