Concerned that the policy creates a 'presumption against development' in many areas between the existing built-up settlement of Ipswich and the borough boundary.

The second part of the policy sets out that proposals for development in the countryside should, amongst other things, "maintain the separation between Ipswich and surrounding settlements". Gladman believe that policies which seek to protect gaps between settlements are not consistent with the Framework. Gaps between settlements can be protected under Green Belt policy (it being one of the main purposes) but not through restrictive blanket countryside policies.
