Change suggested by respondent:

The development of this site should be removed from HELLA v4, as the change from the HELAA v3 represented overwhelming support for the site being designated as unsuitable for development.

Maids Moreton is a 'smaller village' as defined in the settlement hierarchy para 5.18, and not suitable for a housing development of this size.
