The Agency supports the provision of retail facilities at an appropriate scale which will support communities and reduce the need to travel by car. However, the Agency seeks reassurance that provision will be made on a scale commensurate to the size of the settlement or new development, and is also in accordance with the new retail guidance within PPS4 so as not to create new destinations within their own right. The Agency notes that the background text to the policy will need to be updated in light of the recent publication of PPS4 which replaces PPS6.
