Purpose of the document

This SPG was produced to support policies in Westminster's Unitary Development Plan (UDP) by providing additional information on how to implement sustainable policy commitments.

The use of the SPG in the pre-application stage, before detailed design has been undertaken, is positively encouraged by the City Council.   Early consideration of the sustainable design and construction issues will improve the sustainability of a proposed development.
