Guidance for the Definitions Standard

Publication date:  September 2020
Publication reference number:  INFO 981

This guidance is intended to help you understand and interpret the Definitions Standard. We updated this guidance in September 2020 to reflect feedback we received from councils that are implementing the planning standards. We will continue to update this guidance with examples of how the planning standards work in practice in relation to definitions.

Note: We have now published guidance on consequential amendments to policy statements and plans.
