Stockton-on-Tees Borough Council is undertaking a consultation on two Draft Supplementary Planning Documents (SPDs):

  • SPD1: Housing
  • SPD2: Householder Extensions and Alterations.

SPDs are guidance documents which provide further detail and are intended to help understand how the relevant policies within the Stockton-on-Tees Borough Council Local Plan will be applied.

SPD1: Housing provides a basis for discussions and provide certainty for all those involved in providing affordable and accessible and adaptable homes. It includes guidance on a range of approaches, standards and mechanisms required to deliver a range of housing to meet identified needs and seeks to help applicants to submit a successful planning application.

SPD2: Householder Extensions and Alterations aims to provide clear guidance in relation to extensions and alterations to residential properties in order to improve the quality of householder development.
