The site comprises a former WWII airfield, adjoining agricultural land and a partially occupied employment site. The SPD provides guidance about how the new village should be designed, developed and delivered. It has been prepared to guide a comprehensive approach to development and infrastructure across the whole site.
A six-week consultation period begins on Monday 17 June 2019 during which comments can be made. The responses received will be considered by the Council before finalising the SPD for adoption. All comments must be received by 5pm on 29 July 2019.
