Waltham Forest Council is consulting on a suite of Supplementary Planning Documents (SPDs) to support the emerging Local Plan. The six SPDs that the Council is consulting on are being prepared:
Exemplar Design SPD
How to create high-quality, well designed buildings, spaces, and places
Green and Blue Spaces SPD
How to protect and enhance existing parks, rivers, trees, and biodiversity across the Borough create new open spaces to serve our local communities.
Residential Extensions & Retrofit SPD
How to extend your home and upgrade it to address the climate emergency and save money on your bills
Industrial Intensification SPD
How to protect and support our industrial estates and deliver the new high-quality employment floorspace that the borough needs
Developer Contributions SPD
How we negotiate the investment that developers are expected to make in places and local communities to deliver the infrastructure that the borough needs
Leyton Mills SPD
How to coordinate development in the area around Leyton Mills over the next 15 years to create a new sustainable, safe, and healthy 15-minute neighbourhood
How to comment
Before we write this guidance we would like your views on the topics above. Our public consultation is ongoing until 6 August. For more information click here: Waltham Forest SPD Consultation
The Borough already has 9 SPDs. These will remain material considerations when making planning decisions until the new Local Plan is adopted.
