The community’s spatial vision for the Local Centre is that it should support a range of facilities and amenities to meet the needs of residents and that it should have a more balanced age profile than at present. The community accepts that significant growth in population, particularly in the younger age groups, is likely to be necessary to help achieve this.
The vision will be delivered through:
(a) provision of a minimum of 113 dwellings including affordable homes, to meet a range of housing needs in the community with an emphasis on smaller properties for families and single people. The supply of housing will be delivered through extant planning consents and three site allocations with a capacity for approximately 55 dwellings;
(b) three additional housing sites within the development boundary, together with smaller infill plots;
(c) seeking to retain and expand existing services and facilities in the village;
(d) retention of existing sports and recreation facilities, and
(e) supporting appropriate employment provision, including live-work units subject to market demand.
