Draft Knowsley Lane Supplementary Planning Document (SPD)

Knowsley Council has produced a draft Supplementary Planning Document (SPD) to guide the development of this site as a Sustainable Urban Extension. The SPD:

  • Sets a vision and objectives for the comprehensive, high-quality development of the site
  • Identifies the opportunities and constraints affecting the site
  • Sets a land use framework which identifies locations for new residential and commercial development
  • Establishes requirements for a site-wide design framework; and
  • Sets out requirements for planning applications, and the delivery of new development, including infrastructure provision

Public Consultation

The Council is holding a six week public consultation on the draft SPD, running from Thursday 13 April 2017 to 5pm on Thursday 25 May 2017. How you can find out more and respond to the consultation is explained below. Details of a drop-in event which will be held in May are also provided.

All responses received will be considered, and if necessary changes made to the draft SPD; Knowsley Council will then decide if it should be adopted and used to determine planning applications for development within the area.
