Thank you for your patience whilst IT have been resolving the problems. The majority of our systems are now back online and IT are working hard to resolve the final few.
Nearly all problems have been resolved, although customers may still get a "delivery failure" reply if emailing a Council department.
You can still carry out most transactions on our website. If you need to contact us by phone and your call is urgent we will try to help you. If your call is not urgent please contact us in the latter half of next week as we anticipate the first half of the week to be extremely busy.
We apologise for any inconvenience while we work to resolve this problem.
The Village Classification Report is one of a number of evidence base and supporting studies produced or commissioned by the Council to inform the preparation of the new Local Plan.
The Council's adopted Core Strategy classifies each of the district's 105 villages into four village categories (Rural Centres, Minor Rural Centres, Group Villages and Infill Villages) based on their sustainability, the services they provide and their role in the district. The preparation of the new Local Plan provides an opportunity to review the village categories and the classification of each village to take account of changing circumstances.
The Village Classification Report (July 2012) reviews the existing village categories and the classification of each village, and recommends options for revisions to both the village categories and the classification of individual villages. These options will be subject to public consultation through the preparation of Local Plan.
