  • increases in development yield, building heights and land use mix
  • flexible approaches to land use mix to be responsive to market conditions
  • protection of heritage buildings and traditional character and maintenance of the fine grained, traditional non-residential character in Stones Corner

Council invited the community to have their say throughout the development of the Eastern Corridor Neighbourhood Plan, including statutory public notification, which ran from 26 July to 6 September 2010.
