Due to provision of primary school places elsewhere it is understood that a new Primary School at Kewstoke is unlikely to be required. Whilst the allocation has been carried over from the Replacement Local Plan there is no evidence that a primary school is required in this location. Whilst the identification of the site for development is welcomed the land should be considered for alternative uses.  As the revised housing requirement for NSC is likely to result in the need for existing settlements to accommodate further housing growth the site should be considered for a small scale housing development which could provide local market and affordable housing, deliver appropriate community facilities to serve Kewstoke and contribute towards primary school provision in existing education facilities nearby.
