Brownfield sites should not compromise parish aims.

The proposed option for previously developed land in rural areas is inconsistent with Government guidance.

We agree with extending approach of allowing development of previously developed land in the countryside to include residential development on sites adjacent to settlements, where other uses have been ruled out, and where new housing could be sustainable within the surrounding area.

In our view the principle should be extended to residential development and not purely on the basis of rural housing only once all other uses have been sought and ruled out. Market housing in such locations could prove to be the necessary form of enabling development to bring about wider community benefits when judged in the planning balance.

We agree that expanding the list of uses would be beneficial to allow previously-developed land in the countryside to be redeveloped for other purposes.

What is the definition of “in the countryside”? Does this include Green Belt or would Green Belt sites be regarded separately?

There are many good residential opportunities on PDL in the countryside. The policy should be more supportive.
