An Update of the Local Plan Requires Vision, Leadership and a New Spatial Strategy

Send Parish Councillor, Julia Osborn writes;

The spatial strategy of the Local Plan is now not fit for purpose, and it never was. The continued reliance on windfall applications within villages, such as Send, without the key road infrastructure being provided, to compensate for the slow delivery of the strategic sites, is a completely unsustainable approach.

An update of the Local Plan requires a new spatial approach to be developed. There is a need for a new Green Belt and Countryside Study that applies constraints and an update of the Settlement Profiles document. Sites that have not been approved in villages that have exceeded their supply should be removed.
