Core Strategy - Consultation Draft Chapter 2: Visions and Objectives VIS 7: Smaller Settlements and Countryside Vision

  • Comment ID: 933697/CSCD/4
  • Status: Accepted
VIS7 should not preclude particular forms of development, but should simply seek to ensure that development is appropriate in its context and demonstrates that any relevant environmental and landscape considerations can be ensured.

Barrow Gurney by-pass: based on the information available, Bristol Water currently has no objection to transport infrastructure improvements at Barrow Gurney providing that this does not ultimately impact upon Bristol Water's operational land or requirements.

We support the principle of pre-application engagement, and the submission of sustainability and design statements with applications.

Core Strategy - Consultation Draft Chapter 2: Visions and Objectives Priority Objectives

  • Status: Accepted
Ob 1 - The Core Strategy does not apply an appropriate contingency to address this shortfall in provision in the event that the higher RSS figure is taken forward. Ob 2 - The text refers to transport infrastructure, which suggests that the LPA may not consider utilities to be 'physical infrastructure'. If this is the case, a separate comment should be added to the list of objectives to address this matter. Ob 7 - This should recognise that some development in the Green Belt will be required.

  • Status: Accepted
Whilst we support the need for adequate off-street parking to be provided in new developments in principle, we do not consider that expressly seeking to: 'maximise off street [parking] provision' is appropriate.

Core Strategy - Consultation Draft Chapter 4: Area Policies CS32: Service Villages CS32: Service Villages

  • Comment ID: 933697/CSCD/22
  • Status: Accepted
Bristol Water objects to Policy CS32 and Policy CS33 as currently worded. New housing and employment development should not be required to be located only within settlements and adjacent to settlement boundaries.

  • Comment ID: 933697/CSCD/6
  • Status: Accepted
It is unrealistic to require that all major developments incorporate on-site renewables. We support a commitment to achieving national standards such as Code for Sustainable Homes. We would ask that reference be made to water efficiency.

  • Status: Accepted
We object to this approach, as brownfield sites outside settlements that are, or will be accessible by a choice of means of transport, and that can be demonstrated to be sustainable in other ways should not be precluded by the Core Strategy: the redevelopment and expansion of existing sites for redevelopment would support the overall aim/visions for North Somerset.

  • Comment ID: 933697/CSCD/19
  • Status: Accepted
We believe that this emerging policy should refer to the protection of green wedges and strategic gaps '...that help to retain the separate identity...'
