Development Policy

Character - protect valued key buildings, areas, views, existing greenery. Which are the most important ones?


Housing Mix - Avoid too many flats outside town centre, ensuring a supply of family housing with gardens?


Density - Building flats generates more dwelling units and helps achieve housing targets. But are the targets realistic?


Costs - Flats are cheaper to build and require less space, houses inherently more expensive


Affordability - should there be more "affordable" housing, or will increased supply help affordability for all?


Green Belt - should we protect the Green Belt at all cost, or are there marginal Green Belt areas that could be used?


Housing sites - are the locations identified in the Local Plan consultation for residential development correct?


Employment Sites - where do we relocate employment sites that are likely to be allocated for new housing?


Other Sites - With your local knowledge, do you know any other sites for housing or employment use?
