4.1 Housing and employment provision will continue to be accommodated on acceptable sites within the settlement policy boundary of Horndean.

4.2 In addition, the Joint Core Strategy (CP10) states that, beyond existing commitments, new sites will be identified for a minimum of 700 dwellings at Horndean. One new site has already been granted planning permission in Horndean under this policy providing 40 dwellings. Where such permissions have been granted the appropriate amendment to the settlement policy boundary is shown below. Additional provision is made in this Plan in Policy HN1.1 for 660 dwellings.
