POLICY HC15

Proposals for new and improved local community and health facilities will be supported provided:

  1. The facility is accessible to the community it is intended to serve, and where practicable located within a District, Local or Village Centre,
  2. The proposal will have no significant impact on the amenity of surrounding uses, particularly residential, by reason of visual appearance, scale and noise,
  3. There would be no significant adverse impact on natural heritage and the historic environment, and
  4. The site and surrounding road network is capable of accommodating any additional vehicular traffic likely to be generated by the proposal without damage to the local environment or road safety.

Where appropriate, the Council will seek to enter into negotiations with prospective developers to secure areas of land, buildings and/or financial contributions towards community facilities arising from the needs of new developments.
