Policy CS31 should be amended to read:
"Other services, HEALTHCARE and community facilities will be encouraged within the urban areas, in locations accessible to the community which they are intended to serve, in conjunction with Core Strategy policies CS25, CS26 and CS27.

Healthcare is an important infrastructure requirement to meet the needs of new housing development and a rising population. As a consequence, healthcare should be specifically referred to in Policy CS31, to enable NHSNS flexibility in providing facilities and services, in line with PPS 12, para 4.46.
