POLICY EP3 - Office Development

When considering proposals for large-scale office developments within Classes A2 and B1(a) of the Use Classes Order 2005 (as amended), applicants should adopt a sequential approach.Preference will be given to town centre sites followed by edge-of-centre locations, district and only then out-of-centre locations that are accessible by a choice of means of transport. Proposals which do not demonstrate that this sequential approach has been followed will not be permitted. The location of significant Class B1 (a) development within the rural areas is likely to undermine sustainable transport objectives.
