Site Allocations Plan March 2016 Introduction Purpose of the document

  • Comment ID: 1017697//1
The Council should have regard to the emerging Joint Spatial Plan which is being prepared in conjunction with Bath and North East Somerset, Bristol City and South Gloucestershire Councils. The 2015 Strategic Housing Market Assessment (SHMA) covering the four authorities identified a need to deliver 85,000 homes between 2016 and 2036. This equates to 4,250 homes every year and is nearly 30,000 more than originally planned for across the region.

Site Allocations Plan March 2016 Schedule 1: Proposed large sites for residential development over 10 dwellings (Sites marked with a * are mixed use sites). Weston-super-Mare Birnbeck Pier*

Whilst we support the policy allocation for a mixed-use development, , it is neither appropriate nor possible for the Council to identify a realistic capacity figure at this stage We, therefore, recommend that the Council retains the allocation but removes reference to a residential capacity figure. It would be appropriate, instead for the Council to provide additional wording suggesting that the overall quantum of development will be informed by a detailed analysis of the area.
