7.8 Rural Settlement Strategy

The Council recognises the long tradition of people living in rural areas of the County and promotes sustainable rural settlement as the key component of delivering viable rural communities.  Chapter 4, Core Strategy sets out the overall development strategy for the county including the rural area.  The Council will ensure that the provision of one-off houses in rural areas does not undermine the vibrancy and vitality of the town or settlements in rural areas.
