Other relevant policy and guidance

This page contains links to general relevant policy and guidance produced by Devon County Council (either individually or in partnership with other organisations) which may have an impact upon the determination of applications for which the County Council holds responsibility.

In partnership with Cornwall Council and West Devon Borough Council, Devon County Council adopted the ‘Cornwall and West Devon Mining Landscape World Heritage Site Supplementary Planning Document’ on 31 May 2017.

The SPD explains the importance and Outstanding Universal Value of the World Heritage Site and provides advice for all decision makers, developers and the public on ensuring that the responsibilities conferred by the status are fully taken into consideration and opportunities taken advantage of in preparation and implementation of development.
