The settlement development limit is designated to provide development opportunities in line with the scale, character and role of the settlement, while preventing ribboning and urban sprawl into the surrounding countryside, and excluding surrounding lands of high environmental quality and wildlife value.
Interim sewage disposal measures or development phasing may be necessary for future development proposals until such time as the required upgrade to the Waste Water Treatment Works for Curran is complete and fully operational.
