Proposed Submission Local Plan: strategy and sites 2016

Proposed Submission Local Plan: strategy and sites 2016 - Part 2: Sites

Sites - Introduction and summary

The purpose of these site policies is to allocate land for a range of uses to support the vision and objectives of the Local Plan. The policies consider sites within the whole of the borough, and allocate land for development including for housing, employment, retail and infrastructure (including allotments).

Each policy lists the land uses that are acceptable on the identified land, alongside specific requirements and opportunities for future development proposals. Each site is identified on a corresponding map, and is also shown on the Local Plan proposals maps (appendix H). Detailed information about the infrastructure required to support specific development proposals is listed in the Infrastructure Schedule (appendix C), with the Land Availability Assessment (LAA) also providing further information about the deliverability of sites and potential timescales.

Phasing of sites across the plan period is not proposed in the site policies. Allocated sites are encouraged to progress development proposals as soon as possible, to help provide housing in the earlier stages of the plan period, to help boost housing supply. Equally, where allocated sites have been identified as likely to deliver in the later years of the plan period due to constraints, if these are resolved sooner, development proposals are encouraged.

All site allocations require planning permission prior to development. Allocating these sites does not grant planning permission for development, however, it does identify the principle of development and uses.

Further detailed information about these sites is available in the LAA, which forms part of the Local Plan evidence base. The LAA site reference number is shown on the site policy, for ease of cross referencing.
