SP6: Villages and Rural Areas

We note that draft Policy SP3 states that “The amount of development at villages and in the countryside will relate to local community needs.” This is recognised in the justification text for draft Policy SP6 “However, there will be local needs to be addressed and development is focused on the more sustainable settlements.” While there is no specific mention of Rural Exception Sites in draft Policy SP6, draft Policy SP8 does provide an opportunity to deliver such sites and is encouraged.
