Duty to co-operate? No

Representation Summary:

SNGP oppose the concept of village clusters because it is not settlement hierarchy, which concentrates development in 'sustainable' locations i.e. where there are alternatives to private cars for most necessary trips. If you can't get between parts of the same cluster without a car, you are not improving the sustainability of those places.

The NFPP says
154: New development should be planned for in ways that:
b) can help to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, such as through its location, orientation and design. Any local requirements for the sustainability of buildings should reflect the Government’s policy for national technical standards.

Change suggested by respondent:

Evidence is needed to show how emissions will be reduced. Good low carbon public transport services should be provided between villages which have been formed as 'clusters' and share facilities such as shops, surgeries, schools and other basic conveniences.
