Dispersal - villages

Dispersal: villages (concept illustration)

This approach would spread new homes and jobs out to the villages.


  • Can help to sustain existing facilities and infrastructure in the village.

  • Can help provide for a diversity of population in the village.


  • Can result in increased commuting by car, and travel to access to services and facilities, particularly if the village is away from main transport corridors.

  • Small sites are unlikely to significantly contribute to improvements to infrastructure so services capacity within or accessible to a particular village is important.

  • Potential impact on village character needs to be considered.

  • Some of the larger better served villages are surrounded by the Green Belt.
