The AAP allocates land for housing, employment, retail, recreation, open space and community facilities within two sustainable urban extensions north-west of Barwell and south-east of Earl Shilton. It also contains policies which relate to proposals that require site specific conditions such as design guidance, conservation and protection of open spaces and further policies which will be used in the day-to-day assessment of planning applications across the entire settlements.
