Policy 8 - Rural Economic Development

Para 5.15 mentions the rural character of the District, and the importance of the wider rural economy, including tourism and leisure,. In addition Para 5.18 recognises the ongoing need to maintain and enhance the rural economy.

 

We consider that there should be an acknowledgement in the Policy itself, or the preceding  paragraphs, of the  benefits a connected, strategic, multi-use network of PRoWs (utility/recreational routes) would bring to the rural economy (to businesses, tourism, leisure, health and wellbeing), including protecting the safety of all NMUs.
