The Core Strategy and the Sustainable Community Strategy refer to the need to "incorporate important aspects of local distinctiveness and key local issues" (2.5). The visions are described as "aspirational, yet realistic and deliverable."

Without a proactive and 'managed' approach to residential development and reconsideration of the Green Belt boundaries the overarching strategic goals of the Core Strategy in relation to Nailsea are unachievable and therefore the aspirations will, in practice, be unrealistic and undeliverable. The real risk is that rather than Nailsea prospering during the period covered by the Core Strategy, it will in fact atrophy. Tackling the issues of Green Belt and housing would also ensure better adherence to the other important goals of the Core Strategy.
