Land at Belle Hill is allocated for housing. Provision is made for in the order of 100 new homes. Development should provide for the following:
1. High quality design which reflects the quality and character of its setting within the AONB.
2. Strategic landscaping to address the scale and prominence of the site, to mitigate any adverse visual impact on the AONB, and to soften the edges of the development which borders the undeveloped countryside. The scale, design and northern extents of development should ensure that development is congruous with the setting when viewed from the surrounding countryside
3. Enhanced provision for pedestrians and cyclists, including enhanced connectivity with the town centre.
4. A site wide Sustainable Drainage Strategy to ensure that drainage requirements can be met on site and are designed to deliver landscape, biodiversity and amenity benefits.
