Authority Committee Report


The Local Plan has identified two ‘environmental enhancement sites’ under Policy ENV13 which seeks to bring forward these sites for re-development in order to enhance the immediate environment. The policy requires a Planning Brief for each site, prepared between the landowner and the Authority, in consultation with the local Parish Council, which outlines the general approach to re-development in order to inform any future planning application.
