Issues sheets were produced on quarrying (part of the rural chapter) and character areas (part of the residential chapter). These issues sheets were prepared before the proposals were notified and therefore their content may differ from what was notified. A later information sheet on character areas gave more detail on the differences between the old special amenity areas (SAMs) and the new character areas, and also the differences between category one and category two character areas.
