Supporting new development that's right for local areas

1.9 The Council will adopt a positive approach to the consideration of development proposals. We will work with the local community as well as developers to find solutions, which means that appropriate sites will be allocated for development wherever possible, in order to provide a clear and coherent plan that improves the economic, social and environmental conditions of the Borough. Whilst promoting the right sort of development in the right places, we are committed to making sure that the key sustainable development principles set out in the Government’s planning framework are not compromised.
