Explains what supplementary planning documents are.
Supplementary Planning Documents (SPDs) expand or add details to policies laid out in Local Plans. These may take the form of design guides, area development briefs, a master plan or issue-based documents. For example, SPDs can cover topics such as affordable housing or residential extensions.
Three topic-based SPDs have been adopted by the council so far:
The council and partners have also prepared masterplans and development briefs to guide the development of specific sites identified in the emerging Allocations Document. Two have been prepared so far:
A draft masterplan for land north of Bridlington is currently available to view and we are asking for comments by 8th May 2017.
An Affordable Housing Supplementary Planning Document providing guidance on the provision of affordable housing was adopted at Full Council on 6 April This replaces the Interim Approach on Affordable Housing (2007) and the accompanying background notes (2014).
The Supplementary Planning Document is available to view below and provides guidance on when affordable housing is required, how much affordable housing will be required and how the amount is calculated. It also provides advice on the provision of rural exception sites. These sites may not normally be used for housing because, for example, they are subject to policies of restraint. However, the site may be suitable for bringing forward for affordable housing where there is evidence of local need. All housing development on an exception site must be affordable for local people and remain so indefinitely.
The Supplementary Planning Document is an important consideration in determining relevant planning applications, which will be assessed against how they have addressed the guidance within the document.
Following changes to the national planning practice guidance and a Court of Appeal judgment on a Written Ministerial Statement issued in November 2014, an addendum note has been prepared to be read alongside the Affordable Housing SPD. It notes that the Council considers these statements of Government policy to merit significant weight when determining planning applications. Further details are set out in the addendum below.

Planning officers will use the council's Strategic Flood Risk Assessment (SFRA) and the National Planning Policy Framework and its associated guidance to help determine planning applications in the East Riding.

In addition to the above, the council has also prepared a planning note and standing advice on how sustainable drainage systems (SuDS) should be taken account of in new developments. The note provides guidance on how the Government's standards for SuDS and surface water drainage will apply in the East Riding. The note can be accessed on our design of surface water drainage systems page.
Our approach to renewable energy is set out in an Interim Planning Document (IPD) which sets out the various considerations that potential applicants should take into account when preparing renewable energy proposals in the East Riding. This is not a formal supplementary planning document.
The IPD sets out our proposed approach in meeting targets for the proportion of energy from renewable sources for 2010, 2021 and beyond. The document gives advice on different types of renewable energy such as wind energy, biomass and energy crop conversion and others.
It advises on the preparation and submission of planning applications and highlights potential constraints and planning issues to be considered by developers. The document is concerned with grid connected developments below 50MW.

The Integrated Coastal Zone Management Plan (ICZMP) is a high level document which considers how to manage the (sometimes) conflicting social, economic and environmental issues in the coastal zone. It was prepared in 2002. This is not a formal supplementary planning document.
It links with the Shoreline Management Plan which identifies different approaches to managing coastal change such as defending settlements or allowing natural processes to continue.
Also see our Sustainable environment page.
The ‘roll back’ policy for houses and farmsteads threatened by coastal erosion was agreed in November 2005. In summary, the policy allows dwellings threatened by coastal erosion to obtain planning permission to be replaced and re-located further inland to an existing settlement. This is not a formal supplementary planning document.

A development brief has been prepared for the land to the south east of Beverley, which is allocated in the Allocations Document (ref: BEV-K). The brief will be used to inform any planning applications for developing the site.
A consortium of landowners have prepared the brief to illustrate how the site can deliver a mixed-use development comprising housing, employment, open space and recreation, and a park and ride facility. The final version of the brief has been prepared following a period of public consultation in Summer 2015.
