Duty to co-operate? Not specified
the "sustainability" of different settlements in the district appears to be based solely or primarily on accessibility to facilities and services. However, this is a very limited and somewhat outdated basis for ascertaining the "sustainability" of a settlement - consideration should also be given to the environmental capacity of a settlement to accommodate new development, with reference to potential impacts on the historic environment - many of the district's 124 conservation areas are in the villages. (This would be in accordance with the statement in paragraph 3.10 of the Plan).
