Resource Use and Renewable Energy SPD

The Resource Use and Renewable Energy SPD was adopted by Full Council on 24 July 2014.

What is the role of this SPD?

The Resource Use and Renewable Energy SPD has been prepared to support Part A of Local Plan Policy LP14, 'Responding to Climate Change and Managing the Risk of Flooding in Fenland'.

The SPD provides additional guidance to the Council when assessing relevant planning applications, and also provides prospective applicants with the necessary information that they should consider when submitting a planning application.
