Amend paragraph 9.32 to read:

Delivering great, affordable homes will be key to making the village distinctive and desirable. At least 1,6502,700 homes are planned within the Plan period, with an indicative capacity of around 4,000 (with the remainder to be delivered after 2033, subject to further feasibility and assessment of impact).

The creative interweaving of productive landscapes within the GBI network will be favourably considered. The agricultural heritage of the site also provides a distinctive cultural context to inspire green infrastructure with a focus on food production and foraging as alternatives to grassed verges; while grass verges are well-loved in garden communities, alternatives or additional elements, such as sensory street verges through the use of, for example, culinary herbs or linear orchards could also add another dimension to the much-loved and expected tree-lined and green verge-lined residential avenues. Allotments and open space should be provided in accordance with Policy NE05 and NE06 Some allotments should be created for any residential properties which may not have a garden.
 

Add new para after title Designated & Non-designated heritage assets, before para 9.45, to read:

  • Nightingales Lane (non-designated) on-site;
  • Windmill - site of (non-designated) on-site;
  • Cottages at entrance to golf course (non-designated) on-site.
    Development proposals will be considered by reference to the requirements of Policy BE16 and the specific requirements of R01(ii).


Amend paragraph 9.72 to read:

Strategic Objective DH02b (all through learning) will deliver an exemplar all through school with a design that fosters a learning environment for alleducation facilities that meet the needs of all types of learners and through life, from nursery through to adult learning opportunities.
 

Amend paragraph 9.76 to read:

Equally however, the village centre(s) themselves should provide opportunities for localised employment, to ensure a thriving local economy ensues. The spaces should be designed to flexibly accommodate A1-A5 use classes as well as appropriate B1 Class E and other employment development and other community spaces that are complementary to, and compatible with, the residential development, thinking particularly about the entrepreneurial potential of the area.
