SP3 Spatial strategy - object Since the preferred options document was prepared the local housing need for North Somerset has changed to 1,339 dwellings per annum or a minimum of 20,880 over the 15 year plan period. Policy SP3 should be amended to reflect this. It is not clear though why a higher housing requirement has not been proposed as part of the local plan review. This should be clarified. The plan should also set out how it will support and consider proposals for housing that exceed th

SP3. Spatial Strategy How will NSC evaluate and validate "The amount of development at villages and in the countryside will relate to local community needs"? "Development at villages and rural areas is less sustainable in the absence of a sustainable transport strategy. Further, the recent evidence is that local infrastructure will be overwhelmed in villages such as Churchill.

* We have several concerns regarding the Spatial Strategy, which is currently considered unsound. These concerns relate to the following issues: * Plan Period * Housing Requirement * Supply * Mix and location of sites Each is discussed in turn below. Plan Period * The plan remains at regulation 18 stage with a draft version of the plan (Regulation 19) scheduled for Autumn 2022. This will effectively leave just over 12 months for the plan to be consulted on, submitted and examined in public b

Policy SP3 (Spatial Strategy) * This policy states that the plan 'makes provision' for a minimum of 20,085 homes over the 15 year plan period 2023-2038. This housing requirement figure is based on the Local Housing Need (LHN) figure calculated using the government's Standard Methodology at the time – i.e. the standard method figure with a 2021 base date was 1,339 homes per annum. This approach to using the LHN figure is, in principle, in accordance with government policy that requires Council's

Policy SP3 seeks to focus development either within, or close to towns and rural areas with the aim of optimising brownfield sites and sustainable modes of transport. We support the general direction of this policy and strongly agree that new development opportunities should be prioritised either within or close to existing settlements. However, owing to the need for North Somerset to identify approximately 2,800 new homes over the emerging plan period as a minimum, it is crucial that the Spatia

More generally there are a number of issues with the overall strategy, including: * An overallocation of houses to North Somerset, vastly overestimating the demand locally. This is not driven by local policy but should definitely be contested. * Plans to destroy local green spaces, farm land and wildlife habitats at a time when there is climate emergency and as much green space needs protecting as possible. If the housing targets cannot be reduced, then I believe the council should consider an

Proposals for the north of the district in North Somerset's "2038 Preferred Options" Local Plan are profoundly disappointing. Whilst the hostility of past administrations towards Bristol may not be as evident it is clear that the same childish animus against any sort of accommodation with the City's development on its southern fringe, which so obviously, and rightly, irritated Government Inspectors still prevails. Completely disregarding the new transport corridor expensively created along the
