Here are some of the issues we have consulted on and their outcomes. See all outcomes

We asked

The Council undertook a 6-week period of public consultation between 21 March and 7 February 2022 on the draft Biodiversity and Nature Conservation Supplementary Planning Document (SPD).

The consultation enabled residents and stakeholders to tell us what they thought about the draft SPD. 

You said

A total of 19 responses were received. 

Overall, there was broad support for most aspects of the guidance. In particular, the biodiversity resource and biodiversity matters sections were considered accurate, the good practice examples were considered helpful, and the step-by-step guide for applicants was considered clear. There was also support for the Biodiversity Checklist to be a validation requirement for relevant applications.

A full summary of the comments and officer response can be found in the Consultation Statement. 

We did

The representations have been considered and various changes have been made to the SPD. The SPD and its Annexes were approved by Tourism, Equalities, Communities and Culture Committee on 16 June 2022. The SPD is now a material consideration in determining planning applications.
