6. Settlement Boundary Review

  • a settlement boundary is the line around the built form of larger settlements, dividing the built area from the surrounding countryside
  • the principle of residential development within a boundary is usually acceptable, whereas such development is strictly controlled outside the boundary
  • settlement boundaries in Teignbridge have not been comprehensively reviewed since 1996
  • incremental changes over time mean current boundaries are inaccurate
