What are Small Sites?
For the purposes of the SPD, small sites are defined as those of up to 0.25 hectares. Developments on these sites may include roof/rear extensions to existing buildings and new build developments. The guidance contained in the SPD applies to both extensions to existing dwellings as well as the creation of new dwellings. Developments may be as small as one residential unit and there is no defined upper limit - although it is expected that in most small sites this will be up to around 40 units.
