Draft PPS14 Sustainable Development in the Countryside
Policy CTY 11

Policy CTY 11 – Rural Character
Planning permission will be granted for a building in the countryside where it does not cause a detrimental change to, or further erode the rural character of an area.
A new building will be unacceptable where:
(a) it is unduly prominent in the landscape; or
(b) it results in a build-up of development when viewed with existing and approved buildings; or
(c) it does not respect the traditional pattern of settlement exhibited in that area; or
(d) it creates or adds to a ribbon of development (see Policy CTY 12); or
(e) the impact of ancillary works would damage rural character.
