Suitability has nodefinition in the legislation

Test

  • Is the use “OK” ?

  • Is the use achievable?

  • Is the use sustainable?


Is the Use OK?

  • Not one use being better than another but simply is the use acceptable


Is the Use Achievable?

  • This question draws in limitations for which significant amounts of information is available:

    • Planning

    • Historic Importance

    • Area

    • Condition


Is the use Sustainable?

  • The question requires thinking about not only achievability but also how long a particular use can be sustained.

  • Will it survive for more than a few years?

  • Also important to consider when discussing a worship user
