The catchment of Hainford Primary School brings Hainford together with Stratton Strawless into a village cluster under policy 7.4. The school currently has capacity, but is landlocked which would prevent further expansion. In addition to the primary school, services in the cluster include a village hall and public transport service.
Whilst it is considered the cluster could accommodate development of 50-60 additional homes, there are currently no new allocations proposed and no allocations to be carried forward in this cluster. There are however 9 dwellings with planning permission on small sites. No new allocations are proposed but further development is not ruled out. The Village Clusters policy 7.4 and Small Scale Windfall Housing Development policy 7.5 both allow for an amount of growth in each village cluster that reflects primary school capacity. See settlement map for the extent of existing settlement limits.
