Consultation on Alterations and Extension Supplementary Planning Document.

Closed 27 Sep 2018

Opened 13 Aug 2018


A supplementary planning document (SPD) provides advice and guidance on the implementation of policies and proposals contained in Lewisham’s development plan. SPDs form part of the Local Development Framework (LDF).

We want to ensure that the highest design quality is achieved in residential extensions and alterations within the Borough of Lewisham. To create a high quality proposal the design process must be carefully considered from the outset.

Why your views matter

Lewisham residents are encouraged to give feedback and comments on the Alterations and Extension SPD which seeks to strengthen the design process and ensure that alterations and extensions meet the highest design standards as required by planning policy. 

Your feedback will be taken into consideration when shaping the final document.

Please read the Alterations and Extensions SPD document before completing the survey.
