SPD by area

Supplementary Planning Documents (SPDs) contain guidance that expands on the policies within our development plan, showing how the council expects our planning policies to be addressed by planning applications, and how the policies will be implemented by the council when making decisions on planning applications. 

The guidance contained within SPDs is not formally part of the development plan and is given less weight when making planning decisions. You can find all our SPDs about specific regeneration areas, sites and neighbourhoods in the following chapters.

For more area-specific planning policy about the neighbourhoods in Southwark, see our Area action plans. You can also find SPDs about planning topics, such as development viability or residential design standards.
