Settlement Boundaries

With no further major housing sites required in the Plan period, proposed settlement boundaries for Morpeth and the outlying villages remain tight, whilst for Pegswood, the boundary has been extended to include  land for a further 200 houses.  The boundaries really need to be looked at in conjunction with the proposals in the draft Core Strategy for the inner boundary of the new Morpeth Green Belt.  The Core Strategy also proposes ‘safeguarded land’ status for several sites, meaning that they should be retained for possible development after the Plan period (i.e. after 2031) if needed.
