We would, therefore, recommend that an additional criterion be added to Policy EP4 covering AONB objectives and the purposes of designation, namely conserving and enhancing natural beauty. The AONB would also recommend a similar criterion being added to Policy EP6 relating to the expansion of businesses in the countryside.

Policy EP6 Expansion of existing Businesses in the Countryside See EP4 above, also as suggested under Policy HG8 the scale, design, materials, layout and hard and soft landscape scheme of proposals should not be of any adverse landscape and visual impact.

· Again, this is a particularly crucial policy for a rural area like East. We feel that in the last bullet point the word "undue" should be inserted before traffic generation, otherwise many of the opportunities in an area like this, are less likely to come forward and a balance needs to be struck.

Policy EP6: An additional criterion should be added to draw attention to potential issues associated with the creation of noise or conflicting land uses, such that:· "it does not harm the amenity at nearby development or conflict with expectations for adjoining land uses." Policy EP6 does not include the text wording from the findings of the HRA on Bracket's Coppice SAC and therefore the Core Strategy cannot be considered to be Habitats Regulations compliant. The policy should be more explicit

The policy only provides for land within designated sites and does not take account of the fact that effects can occur outside designated site boundaries that can affect conservation objectives of Natura 2000 sites. The following criteria should also be taken into account in guiding the location of sites: 'Land outside a designated site which nonetheless ecologically supports the conservation objectives of a Natura 2000 site unless it can be proven that there would be no significant effect'.

In terms of Policy EP6, we would need to assess the implications of any proposals to expand existing businesses in the countryside on a site by site basis; however we welcome the recognition that transport impacts of such proposals should be considered as part of any planning application.
