Design Code Policy G5 Design Code Development proposals which do not comply with the following design requirements will not be permitted: G5 (1) Context for Design New development respects established street patterns, plot sizes, building lines, topography, established views, landmark buildings, roof treatment, aspect and relationship with other buildings. G5 (2) Scale, Proportion and Form New buildings respect the scale, height and proportions and materials of the surrounding environment. G5 (3) Space Around Buildings Existing spaces of value are respected and new spaces created through development should have an attractive and identifiable character. G5 (4) Street Level Design Buildings and spaces at pedestrian level provide visual interest and a sense of place and identity.

G5 (6) Important Public Views and Roofscape Important public views are protected and opportunities to create attractive new views and vistas are provided and encouraged.

Countryside Beyond the Green Belt Policy RE4 Countryside Beyond the Green Belt Development in the Countryside Beyond the Green Belt will be resisted except for that related to: 1 Agriculture and forestry; 2 The reasonable expansion of existing employment uses to diversify the rural economy; 3 Outdoor sport and recreational uses; Uses of land which preserve the openness of the countryside, and the following criteria are met: 1 Built development is strictly limited to that essential for the use to operate; 2 Agriculture and forestry interests are protected; 3 New buildings or extensions are located and designed to minimise their impact on the environment, are satisfactorily screened, landscaped and are constructed of external materials appropriate to the rural setting; 4 The development as a whole will not be of a size and scale that would detract from the character of the rural landscape; 5 Affordable housing for local needs in accordance with Policy H12; 6 The re-use and adaptation of rural buildings in accordance with Polices RE9 and RE10.
Affordable Housing Policy H11 Affordable Housing An element of affordable housing will be sought by negotiation with developers of all housing developments of 15 or more dwellings, or residential sites of 0.5Ha or more irrespective of the number of dwellings. In settlements in rural areas with a population of 3,000 or fewer a threshold of 10 or more dwellings, or residential sites of 0.4Ha or more irrespective of the number of dwellings, will be applied. At least 30% of the housing on the Bright Hill Car Park site should be affordable housing. At least 30% will also be sought on any unidentified sites in excess of the above thresholds which may come forward during the plan period. The final number of units to be provided may vary with regard to site suitability, the need for affordable housing, and any other material planning or marketing considerations. The Council will require secure arrangements to be made to ensure that the benefit of affordable housing will be enjoyed by successive as well as by initial occupiers of the property. The affordable housing provided should be dispersed in the scheme rather than concentrated in one place. Planning permission will not be granted for development which would result in the loss of any affordable housing which has been negotiated.
Provision for Cyclists and Pedestrians Policy M6 Provision for Cyclists and Pedestrians The Proposals Map shows specific routes along which the council will undertake or promote measures to encourage cycling, including improvements in the safety and convenience of the routes, the designation of cycle lanes, signposting and the provision of cycle parking facilities. Major travel generating development, including residential developments, will be expected to make provision for cyclists and link with existing and planned routes. All new developments will be expected to make provision for cycle parking in accordance with the standards set out in Appendix 1. Major development will not be permitted where it interrupts established or proposed cycle routes. Permission will not be granted that would predjudice established or proposed pedestrian routes or pedestrian priority schemes.
Potential Special Protection Areas Policy NE1 Potential Special Protection Areas (pSPA) and Candidate Special Areas of Conservation (cSAC) Planning permission will not be granted for proposals which are likely to destroy or have an adverse effect directly or indirectly on the nature conservation value of potential Special Protection Areas (pSPA) and candidate Special Areas of Conservation (cSAC), as shown on the Proposals Map.
Species Protection Policy NE4 Species Protection Planning permission will not be granted for any development that would be liable to cause any demonstrable harm to a species of animal or plant or its habitat, protected under British Law unless conditions are attached requiring the developer to take steps to secure their protection.
Dev. Affecting Trees, Hedges & Woodlands Policy NE5 Development Affecting Trees, Hedges and Woodlands Development will not be permitted if it would damage or destroy trees protected by a Tree Preservation Order or in a Conservation Area unless the removal would: 1 Be in the interests of good arboricultural practice; or 2 The need for the development outweighs the amenity value of the protected trees. If the removal of any trees is permitted as part of a development, a condition may require that an equivalent number (or more) of new locally native trees be planted either on or near the site.
Recreational Open Space in Large Resid. Policy R2 Recreational Open Space Provision in Relation to Large New Residential Developments New residential developments of 25 or more dwellings, or more than 0.4Ha (1 acre) will require new recreational open space according to the following standard: - 1.6Ha (4.0 acres) of formal playing field space per 1000 people; - 0.8Ha (2.0 acres) of children's play space per 1000 people; - 0.4Ha (1.0 acres) of amenity space per 1000 people. These standards are based on an occupancy rate of 2.5 persons per dwelling. No requirement or a reduced requirement may be made under this policy where the provision of an open space locally is, and will remain after the development adequate by these standards. Where the type of dwellings proposed does not generate a need for formal play space, such as sheltered accommodation for the elderly, the provision required will be for informal open space only.
Planning Benefits Policy G6 Planning Benefits Where necessary to the grant of planning permission and in order to meet a planning need arising from a proposed development the Borough Council will seek from developers the provision of suitable planning benefits.
