|3. Heritage Supplementary Planning Document (SPD).|
News from Southwark Council
Southwark Council is consulting on a draft Heritage Supplementary Planning Document (SPD) from 11th January until 5th April 2021.
The Heritage SPD provides detailed guidance on how to apply the relevant policies of the Southwark Plan and the emerging New Southwark Plan concerning our historic environment.
The Heritage SPD also sets out further advice on how we expect development to be consistent with wider national and local legislation and policy, within which the council must operate. (WS Comment – this document also sets out how the Local List of significant heritage buildings will be developed and adopted in due course).
It has been written to provide better understanding of heritage matters and provides clear advice on the conservation, preservation and enhancement of our historic environment. It is designed for a wide readership, including applicants, building owners, residents, planners, community groups and developers.
Consultation will take place from 11 January 2021 to 5 April 2021.
