Working Group: Planning and Development

We want to drive and support sustainable development which delivers homes, businesses and infrastructure, helping our community to flourish as it meets present and future demands.

We will need to consider:
  • How we can provide affordable housing, and homes suitable for the elderly
  • Identifying areas where employment opportunities, business and housing development can be supported, but not in a way which jeopardsises Conservation Areas, the Green Belt or our rural surroundings
  • Improving access to open spaces and developing links between important hubs within our communities
  • Maximising the use of buildings, including those currently under-utilised, and providing improved space for community use.
