2.            prioritise the preparation of a Settlement Study as part of the full review of the Eden Local Plan (2014-2032) and engage with local Community organisations to assist with undertaking the study and with community engagement activities which will be key to the success of the Settlement Study being completed;

3.            agree to the revision of the timetable for the preparation of the full review of the Local Plan (2014 – 2032) to manage its preparation in line with this Report;
