Edge of centre definition
'... a location that is well connected and up to 300 m of the primary shopping area. For all other main town centre uses, a location within 300 m of a town centre boundary. For office development, this includes locations outside the town centre but within 500 m of a public transport interchange. In determining whether a site falls within the definition of edge of centre, account should be taken of local circumstances.'
However, it is not entirely clear what the first sentence means and whether there is a typographical error in this definition (there are several other errors in the NPPF). It might better read '... a location that is well connected and up to 300 m from the primary shopping area.'
