Supplementary Planning Documents (SPD’s) provide detailed guidance on the application of particular policies and site allocations within the Local Plan. They do not, however, create new policies. The Legacy Corporation Local Plan was adopted in July 2015 and this committed to the production of five SPD’s:

  • Planning Obligations
  • Carbon Offset Solutions
  • Bromley-by-Bow
  • Hackney Wick & Fish Island
  • Pudding Mill

Details in relation to the above SPD's are or will be made available via the corresponding section below.

The Legacy Corporation is now reviewing its Local Plan and is preparing a Night-time Economy SPD to support new policies contained within the plan. It is anticipated that the SPD will be adopted at the same time as the new Local Plan. Please see relevant section below for details of the SPD.

 For any queries in relation to any of these SPD's please contact the Planning Policy Team:
