What is the Regional Spatial Strategy?

Following the commencement of the Planning and Compulsory Purchase Act 2004, Regional Planning Guidance (RPG) became Regional Spatial Strategy (RSS) in each region outside of London and now forms part of the statutory Development Plan. The objective of the RSS is to contribute to the achievement of sustainable development.

The RSS for the South West will set a regional framework for development for 2006-2026. It has been prepared by the Regional Assembly which is designated the South West's Regional Planning Body (RPB).
