Consultation on revised Planning Obligations Supplementary Planning Document

In April and May 2018, we consulted on a revised Planning Obligations Supplementary Planning Document (SPD) to replace the previous version of the document adopted in July 2007. Following this period of consultation, at the full Council meeting on 17 July 2018, the Council resolved to adopt the new SPD from 01 August 2018. However, on 24 July 2018, the Government published a revised National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF) which impacted on the content of the document. It was therefore decided that the document, although only recently adopted, should be amended to ensure it remains up to date.

We are therefore seeking your views on the revisions to the SPD. As the document has only recently been consulted on and adopted, we are only seeking comments on the sections of the document affected by the recent publication of the revised NPPF. These are:

  • References to the NPPF in the ‘Policy context’ section on page 2; and
  • The ‘Affordable housing’ section starting on page 7.

If you have any comments on any of the above documents please send them to the Planning Policy and Delivery Team either via email to or post to Planning Policy and Delivery, Tamworth Borough Council, Marmion House, Lichfield Street, B79 7BZ.

This consultation runs until Friday 09 November 2018.
