The proposed modification inserts new paragraph 3.20(a) and relates to designing enterprise into communities. As drafted the MM implies that on all strategic housing allocations, there will be a requirement to provide community buildings for use by small businesses etc. Gladman considers that this is an overly onerous requirement, particularly in relation to the Plan’s smaller strategic allocations. As such, Gladman suggests that the text should be amended to clarify that enterprise buildings would be required where there is an identified market and need for such uses.
