Supplementary Planning Documents

Supplementary Planning Documents (SPDs) provide more detailed guidance on a specific policy or issue set out in the Local Plan, in order to provide further clarity on how that policy should be implemented and assist applicants in making successful applications. 

SPDs are non-statutory documents which are subject to public consultation, but which are not subject to independent examination and are 'material considerations' for the decision maker in determining a planning application.

Fareham's adopted SPDs are:
