The 360 page core strategy!
The whole point of core strategies was to be brief – Bradford’s – after over 5 years in gestation has produced a pre-submission version 360 pages long – and just one of a suite of dpds!
And a very representative document it is repeating the distributional policies between spatial and thematic sections – whilst you can’t actually tell from the spatial strategy policy why some areas have been chosen and other not, and what the strategic sites actually are, even though clearly being taken from a SHLAA.
How the historic village of Haworth – of 2,000 people can justify 600 extra houses I dont know.
In need of a red pen and a very thorough rewrite.
