The Housing Needs Survey
showed that members of the Parish would be sympathetic to small developments of
affordable houses. The wish is for developments of less than ten houses. Family
homes would help support the delivery of local employment and business
opportunities. We would require that any development should be ECO friendly,
with design and materials in keeping with the area. Housing should not be second
homes and consideration could be given to some housing which is adaptable to the
elderly. New development could be subject to a Community Infrastructure Levy in
order to develop and maintain public services.
We would require that
any development did not detract from the important visual outlook of the A.O.N.B.
We wish to support
development and retention of local services such as the pub and school. We wish
to retain a local bus service and it may be that some development of a community
scheme both here and in the surrounding Parishes would ensure continuity.
