Planning Policy - Technical Advice Notes (TAN)

Planning Policy - Technical Advice Notes (TANs)

We have produced a series of Technical Advice Notes (TAN) to support the Adopted Plan 2036. TANs provide technical advice to developers and decision-makers, but are not adopted policy documents, and should not be read as such. The TANs may be updated from time to time to reflect changing circumstances or to update in light of best practice.  Plain text accessible versions of the TANs are also available.
