Community Facilities in Primary and Secondary villages

Core Policy 1 of the Local Plan Part 1 identifies a hierarchy of settlements in Mendip including the five main towns and a group of 16 Primary and 13 Secondary Villages. The definition of Primary and Secondary Villages is linked to a number of key services and facilities. A change in key facilities may be taken into account as a 'material consideration' when determining individual planning applications or site allocations in the Local Plan Part II.
