The absence of a strategic approach at regional and functional economic area level Despite this being a Local Plan that just covers North Somerset, there is a critical need for this plan to comprehensively address and plan for North Somerset's linkages with its wider region. As both the North Somerset Chamber of Commerce and the West of England Chamber of Commerce, these deep connections and dependencies are of paramount importance for us and our members. North Somerset has deep connections to

SUMMARY: IPCC and UNEP reports show that climate change and biodiversity loss are twin crises that should be tackled together. Conserving, managing and restoring ecosystems are key to success. Working with nature to conserve, manage and restore ecosystems – known as nature-based solutions – is one of the most cost-effective approaches to both mitigating and adapting to climate change.

The new villages policy of reinforcing the settlement boundary to wrington and abandoning the previous policy that allows development of sites of up to 25 houses outside the boundary is supported. But the Strategic housing land availability assessment SHLAA still indicates that the east side of Wrington could have potential for development of 279 houses.

Comments regarding Backwell I recognise the challenge of government housing targets for North Somerset but the unitary authority needs to do more to challenge and reduce the local target. Vision and priorities, 3.SPI and SP8 The proposal to put at least 1120 more houses in Backwell during the plan period (60% more than present) is an unacceptable increase and would turn Backwell from a village into a town. This number is imposed by the plan and is nothing to do with the needs of the community.
