This policy is effectively an imposition from Central Government and a repetition of the Framework, notwithstanding the expectation that national policy is not repeated in Local Plans.  The presumption is in the Framework as the proviso to enable development to come forward in the absence of proper provision through an up to date Local Plan.  Seeking sustainable development in the terms of the Framework and this policy should be the dominant aim of the Plan itself however, and the Plan should make provision that delivers the most sustainable strategy and which would support sustainable forms of development.  This would be development which has a mix of uses, is designed to facilitate the most appropriate choice of movement mode for all types of trip, and which can incorporate community based energy generation.
