Cornwall Council recently consulted on adopting their Housing Supplementary Planning Document (SPD).
The adopted Cornwall Local Plan provides the overarching strategic policies for the provision of housing. The Housing SPD provides additional guidance on how the policies in the Local Plan will be implemented. The SPD does not set new planning policy. The document provides guidance on the development of new homes including; affordable housing, self-build and specialist housing for the elderly or disabled. The consultation on the final SPD has now closed and Cornwall Council is due to consider the responses received prior to adopting the SPD in due course.
