What is the purpose of the Local Centre?

The proposed Local Centre would be a focal point for the new community and would be located centrally within the development. The exact composition of the local centre would be determined at the reserved matters stage, but it is envisaged as a combination of space for circulation and social gathering.

It is anticipated that there would be provision of a small range of facilities, of a local nature, which would generally meet the day-to-day needs of the community. Such facilities could include shops, cafes, small workspaces, a community centre etc.
