4. Sustainable Settlements
New Local Plan Options
Representation ID: 4837
Respondent: Mr Stephen Lucas
Section 55 of the NPPF is noted and there is a fundamental need to enhance and maintain the vitality of rural communitied in this district. The aim of the Government is to allow the rural areas to grow and develop sustainably. This aspect must not be forgotten or brushed aside. We question whether the large SDA's are truly sustainable.
The settlement profiles should have been subject to wider consultation. We believe a number of assumptions in para 27 are too simplistic. There should be recognition that there might be imprecision in the categorization.
