What is a Development Boundary?
A development boundary is a line that is drawn on a plan around a village, which reflects its built form.
The development boundary is used as a policy tool reflecting the area where a set of plan policies are to be applied.
In general, there is a presumption in favour of development within the boundary, subject to the usual planning regulations.
Development outside of the boundary would not normally be permitted. Exceptions may be made for development comprising 100% affordable housing to meet local need.
