GB7  Infill Villages in the Green Belt  Proposal

The following villages are shown on the Proposals Map as villages within which new infill development will be subject to Policy GB6:

1. Barnston Village (outside the Conservation Area)
2. Eastham Village (outside the Conservation Area)
3. Thornton Hough
4. Raby Village
5. Storeton Village

Reasoned justification :

7.24 The villages listed in Proposal GB7 and shown on the Proposals Map are those within which the Local Planning Authority consider that limited infill development may be considered. They are larger villages, with good public transport accessibility and some local shops. Limited new infill development in these villages will not compromise the purposes of Green Belt. Subject to adequate design, infill development should not have an adverse effect on the character of the villages.
