  • Comment ID: 29308449//4
* I supports the policy approach established through Policy SP10 in respect of the hierarchy of transport schemes which will be considered to support new developments. We support the recognition that new roads are appropriate where such proposals support active travel and public transport, benefits community connectivity, public realm or provides safety improvements or is required to support economic development. * However, the primary objective of this Local Plan's spatial strategy should be to

1. Public transport should be conducted by electric, hydrogen and future technology vehicles. Hydrogen is a more suited power source for many buses and also for certain routes. As an interim current diesel vehicles need to be converted to run on a less strategic and less polluting fuel. 2. The Local Plan must define certain protected depots for community transport. 3. Driverless buses should be considered on certain routes. 4. Care must be taken to ensure passengers willingly use the buses an

I strongly support the development of better walking and cycling route provision. I support better public transport provision. I am highly sceptical that the challenges of EV transport have been properly understood or considered. This would appear to be a massive missed opportunity, if there is a serious desire for EV transport to happen at any kind of scale. Additional power generation and supply would need to be considered, as well as a network of charging points. One important consideration

* "New development being located and designed to minimise the carbon impact of transport through limiting the need to travel and prioritising walking and cycling (active travel) and the use of public transport." * Support for the admirable aspirations. I do not support building new roads in the countryside.

This seems to be rather ambitious. At the moment, car ownership still is the norm and commercial traffic is also carried out by road. The network along the A38 corridor is already running to capacity and the LP2 development will put further pressure on it.

Proposed Policy SP10 seeks to limit the need to travel by directing new development to sustainable locations and through the prioritisation of active travel opportunities and use of public transport. The proposed allocation of Land West of Kenn Road is entirely consistent with draft Policy SP10. Whilst we support the thrust of Policy SP10, we consider that it is important for the emerging transport policy to be consistent with emerging Policy SP8 which seeks to direct over 1,500 dwellings to vi

  • Comment ID: 31975457//8
This draft policy as worded is unclear and imprecise. Clearly it is the limiting of unsustainable modes of transport that are of particular importance as opposed to '… limiting the need to travel…'. The Policy continues referencing that in facilitating net zero emissions, development proposals must address "… the following principles in line with the following hierarchy: …". Whilst the principles stated appear generally reasonable, the use of public transport is such that it must, there is no s

This site strongly accords with the aims of draft Policy SP10, owing to its highly sustainable location in close proximity to Backwell and Nailsea train station, bus routes, and the Festival Way Sustrans cyclepath in addition to excellent road networks for the private car. Notwithstanding this, whilst we support the general aspiration of this draft policy, we consider it important to ensure consistency with draft policy SP8 which seeks to direct over 1,500 dwellings to villages and rural areas t

Adequate parking for motor vehicles and cycles must be provided and managed to meet the needs of anticipated users (residents, workers and visitors) in usable spaces. - we should not require car parks, as they are ugly and promote driving motor vehicles. If we want to efficiently use space then car parks are a terrible misuse and go against all the other aims. There could be a couple of disabled and electirc vehicle spaces where absolutely necessary, but unless we start taking bold action why an

SP10 Transport – object As drafted Policy SP10 will place an unacceptable barrier to development in some areas of North Somerset which are otherwise suitable for development and could result in development proposals outside of the main towns being unreasonably resisted. Smaller developments in village locations may not be able to fully meet the requirements of the policy as this may place unrealistic financial demands on the viability of the scheme. Policy SP8 should be amended as follows: "N
