Whiteley Strategic Allocations

The Core Strategy Issues and Options paper identified an option for growth at Whiteley.

Three areas at Whiteley were identified and detailed assessments of each site is set out below.

At the Issues and Options stage, a Sustainability Appraisal was undertaken by the consultants Enfusion, but this did not include an assessment of the potential sites. The Sustainability Appraisal criteria was used by officers to assess the merits of the two alternative locations identified in the Issues and Options document using the Sustainability Appraisal Framework approved by the LDF Cabinet in December 2007.

A further Sustainability Appraisal was then undertaken for the preferred option . For further information on the preferred approach for Whiteley view Core Strategy Preferred Option (May 2009).
