Knowsley Lane SUE Draft Supplementary Planning Document - Public Consultation

The Council is holding a six week public consultation on the draft SPD, running from Thursday 13 April 2017 to 5pm on Thursday 25 May 2017

The draft Supplementary Planning Document (SPD) has been produced by Knowsley Council, to guide the development of this site as a Sustainable Urban Extension. The SPD:
 

  • Sets a vision and objectives for the comprehensive, high-quality development of the site,
  • Identifies the opportunities and constraints affecting the site;
  • Sets a land use framework which identifies locations for new residential and commercial development;
  • Establishes requirements for a site-wide design framework; and
  • Sets out requirements for planning applications, and the delivery of new development, including infrastructure provision.
     

The draft SPD, along with other supporting documents, can be viewed online here
 
The documents are accompanied by a form which you can download and fill out with your response – you can also see the Spatial Framework diagram from the SPD and use the online comments box there to submit your response*.

All responses received will be considered, and if necessary changes made to the draft SPD; Knowsley Council will then decide if it should be adopted and used to determine planning applications for development within the area.

Future work

 

The Council is intent on updating the Local Development Scheme (LDS), in order to provide greater clarity to all on the planning policy documents to be produced, as well as the evidence base, and the timescales for completing them. Please click here to see our current LDS.

 

We are currently undertaking work on a further round of SPDs, each of which are listed below:

 
  • East of Halewood Sustainable Urban Extension SPD

 

It is anticipated that a formal consultation on these SPDs will take place in the Spring of 2017 and all will provide further detail to support certain policies within the adopted Knowsley Local Plan: Core Strategy (2016).

Update to Local Plan Consultation Database
 
In December we completed a full update our Local Plan Consultation Database. We contacted everyone on the database and asked them to confirm their details with us otherwise their details would be deleted and they would receive no further correspondence. This has now been done and we have started to compile a new database.
Should you wish to register to be added to the new database you can do so by contacting us using the details below.
