POLICY DS2 - Sustainable Development

The District Council will require all development proposals to reflect the principles of sustainable development by:

  1. re-using land and buildings wherever possible in preference to greenfield land;
  2. minimising the need to travel between home, work, and other activities and providing opportunities for journeys other than by car;
  3. protecting and enhancing the quality of the natural and built environment; and
  4. being well related to existing patterns of development.
