  4. Supplementary Planning Documents

    The Local Development Framework contains a portfolio of Local Development Documents (LDDs). Local Development Documents are generally Development Plan Documents (DPDs) or Supplementary Planning Documents (SPDs). 

    Supplementary Planning Documents (SPDs) cover a range of issues and provide further explanation or detail as to how a policy in a Development Plan Document (DPD)should be implemented. SPDs are consulted on in draft form but are not subject to independent examination.

    SPDs will be a material consideration in making decisions on planning applications and will therefore carry significant weight in decision-making.

  12. Planning Contributions SPD

    The Council has analysed Copeland’s infrastructure and is determining the priorities for improving it. (Infrastructure includes not only the physical infrastructure - such as transport, energy and water supply, drainage – but also social and environmental assets - such as sports facilities, community halls and open space). This SPD will set out those priorities as a basis for negotiating planning contributions from developers, so that new development helps to meet the impacts which it has on the Borough. The SPD will also inform negotiations with the developers of the proposed nuclear power station to secure the investment needed to make sure that benefits to the community of nuclear new build are optimised. The Council may decide to adopt a Community Infrastructure Levy, which would be a tariff potentially on all development. The SPD cannot do this and any proposal for a levy would be in a separate document subject to separate consultation and independent public examination.

  16. Design Quality Supplementary Planning Document

    The Design Quality Supplementary Planning Document (SPD) will build on relevant Core Strategy and Development Management policies to develop a foundation for driving up the standard of built development in the Borough. As well as giving a clear basis for decision making it will serve as a guide to developers as to what standards Copeland is looking for. It will also give updated guidance on the technicalities of planning applications, such as Design and Access Statements and ‘Building for Life’ standards.  Its aims are to encourage development which reflects Copeland’s distinctive character, and to foster creative modern architecture which enhances our towns and villages, rather than clashing with them.

  20. West Whitehaven Supplementary Planning Document

    Work has started on the preparation of a new Supplementary Planning Document (SPD) for the area of coastal fringe between the Candlestick Chimney in the north and Birkhams Quarry to the south. The SPD will encompass the former chemicals works on the “Marchon / Rhodia” site, Haig Mining Museum and part of the St Bees SSSI along the coastal strip. The Cumbrian Coastal Path runs approximately north / south through the area, linking Whitehaven Harbour to the north west’s only section of Heritage Coast at St Bees Head.

    West Whitehaven has a complex and extensive history of mining, quarrying and industrial activity which has left a legacy of ground contamination, mine shafts and scars in the landscape, as well as a number of buildings and structures of historical and archaeological interest. The area also supports a variety of interesting and nationally significant wildlife. The SPD will set out planning guidelines for West Whitehaven’s future protection and enhancement, and will identify possible areas where carefully designed, small scale development which meets local needs, may be acceptable.
