Local Plan to 2030 Regulation 19 - Publication June 2016

Local Plan to 2030 - Publication Draft


4.1 This section of the Local Plan deals with a set of detailed site specific policies.

4.2 These site policies set out a range of criteria that development of the site must adhere to and the policy should be read in conjunction with the reasoned justification that precedes it. There are number of other relevant policies set out in this Plan that will apply to all sites, as well as those specific criteria set out in the site policy, which have not been repeated in the site policies. These include, but are not limited to:

  • affordable housing requirements (policy HOU1),
  • Sustainable Urban Drainage Systems (policy ENV9),
  • parking provision (policies TRA3 (a) and (b),
  • improvements to bus services (policy TRA4),
  • the protection of the integrity of European Sites and enhancement of biodiversity (ENV1),
  • sewerage and draining provision (policy ENV8),
  • delivery of community provision and facilities (policy COM1),
  • delivery of sports, recreation and play space (policy COM2),
  • delivery of needed infrastructure (policy IMP1). 

4.3 The Local Plan should be read as a whole, but in the event of any conflict between a site specific policy and a generic policy, the site specific policy should take precedence.
