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

A49: Palm House Nurseries, Normandy

POLICY A49: Palm House Nurseries, Normandy

Allocation

The site is allocated for 6 Traveller pitches (sui generis)

Requirements

  • The pitches will be private tenure
  • Ancillary buildings must be proportionate in size to the mobile homes and caravans and should be no more than one storey in height
  • Bricks and mortar housing, or any buildings capable of being converted to bricks and mortar housing, are not appropriate and will be resisted on this site
  • The Council will seek to maintain defensible site boundaries sensitive to the countryside setting, whilst not enclosing the site with hard landscaping, high walls or fences, to an extent that suggests deliberate isolation from the community

Opportunities

  • Traveller sites can often be visually hard landscaped environments, and any attempts to provide soft landscaping would be beneficial
