Draft Core Strategy (incorporating Preferred Options) October 2010

Draft Core Strategy (incorporating Preferred Options)

Policy Context

1.17 This Draft Core Strategy has been prepared in the context of national policy expressed as Planning Policy Statements as well as other local strategies and programmes as shown in the Important Influences on the Core Strategy diagram. All these strategies have informed the draft policies and proposals in this document. The Regional Spatial Strategy, whilst never concluded, has none the less informed and influenced policies and proposals but only those retaining relevance with current (at time of drafting) national policy have influenced policies and proposals within the Core Strategy.
