Supplementary Planning Documents

Supplementary Planning Guidance

Wyre Council, together with Fylde Borough Council and Blackpool Council, have produced a joint Supplementary Planning Document (SPD) for House Extensions.

The SPD was produced under the Local Plan 1999 which was superseded by the adoption of the Wyre Local Plan 2011-2031.  Subsequently, the Extending Your Home SPD has now become a supplementary planning guidance (SPG). 

The document provides guidance to applicants and their agents on the preparation of high quality, sustainable designs for housing planning permission applications across the three council areas.

The principal aims are:

  • To promote high quality design in all house extensions throughout the three local authority areas;
  • To provide applicants with guidance on the minimum standards of design and space about dwellings which the three councils will expect proposals to meet when determining planning applications; and
  • To provide design advice in respect of extensions, even where planning permission is not needed.

The final version is available for download below, along with the Adoption Statement and the Statement of Consultation which details the consultation process which took place during the development of this SPD (now a SPG).

Please select a publication from the list below to view its details.
