Cameron Misrepresents His Own Planning Policy in Constituency Flyer #NPPF

His West Oxfordshre annual Report

“I know there is great strength of feeling amongst local residents in West Oxfordshire regarding proposed development and I can completely understand why.

“We all realise that we need more homes, and the Government’s planning reforms are about doing this as sensitively as possible and in a way that local communities feel involved and empowered.The faster a council can demonstrate it has a reasonable forward land supply for new housing and a new local plan in place, the more they will be able to say “no” to inappropriate developments.

West Oxfordshire is doing well in this regard and has a good record of balancing new housing numbers needed without causing unnecessary harm to our market towns and picturesque villages

Where in the NPPF does it say that new housing in villages should be done ‘as sensitively as possible’  Where is the requirement not to do unnecessary harm o rural settlements?
