Supplementary Planning Documents provide additional detailed guidance to explain policies and proposals. The process for preparing these documents is similar to that for preparing Development Plan Documents but is simplified.


Hot Food Takeaway – Draft Supplementary Planning Document

The draft planning document has been prepared to provide up to date planning guidance relating to hot food takeaways. The document sets out a number of principles relating to location, impact and health, against which proposals for new takeaways will be considered and decided.

The SPD was subject to a six week period of consultation during May-July 2013.

A copy of the document, explanatory leaflet, representation form and supporting information can be accessed by clicking on the links below.

The Hot Food Takeaway SPD is currently being revised to reflect representations received during the consultation period.

Etruria Valley Enterprise Area – Supplementary Planning Document

The Etruria Valley site lies within the Stoke-on-Trent Ward areas of Etruria and Hanley, Burslem Central and Moorcroft. The site also lies next to the west coast main railway line and A500 at Wolstanton next to the administrative boundary with Newcastle-under-Lyme Borough Council.

As part of the authority’s Mandate for Change the city council has prepared a Supplementary Planning Document (SPD) to show how the Etruria Valley site could be brought forward for development.

The SPD provides greater details in relation to the adopted Newcastle-under-Lyme and Stoke-on-Trent Core Spatial Strategy including Policy ASP2 – Stoke-on-Trent Inner Urban Core Area Spatial Policy. The purpose of the document is to set out a clear planning strategy and agreed development principles for the Etruria Valley site with the aim of shaping and guiding a high quality, sustainable redevelopment of the area to create job opportunities, housing, community facilities and open space.

Etruria Valley is identified as a strategic priority for the city particularly in terms of employment land provision. The document includes guidance and development principles on land use, the amount of planned development, required access arrangements, ground remodeling, principles for the consideration of urban design and open space, landscaping, biodiversity, flooding, drainage and sustainability.

Healthy Urban Planning SPD 

This document has been prepared to reinforce the message that health is a key consideration in the planning process. It will also help to ensure that health issues are given weight in creating policies and in making planning decisions.

The SPD was approved by the City Council on 6 September 2012 and formally adopted on 14 February 2013.

A copy of the document and accompanying adoption and consultation statements can be accessed by clicking on the following links.

Since preparation of the initial Healthy Urban Planning Supplementary Planning Document, there have been changes to national planning policy with replacement of PPG’s and PPS’s with a single document, the National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF). Whilst the Healthy Urban Planning SPD refers to PPG’s and PPS’s which are no longer in force, the overall policy objectives remain the same. The NPPF supports ‘promoting healthy communities’ and its core planning principles require consideration of local strategies for health improvement (12) in both plan-making and decision-taking. The 5 Planning Principles for Healthy Communities which make up the Healthy Urban Planning Checklist (in section 2 of the SPD), support the policies contained within the NPPF. The introduction of Health Impact Assessment to ensure that health is a consideration in planning decisions (see section 3 of the SPD), accords with the NPPF’s recognition that the planning system plays an important role in facilitating social interaction and creating healthy, inclusive communities (69)


Sustainability and Climate Change SPD

This document has been prepared by the Planning Policy Team at Stoke-on-Trent City Council to deliver measurable improvements to the sustainability of the built environment through the planning application process. The SPD will ensure that the sustainability of development proposals is a key consideration in the planning process and will create a requirement for applicants seeking planning permission to consider the longer term impacts of climate change.

The SPD was approved by the City Council on 6 September 2012 and formally adopted on 14 February 2013.

 Inclusive Design - Access for All

This Supplementary Planning Document aims to ensure that the access needs of everyone irrespective of age, gender or disability are taken into account in the design of buildings, places and spaces.  To be effective it is important that such needs are integrated at the beginning of the planning process.  The Supplementary Planning Document provides detailed guidance on a range of access issues.

The Inclusive Design Supplementary Planning Document was approved by the City Council on 7 February 2008 and formally adopted on 30 May 2008.

Affordable Housing

We wish to create a City in which all people have reasonable access to housing.  As part of this we need to ensure that their needs are integrated from the beginning of the planning process.

The ‘Affordable Housing’ Supplementary Planning Document aims to ensure that appropriate provision is made for affordable housing i.e. housing that is available to people who cannot afford to occupy homes generally available on the open market.  The Supplementary Planning Document provides detailed guidance on a range of affordable housing issues.

The Affordable Housing Supplementary Planning Document was approved by the City Council on 27 March 2008 and formally adopted on 30 May 2008.
