Our supplementary planning guidance

Information and details about our SPGs

Supplementary Planning Guidance

The North Lanarkshire Local Plan contains a range of land use policies. Many of these are supported by a range of Supplementary Planning Guidance documents which we are developing.

All the approved SPGs can be viewed by using the table below.

The guidance aims to help let you know the key issues and the way development proposals will be assessed.

The topics covered by the guidance are many and varied. These range from, for example, good practice with house extensions and shopfront security, to major issues like flood management and wind farms.

The guidance seeks to explain the relevant issues related to the topic, and cites the relevant local plan policy. It then provides checklists for good practice, and sets out how we will assess planning applications against the issues raised.

Once approved after , the guidance is treated by us as a material consideration. This means it will be relevant and important when we are considering particular planning applications.
