Urban Potential and Edge of Settlement Assessment

The council has undertaken an assessment of the urban potential of the main settlements (principal towns, key service centres and local service centres in the Local Plan Strategy), which assesses the opportunities for development within settlements.

We have also assessed the development potential of land that lies immediately adjacent to the settlement boundaries of these settlements. This work was produced in 2015 to support the pubic examination of the Local Plan Strategy.
