Policy C4: Protection of an Existing Community Facility

Development proposals which would result in the loss of an existing community facility identified in Policies C3 and C6 will not be permitted unless it has been demonstrated that:

  1. The facility is no longer financially viable; or
  2. There is no significant demand for the facility within that locality; and
  3. An equivalent alternative facility is available nearby to satisfy the needs of the local community.

For justification see Policy C5

One Response to Policy C4

    POLICY C 4
    Whilst I support this Policy, I suggest it be re-formatted as follows:
    “1.The facility is no longer financially viable, but an equivalent facility is available
    nearby to satisfy the needs of the local community,OR
    2.There is no significant demand for the facility within that locality.”
