Given the plan does not seem to take any account of adequacy of current levels of employment and transport within Rural Centres or Market Towns, then the rationale for treating Rural Settlements differently is not justified.  Wouldn't it be more appropriate for rural settlements (as well as Rural Centres and Market Towns) to consider the availability of suitable means of commuting to where employment is available without adversely impacting existing settlements.
