Air quality Supplementary Planning Document
The new Air Quality Supplementary Planning Document (SPD) was adopted on 4 April 2023. This new Air Quality SPD has a number of purposes which aim to:
Support relevant policies in the adopted Mid Devon Local Plan 2013 – 2033 in relation to air quality
Engage with developers earlier on in the planning process and assist in determining when an air quality assessment is required for a new development
Set out a clear method for developers to provide air quality information as part of their applications
Identify suitable mitigation measures to be included at the planning stage
Consultation on the Air Quality SPD and its associated documents was held 24 October - 16 December 2022. The consultation responses in full are available below.
Previous adopted Air Quality Supplementary Planning Document 2008
The previous SPD adopted in May 2008 was revoked on 4 April 2023. The Council has therefore ceased to make this SPD and any documents relating to the revoked SPD available in accordance with Local Planning Regulations.
