Planning Policy Settlement Sustainability


Settlement Sustainability Study 2007

The Council carried out a Settlement Sustainability Study to asses the current sustainability of the district’s settlements and to help inform decisions on their role in accommodating future growth. The study looked at the demographic characteristics, the accessibility to key facilities and services, the employment and commuting patterns and the accessibility to public transport for each settlement.
