Help is at Hand

The production of a VDS can be a daunting prospect and some communities do not feel that they have the necessary expertise to carry out the task.  The Planning Policy team can assist in the preparation of your VDS by:

  • Offering advice on the process.
  • Commenting on the draft VDS.
  • Assisting in the adoption of VDSs as Supplementary Planning Documents.
