Do you support, oppose or have an observation about this part of the Report?
Please write your comment or explain your reasons for supporting or opposing this part of the Report. You may also wish to refer to the tests of soundess in the glossary of the Preferred Options document before making your comments.
The Village of Natland is unique and this with its charm and integrity should be maintained. The green gap which it currently benefits from should be maintained and no attempt should be made to allow coalescence with its neighbours effectively changing its status from a rural setting to one of urbanisation. Any proposed large scale development would be detrimental to this rural aspect and its limited services. Given the problems experienced by other recent developments it is unlikely the infrastructure could take the strain.
What change(s) would you suggest for this part of the Report?
In close cooperation and discussion with the Parish Council only consider the possible provision of a very very small number of affordable houses on agreed and practical sites.
