"service villages will cater for rural needs with their character and that of the open countryside protected from intrusive development". HOW???

This is not achieved by identifying the Service Villages as the preferred location for all the affordable housing needs of the service village AND its surrounding smaller satellite villages, and certainly not by using "exception site" policy which supports the building of affordable housing developments in open countryside locations outside the Service Villages' development boundaries.

You cannot have a core policy statement that says one thing in one place and directly contradicts it in another.
