The Enabling Development SPG provides guidance on how to prepare/assess a planning application that restores and secures a heritage asset but is contrary to planning policy.
This SPG has now been adopted as council policy with effect from March 2015. SPGs help to make sure certain policies and proposals are better understood and applied more effectively. They do not have the same status as policies in adopted development plans but we use them to help us make decisions on planning applications.
