Settlement Development Assessment

Settlement Development Assessment looks at how local conditions may affect future development in your town or village. This will help us update local planning policies and determine any development proposals. Settlement Development Assessment requires local knowledge to check and add to the profile of your town or village we have prepared. The results will be put together into a full tour of your settlement. This will help to assess the capacity of current development limits, identify the most likely places for future development and areas of local green space, which could be protected.

We have prepared a settlement profile, map of local conditions and a guidance note explaining what Settlement Development Assessment is about.  You can find the notes for your settlement by following the links in the table below.

 We held a series of meetings, with ward and parish councillors and local people.  The draft Settlement Development Assessment will be reported to ward and parish councillors before being published.  The table below shows how far we have got with this process and any completed assessments.
