Core Strategy-Examination into consequential changes of remaining remitted policies Proposed main modifications Policy CS28, Modification CC-MM04

  • Comment ID: 1020673//4
All new development should be in-accordance with the National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF), specifically relevant for the Agency would be any development within flood plain. This should include evidence of Sequential Test acceptability, as well as an appropriate Flood Risk Assessment which addresses all flood concerns.

The requirement for main modifications to the Other Remitted Policies has arisen principally from concerns raised by the Inspector at the Examination regarding the deliverability of the overall housing requirement, and in particular the potential constraints at Weston-super-Mare which is to contribute substantially to delivering the district's overall requirement. In consequence, in order to find the plan sound, the Inspector indicated that main modifications were required to introduce greater f

There is no mention of drainage or flood risk matters within the bulleted list of desirable criteria. We would wish to ensure that all development proposals are accompanied by a suitable flood risk assessment which demonstrates that the impact of the development has at least a neutral impact on flood risk and drainage at a local and a catchment scale.

Revised Policy CS28 states that housing sites outside the settlement boundary "in excess of about 75 dwellings" must be brought forward as site allocations in the Local Plan or neighbourhood planning process. The requirement for new residential schemes in excess of "about 75 dwellings" is too prescriptive. It is considered that schemes should be judged on the merits of their sustainability in line with the provisions of the NPPF. My client's site at Lyefield Road is directly adjacent to the dev

CS28 (Weston-super-Mare) It is not clear why the Council is specifically referring to development east of the M5. This wording is ambiguous and not necessary. The requirement as proposed by CS14 which states that 'Development outside the settlement boundaries will only be acceptable where a site is allocated in a Local Plan or where it comprises sustainable development.' will be an effective policy tool to resist inappropriate development. Logically the settlement boundary for Weston-super-Mar

PHSV support the proposed modification to the second paragraph to the policy and in particular the replacement of 'balanced with' with 'together with' and 'around 10,914 additional new dwellings' with 'a minimum of 12,600 dwellings.' PHSV support new paragraph 6 which introduces more flexibility in relation to the seventh bullet point, by referring to objectives which should be taken in to account. There is a significant change to the supporting paragraphs under the heading 'How and Where the

According to the most up-to-date SHLAA evidence and annual monitoring report, the number of completions in Weston-super-Mare (excluding the Weston Villages) is 2,895 dwellings (April 2016). When considering the SHLAA, the estimated capacity is 2,973 dwellings (although by our calculations this actually resulted in 2,962 dwellings); given the overall identified requirement for WSM is 6,300 dwellings, this results in 432 dwellings needing to come forward via the permissive policy. With the current

We are pleased to see it stated that 'no strategic development will be permitted to the east of the M5', although it would be better to use the motorway as a more distinct limit and state 'no development will be permitted east of the M5, irrespective of any other policies'. Similarly, and bearing in mind the number of new dwellings and development proposed for Weston, it is suggested that it is unnecessary to include any provision here for new housing development outside the settlement boundary

We support the ambitions for growth in Weston-super-Mare. There are opportunities to reuse previously developed land and efforts should be made to encourage these sites to come forward. CPRE publication 'From wasted space to living spaces' explains our approach to brownfield land We DO NOT support new development proposals at Weston-super-Mare adjoining the settlement boundary and are particularly concerned about the lack of definition in the wording 'Housing sites outside the settlement bounda
