Policy SP1: Presumption in favour of Sustainable Development

Origin3 welcomes the inclusion of this policy in the Plan and its prominent position in it as a statement of intent. We note that it includes part of National Planning Policy Framework paragraph 14 as a direct quotation.

However, such a policy will have little value (and indeed would not fulfill the Government’s intentions) if the rest of the development plan includes negative and inappropriate policies; or, to use the words of paragraph 182 on plans as a whole, policies which are not positively prepared, justified or effective.
