Local Development Framework: Draft Planning Obligations Supplementary Planning Document Consultation
The Council’s Local Development Framework Core Strategy was adopted in September 2010 and sets out the spatial vision for the development of Tower Hamlets over the next fifteen years.
As a part of the next phase in delivering the Core Strategy, the Council has prepared a draft Planning Obligations Supplementary Planning Document (SPD) and wishes to hear from the local community, businesses, developers and landowners to help shape this Document.
The draft Planning Obligations SPD explains the Council’s approach to planning obligations. It will be used to ensure that the impacts of new development are properly mitigated and to support the delivery of important services such as new schools, health facilities and affordable housing. It aims to clarify the types of planning obligations that may be sought and the methodology for calculating the amount of these obligations.
Tower Hamlets Council will be carrying out consultation on the Planning Obligations SPD between:
8th August 2011 to 16th September 2011
The document will be made available for viewing at Tower Hamlets’ Idea Stores, Libraries, Tower Hamlets Town Hall (5 Clove Crescent, 5th Floor, Anchorage House) and on the website at www.towerhamlets.gov.uk from Monday 8th August 2011
The Strategic Planning Team would welcome your comments on the document and are available to provide assistance if you have any questions.
Any comments should be sent to the following address by Friday 16th September 2011:
