The Council’s spatial strategy, settlement hierarchy and distribution of development should be reviewed. The new Local Plan should provide sufficient opportunities to allow identified housing needs to be met in full by providing a clear framework that ensures policies in the Local Plan can be effectively applied. The Council should consider a revised settlement hierarchy that is as permissive as possible therefore the HBF consider a combination of the Council’s 3 proposed options is the most flexible. It is important that the Council’s settlement hierarchy and proposed housing distribution meet the housing needs of both urban and rural communities.

Summary
Spatial strategy, settlement hierarchy and distribution of development should be reviewed.
