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
