POLICY DS13 - Employment Development within or immediately adjacent to Rural Settlements

  1. Employment development will be permitted within or adjacent to the settlement boundaries shown on the Proposals Map for Category 1 and 2 Settlements where:
    1. the proposed development is of a scale and form in keeping with the size and character of the settlement and its setting; and
    2. the level of development can be clearly related to the employment needs of the local economy and workforce.
  2. The location of significant Class B.1 (a) development within the rural areas is likely to undermine sustainable transport objectives and those policies which seek to focus office development in Town Centres and therefore will not be permitted.
  3. Proposals located outside but adjacent to the settlement boundaries should be closely related to the settlement and should demonstrate there are no other suitable sites available within the settlement boundary. Wherever possible, proposals should make use of previously developed land and buildings.
