Supplementary Guidance (SG) explains, in detail, how the City Development Plan's policies are to be implemented and are used in the determination of planning applications.
Each policy in the City Development Plan has corresponding Supplementary Guidance. City Development Plan Policy 2: Sustainable Spatial Strategy is/will be accompanied by area specific Strategic or Local Development Frameworks for 9 areas of the City.
For more information on polices and proposals please see here.
The Council is consulting on two pieces of draft Supplementary Guidance: SG6: Green Belt and Green Network and SG12: Delivering Development. When adopted, they will replace Interim Planning Guidance (IPG) 6 and IPG12 respectively and will form part of the statutory development plan.
Draft SG6 sets out planning guidance on the assessment of development proposals affecting the green belt, green network and protected open space and also the circumstances in which contributions may be sought from new development towards the provision or enhancement of open space to support the needs of that development.
Draft SG12 details the requirement for developer contributions for Clyde Fastlink (a public transport project to serve development and regeneration along the north and south bank of the River Clyde) or an alternative public transport scheme.

A suite of topic based supplementary guidance has been prepared to sit alongside the city Development Plan.
Eight pieces of policy SG have been adopted by the council (see below) and consultation is now being undertaken on an additional two pieces of SG (SG6 and SG12 - see above).
Until these final pieces of guidance are adopted the Council will operate Interim versions, called Interim Planning Guidance (IPG - see below).
These IPGs have the corresponding SG number, i.e. SG3 = IPG3. The Interim Guidance will be replaced by the Supplementary Guidance when it is adopted.
The consultation versions of the outstanding SG'S can be viewed via the consultation hub at Completed Consultations.
List of Adopted Supplementary Guidance:
|SG 1: Placemaking Parts 1 and 2|
|SG4: Network of Centres|
|SG5: Resource Management|
|SG7: Natural Environment|

The Glasgow City Development Plan identifies priority areas where a strategic approach is needed to co-ordinate development activity, direct investment and address emerging opportunities. SG2 will therefore contain a suite of documents setting out spatial Supplementary Guidance for these areas in the form of Strategic Development Frameworks (SDFs) and Local Development Frameworks (LDFs).
Six pieces of spatial SG have been adopted by the council (see below) - 5 Strategic Development Frameworks (SDFs) and 1 Local Development Framework (LDF).
Consultation on a further LDF (Drumchapel) has recently finished.
One SDF (Greater Easterhouse) and two LDFs (Drumchapel and Pollok) remain to be adopted.
