POLICY EV17

Within the boundaries of the large villages as identified on the Proposals Map, development will be limited to existing commitments, small infill plots and, in locations outside the AONB, small scale rounding off, subject to the other considerations set out in the amplification to this policy.

Extensions into the surrounding countryside will not be permitted, except where they contribute to affordable local housing needs as defined in Policy EV18.

Development that involves:

  1. The ‘capturing’ of surrounding countryside through an extension of the built up area and residential curtilages,
  2. The extension of a settlement in the form of ribbon development, or
  3. The coalescence of villages, will not be permitted.

Development will be required to be appropriate to its location and will only be approved where it meets the criteria of Policy EV1.
