What is Supplementary Guidance?

Supplementary Guidance expands upon existing policies and proposals and is used to support the content of the Local Development plan. It is particularly important when extensive detail is required for a specific area , e.g. development briefs, design guides and masterplans.  This allows the Local Development Plan to focus on the overall spatial strategy and the key policies and proposals. As a result of planning reform, Supplementary Guidance is now subject to extensive consultation and formal adoption procedures which allows it to form part of the Local Development Plan with greater weight than previously.

Supplementary Guidance and Non-Statutory Planning Guidance

In order for the Supplementary Guidance to form Statutory Guidance, it must be subject to consultation and formal adoption procedures which allows it to form part of the Local Development Plan. This consultation is part of that process. A summary of the comments received will be reported to the Council for consideration before finalising the guidance and submitting it to Scottish Ministers for scrutiny. The Guidance will then be formally adopted and issued by the Council.

Non-statutory planning guidance is guidance which has been adopted by the Council but without going through the procedures for Supplementary Guidance. However, the Council's adoption of it will give it a degree of authorisation and it may be a material consideration in decision making
