OPDC has opened a consultation on three Draft Supplementary Planning Documents, which support the delivery of the Local Plan.
OPDC was established by the Mayor of London in 2015 to oversee the delivery of new homes and jobs in Old Oak and Park Royal. As the local planning authority for the area, it is charged with producing a Local Plan which sets out the vision and policies for development and regeneration. The draft OPDC Local Plan was submitted to the Secretary of State for independent examination in October 2018. Adoption of the Local Plan is expected in 2019.
To support the delivery of the Local Plan, OPDC is producing a series of Supplementary Planning Documents (SPDs). The first three of these draft documents have been published for public consultation.
They are Draft Planning Obligations SPD, which provides guidance on what planning obligations will be required of applicants for new development which require a section 106 legal agreement; the Draft Passive Energy Performance SPD which provides guidance on how best to achieve the environmental targets set out in OPDC’s draft Local Plan; and the Draft Waste Management SPD, which sets out how waste management should be considered in the design and management of high density developments to ensure proposals support recycling targets.
The consultation is open until February 22, 2019.
