The scale of new development allows us to bring forward new facilities such as schools, child care, health services, a library and other community facilities. We have been working with local authorities and public sector partners to plan for the right facilities, in the right locations, to come forward at the right time.
Essential facilities will be delivered through a legal agreement with local authorities with delivery linked to the number of houses being built. This will be regularly reviewed to ensure that the right facilities are provided to meet growing need.
Facilities will include:
Principles established in the Application about these facilities include:
The majority of community and leisure facilities will be located within centres to include: civic uses, sport and leisure centres, gyms, multi-purpose community centres, health centre, other health uses, library, faith spaces, cultural attractions and nursery/crèche.
Care home and sheltered accommodation will be located within 400m of a bus stop or a defined centre.
