Planning and development briefs are produced for a variety of sites where significant land use change is anticipated. In many cases such changes happen over a timescale that is too short to include in the formal Local Plan preparation process.
A brief may be required where the Development Plan and any existing does not cover adequately site-specific issues which need to be addressed prior to the submission of a planning application. The brief will make it clear what is likely to be acceptable and what is unacceptable; where there is flexibility and where requirements are firm.
