Public consultations: 13 December 2019 until 27 January 2020
The Council is asking for views on these five separate consultations.
Draft Kneller Hall Supplementary Planning Document (SPD)
The Council is disappointed at the decision by the Ministry of Defence to sell Kneller Hall in Whitton, however through the One Public Estate programme the Council has been working in partnership with the Defence Infrastructure Organisation (DIO). Following informal consultation earlier in the year, the draft SPD sets out a future planning framework for the site. It provides strategic level development principles and parameters, with further design guidance for the sub areas within the site.
Draft Transport Supplementary Planning Document (SPD)
The draft Transport SPD provides further detailed guidance to support the adopted Local Plan policies, to promote safe and sustainable transport choices.
Draft Planning Obligations Supplementary Planning Document (SPD)
The draft Planning Obligations SPD provides further detailed guidance
to support the adopted Local Plan policies with regard to the planning obligations that are sought from developers to mitigate the impact of developments in the form of Section 106 agreements. This update to the existing SPD (2014) is to reflect new or updated requirements in the Local Plan for planning obligations in relation to Local Employment Agreements, affordable workspace, trees, air quality, sustainable design and construction, carbon off-setting, biodiversity, and social infrastructure (including education and health facilities).
Draft Sustainable Checklist Supplementary Planning Document (SPD)
The draft Sustainable Construction Checklist SPD describes the key principles of sustainable design and construction and forms part of the assessment for planning applications for new build, conversions and extensions. This update to the existing SPD (2016) also reflects the Council's recent climate emergency declaration and the ambition to seek the highest standards of design and construction to improve the environmental performance of developments.

Ham & Petersham Neighbourhood Forum application for re-designation
