The HCA supports the general approach to the regeneration of the town centre and acknowledges the contents of the Town Centre Area Action Plan. The reference to the tests as set out in PPS6, within the policy wording will need to be replaced with reference to the new guidance contained in PPS4.
We support the proposed mix of uses for the Town Centre, and the enabling role that housing can play. However, we would urge caution so as to ensure that the appropriate mix of residential accommodation is provided, to avoid an oversupply of small flats within the central area.
The HCA welcomes the involvement to date with the Weston Advisory Group and we fully support the objective which seeks to ensure a co-ordinated approach to linking the town centre developments with the urban extension.
