Sustainable Development Plan

The Sustainable Development Plan for Martock aims to take a strategic view of development over the next 15 years, identifying location and infrastructure factors/constraints that will determine the best size and shape of new development and hence influence future planning approvals. It includes a robust assessment process through which the Parish Council will make its future planning recommendations.

Following a public consultation meeting in the Parish Hall on 29 July, the plan was approved at the Parish Council meeting on 31 July 2013. The approved Issue 1 can be downloaded below. At Section 8, the plan sets out a number of Strategic Sustainable Planning Criteria which will be applied when determining future planning applications.

The Sustainable Development Plan is very much a living document. As additional evidence is gathered it will be amended and up-issued as required, with more public consultation at each stage.
