Draft Core Strategy (incorporating Preferred Options)

Regional Context

1.19 The now revoked South West Regional Spatial Strategy (SWRSS) remains a material consideration in planning decisions and in the policies and proposals of the Core Strategy where its key elements remain in line with current Government planning guidance. The RSS policies and proposals have been reviewed in the context of national policies and the Council's evidence base and emerging Core Strategy policies to identify whether Core Strategy policies should be removed or whether other policy areas previously covered in the RSS should be added to the Core Strategy. Crucially the housing and employment growth provisions within the District have been derived from local engagement with key communities within South Somerset and relevant evidence base reassessed in the light of the RSS's revocation.
