Supplementary Planning Document - Pre-adoption draft - January 2014


Public consultation in accordance with Regulations 12 & 13 of the Town and Country Planning (Local Planning) (England) Regulations 2012 and Regulation 13 of the Environmental Assessment of Plans & Programmes Regulations 2004

The Council’s Core Strategy, was subject to independent examination in 2012 and adopted in December 2013. It identifies land at Cribbs Causeway/Patchway for mixed-use development and to help deliver its strategic housing and employment needs up to 2027.

The Cribbs/Patchway New Neighbourhood Supplementary Planning Document (SPD) shows in more detail how the Council considers the Core Strategy allocation for 5,700 dwellings, around 50 hectares of employment land, open spaces and supporting infrastructure should be developed.

The Council consulted on preliminary drafts of the SPD in the Autumn 2011, and again in June and October 2013. The Council is now consulting on a revised draft with a view to its adoption and your comments are invited.

Consultation will be between Monday 20th January and Friday 28th February 2014.

Comments received will be considered by the Council in deciding whether to adopt the SPD, with or without further amendment. That decision is expected to be made in March 2014.

Once adopted, the Supplementary Planning Document will set out the principles and objectives for the area that the Council will use in determining any planning applications for the New Neighbourhood, and will identify the infrastructure required to support the needs of the new communities living there.

Documents and information on how to comment are available below:

Consultation Topic
  • Planning policy & strategy
Marking a consultation as relevant to a particular audience indicates that it may be of special relevance to people within that group. It doesn't, however, mean that other groups wont find the consultation of interest - we welcome responses from everybody.
For example, education issues may be of particular interest to Parents & Guardians, and so will be shown to people searching the system for parenting issues, but the views of others (eg: Business, Faith Groups) are also relevant.
