Development proposals will be supported where they do not harm open areas which:
1. Contribute positively to the individual character of a settlement;
2. Contribute to the setting of historic built form and features;
3. Contribute to the key characteristics and features of conservation areas; and
4. Form a key entrance and/or gateway to a settlement.
Development proposals will also be supported where they do not harm individual features of a settlement which contribute towards settlement character as identified in a Neighbourhood Plan, including non-designated heritage assets.
