We note that there are unfilled premises for business development in Backwell and see no need for further development here unless people can be persuaded not to commute.

Policy SP9 focuses upon the provision of new employment land, around 70ha in North Somerset. This is, in part, to "… meet the needs and aspirations across a range of economic sectors, to contribute to sustainable patterns of development and commuting, and to provide a range of local employment opportunities.". Further it states that, "The towns (and Yanley Lane strategic location) will be the main focus for employment growth given their accessibility, labour markets and range of services and fa

Policy SP9 Employment St Modwen and Homes England welcome the move away from the previous Local Plan requirement of 1.5 jobs per home within Weston-super-Mare. The evidence to date from building out the Weston Villages development has demonstrated that this is a very challenging proposition and is likely to hinder the Council's ability to meet it's housing requirement and maintain a five year housing land supply going forward (further reiterated by the Moor Road, Yatton appeal decision issued 27

Are sufficient sites for employment been identified to meet business needs and are they in the right locations? Supporting text to draft Policy SP9 states "In line with the overarching spatial strategy, provision is made for business development at or well-related to the urban areas including the main towns of Weston-super-Mare, Nailsea, Portishead, and Clevedon, and the strategic location at Yanley Lane (Woodspring golf course)…". We consider the above proposition to be the appropriate strate

Policy SP9: Employment 3.45 This draft policy seeks to make provision for employment land in order to facilitate growth across a range of sectors and support sustainable patterns of growth across North Somerset. 3.46 We note the draft policy allocates 10ha of employment land to be provided as part of the proposed Yanley Lane allocation. We comment on this matter in greater detail under Policy LP2 later within these representations, however, in summary, whilst we do not object to the Yanley Lane

Encouraging employment at sustainable locations – we support this. Such initiatives should have access to appropriate roads and should not be on good quality agricultural land.

Policy SP9 (Employment) * This draft policy sets out that 48 hectares of employment land will be delivered at Weston-super-Mare including Wolvershill (north of Banwell) over the plan period. Our site specific comments relating to how part of this quantum will be delivered at the Wolvershill (north of Banwell) site are covered in our response to the site specific policy (Policy LP1). However, in general we would support the Council's aspiration to ensure that new employment land is delivered in

As a small business owner, I support the initiatives to improve employment opportunity in the area and boost the local economy. However, there are an increasing number of businesses operating virtually with their employees choosing to work remotely and more flexibly. For some, this may mean working from home part time, for others it means working in a coworking or hot-desking situation. I would like to see some initiatives that support these kinds of hybrid or fully virtual businesses, perhaps w

Prevent the removal of light industrial units in Portishead (Mill Road proposal). Although must admit this would be an ideal area to build apartments. How are 20,000 jobs going to be created?

Draft Policy SP9 – Employment HLM has commented on the overall proposed employment provision of 70 hectares under Policy SP3. Policy SP9 presents further detail relating to the areas of supply which reveals some 40 ha of employment land is to be rolled forward from existing allocations in the Core Strategy, and a further 30ha of land is to be identified at strategic growth areas. HLM strongly question the appropriateness of this strategy insofar as meeting employment needs; retaining employers i
