Woking Borough Council is giving local residents and businesses the opportunity to comment on its draft Affordable Housing Delivery Supplementary Planning Document (SPD) and Hot Food Takeaway SPD before these are finalised for adoption.

Affordable Housing Delivery SPD

The Affordable Housing Delivery Supplementary Planning Document (SPD) provides guidance on the application of `Policy CS12 - Affordable Housing' of the Core Strategy. It explains what developers need to do to meet the requirements of this policy.

Hot Food Takeaway SPD

The Hot Food Takeaway SPD provides detailed guidance to support the efficient management of hot food takeaways within Woking Borough. The SPD supports `Policy CS1 - A Spatial Strategy for Woking Borough' and `Policy CS21 - Design' of the Core Strategy.

Cllr Ashley Bowes, Woking Borough Council's Portfolio Holder for Planning, said: "These documents form an important part of the Council's Planning Policy. The Council values the public's involvement and I would encourage local people and those involved in bringing forward development of this kind to engage in the consultation process. All comments received will be taken into account before the documents are finalised."

The consultation period for both documents begins on Thursday 27 March 2014 and will run until Thursday 8 May 2014.
