Supplementary Planning Documents are part of the Local Development Framework and are developed to further define and implement the policies and strategies contained within the Development Plan Documents when needed. These documents are be subject to public consultation under The Town and Country Planning (Local Planning) (England) Regulations 2012.
Supplementary Planning Documents have a greater weight than Supplementary Planning Guidance prepared under the old planning system, because they have complied with the requirements for community involvement and sustainability appraisal.
On 28th October 2008 the Council adopted the Residential Design Guide Supplementary Planning Document as part of the South Bucks Local Development Framework. It sets out the Council's guidance to secure high quality residential development which respects and enhances the character of the local area. The Guide relates to the whole of the South Bucks District Council's administrative area.

The Adoption Statement also sets out other locations where copes of the documents are available.
