On 24th July the Bury St Edmunds Area Working Party will consider the revised Development Brief. (See previous posts for background on this.) Full details will be available on the Borough Council's website shortly. In the meantime here are the main changes as a result of the consultation:
1. A new principle has been introduced, requiring any new development to 'protect the privacy and amenities of existing properties in the vicinity'.
2. Clarification that dwelling numbers indicated reflect the highway capacity rather than those which can be delivered.
3. A requirement for any proposals to make a positive contribution to the streetscape.
The Brief will later go to Cabinet and then Full Council. If adopted it will establish the context which will be used to determine any future planning applications.
