View Comments (2) ANNEX L2: DISTRICT AND LOCAL CENTRES

This Annex includes 7 proposed District Centres and 21 proposed Local Centres. Having clearly defined boundaries can make it easier to apply policies that protect and maintain shopping centres. The shopping survey showed that in some cases the boundaries of the District and Local Centres needed to be changed. In some instances, they could be extended logically to include other shops and facilities at the edge of the centre. In other cases, it was appropriate to remove some properties from the centres as they were residential at ground floor level and not District or Local Centre uses. The surveys also identified a number of new centres. Some potential changes in the hierarchy have also been suggested where a Local Centre might be moved up the hierarchy to be reclassified as a District Centre. This applies to those Local Centres, which have a wide range of shops, including a supermarket, and other facilities such as a library, doctor’s surgery, community facility etc. The District Centres are listed in Table L2.1 whilst Local Centres are in Table L2.2.
