Received: 20 February 2024

I hope this message finds you well. I am reaching out to request information under the Freedom of Information Act 2000. My inquiry pertains to essential datasets related to planning and development, which I believe are held by your office. Specifically, I am interested in obtaining the following in shapefile (.shp) format:1. Settlement Boundaries: Defined perimeters that delineate areas where new development is generally permissible, contingent upon compliance with additional policies outlined in the Plan concerning the Council's developmental guidelines and restrictions.2. Article 4 Directions: Specific legal tools used by local planning authorities to restrict permitted development rights in an area, primarily to protect the character of conservation areas or other significant architectural or historical significance.3. Conservation Areas: Designated zones notable for their special architectural or historic interest, the character or appearance of which it is desirable to preserve or enhance.4. Strategic Housing Land Availability Assessment (SHLAA): A comprehensive evaluation conducted to identify suitable land for housing development, aiming to ensure a sufficient supply to meet anticipated housing needs over a specific period.Could you please provide these datasets in the requested format at your earliest convenience?I appreciate your assistance and attention to this request.
