Policy documents and guidance
The council produces documents as evidence to support current and emerging policy. Guidance notes are also available to provide additional detail on key issues.
The documents below were previously adopted as supplementary planning guidance to support the now superseded Runnymede Borough Council Local Plan 2001 (second alteration). The Council is currently producing a range of Supplementary Planning Documents (SPD) to support the newly adopted Runnymede 2030 Local Plan, and these will replace the existing guidance documents on this page. Until replacement SPDs have been adopted, the guidance contained in the below documents are still capable of being some weight in the decision making process but the amount of weight will depend on the level of consistency with the Runnymede 2030 Local Plan and the NPPF.
