If someone asks how your marriage is and you say "it's sustainable" how does that compare with saying "it's revitalising"? We need to be talking about sustainable development in a way which everyone understands means "give back more than you take" or "leaving things better than we found it". When you read about SD "balancing economic, social and environmental" people usually understand this to mean one is at the expense of the other. It gives developers a way out to say, listen let's balance t

The local plan is fundamentally flawed throughout as it only focuses on housing needs and employment requirements. It fails to actually consider transport corridors to, and from these developments. and just touches upon enhanced public transport. There is no mention of other transportation particularly, private motor vehicles and goods transport vehicles. The Local Plan states that it is to provide a positive vision for the future of North Somerset and a mechanism through which local communitie

* Vision, Strategic Priorities and Sustainability Objectives Chapter two of the consultation document outlines the vision for the new Local Plan.

BAL is broadly supportive of the proposed Local Plan vision and strategic priorities. However, we consider that the vision could be more ambitious in terms of its aspirations for the economy of North Somerset by providing express support for existing businesses in the plan area and recognising the unique and important role that international gateways such as Bristol Airport can play in securing the future economic and social success of North Somerset and the wider region. This could be achieved

* We are broadly supportive of the vision and strategic priorities identified in the POC. However, in terms of the strategic priorities it identifies the ambition to "deliver a diverse range of housing in a variety of tenures, sizes and forms, particularly genuine affordable housing, to meet future needs of North Somerset residents at locations where they are most needed." * Whilst we appreciate that housing and development are politically sensitive issues, the council cannot ignore the functio
