The condition in DM58 that development should be permitted only where no suitable redevelopment sites etc. are available and use could not be located within a nearby village begs the question of where the onus and level of proof lie that all reasonable options have been given serious consideration.  This was a key factor in the recent controversial approval of a development outside the settlement boundary in Churchill.  How much weight should be given to the wishes of the business and how much to those of the community affected?
