Current Status Accepted
We respectively draw attention to the shortcomings of this vision and object to its wording (and that of its supporting text) in that it fails, at a strategic level, to confirm that there is to be a full review of the settlement boundaries to 'service villages' in order for new development to help a settlement become more self-contained. If there is insufficient development land made available to redress any deficiencies such as housing for young people and the retired and new employment uses then this Vision cannot be realised.

Requested change
This Vision should be amended by including the following additional sentence at the end of the Vision: "To achieve this, settlement boundaries shall have been extended in order to cater for appropriate new development".
