Kneller Hall Masterplan Supplementary Planning Document (SPD) Informal Consultation

Closes 10 Jun 2019

Opened 9 May 2019


The Council and the Defence Infrastructure Organisation (on behalf of the Ministry of Defence as landowner) have agreed to work together to develop a future planning framework for the site. Together, we have received government funding to develop a Supplementary Planning Document (SPD) in consultation with the local community. 

The SPD will guide future development for the site, including indications of the location, scale, and form of development and how it can contribute to the vitality and viability of the local area. It will be adopted by the Council at the end of 2019/early 2020 and will be a material consideration in determining any future planning applications.

This is a first, and informal, stage of consultation which will help to inform the development of the SPD, which builds on the Council’s adopted planning policy for the site. The purpose of this stage of consultation is to let you know about the background work that has been undertaken so far and to help us to get an understanding of what is important to you when considering the future of the Kneller Hall site. 

Draft guidance will then be developed over the summer having considered your views, and a formal (statutory) consultation will be carried out later in 2019 so that residents, businesses and local community groups will have an opportunity to comment on the draft SPD itself before it is adopted by the Council.

Please read through the information on the boards and Heritage Assets Assessment that can be found at the bottom of this page to assist you with answering the questions.
