Settlement Hierarchy Paper January 2021

A settlement hierarchy involves identifying and grouping together settlements that perform similar roles. It identifies the functions of settlements in terms of their housing, economic and commercial offers, as well as the scale of services and facilities already present within settlements. The settlement hierarchy will help to inform the spatial strategy for the Local Plan by ensuring that levels of growth reflect the sustainability of settlements.
