The number of one-person households in England is projected to increase by 26% between 2016 and 2041, driven by increases in the number of people aged 65 years and over living on their own. The number of people aged 90 years and over living on their own is projected to more than double, from 241,000 in 2016 to 588,000 in 2041.

There should be a requirement that new development facilitated support to enable new, or improved, walking and cycling routes within the town to connect to infrastructure to support Active Travel (including "prioritising cycling for commuting" in its definition) outside the Towns boundary.

I am in support of the Plan, I can only really comment on Portishead and it's environs. The balance with regard new houses, is about right.

I don't believe the town can sustain any further significant expansion with the current facilities. I

Development of nailsea and backwell is important to help the town centres become more viable than they currently are.
