Core Strategy-Examination into consequential changes of remaining remitted policies Proposed main modifications Policy CS31, Modification CC-MM06

  • Comment ID: 1020673//6
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 change in policy wording to allow for housing development 'at' the towns rather than expressly 'within' the settlement boundaries, is welcomed. However, for reasons set out in response to CC-MM02 above, the requirement for new housing development to 'adjoin' settlement boundaries is too inflexible. The alternative wording suggested in response to CC-MM06 above is preferred. The reference to 'appropriate scale' provides insufficient clarity. The 'appropriateness' of scale must relate to the

Linden Homes have interests in land at North West Nailsea which is proposed for allocation for residential development in the draft North Somerset Site Allocations Plan (March 2016). New housing development is supported in these towns and in particular at Nailsea. We agree that focussing development at the main towns, including Nailsea, maximises economic opportunities. The policy includes a split of housing across the three towns. It is assumed this split has been informed by the draft site a

We support proposals for development in these locations for 'new housing development WITHIN settlement boundaries…………' and oppose any development adjoining settlement boundaries that have not been subject to the full planning policy consultation process. Our more detailed concerns about proposed development policy for land 'abutting' or 'adjoining' are expressed in our comments for Policy CS32 and our views are the same irrespective of where they are across North Somerset Para beginning 'Resid

PHSV support the proposed modifications to Policy CS31 other than the restriction in paragraph 4 of the modified policy to the proposals in excess 50 dwellings having to be brought forward through Local Plans or Neighbourhood Development Plans. The reasons stated for this in the amended supporting paragraphs is that 'developments of more than 50 dwellings have wider infrastructure and environmental impacts which need to be properly considered through a Development Plan. However: * There is no e

We note it is recognised that flood constraints limit the opportunity to develop adjacent to these areas. We would wish the wording of the Policy to be modified to highlight this issue as follows. * Residential development within the settlement boundaries of the three towns and adjacent areas will be acceptable in principal provided it reflects the character of the local environment and does not cause any adverse impacts.In particular Flood risk and drainage must be considered at a local and ca

  • Comment ID: 11199745//3
Gladman object to the Proposed Main Modification to Policy CS31 as the Council are seeking to impose an arbitrary limit of about 50 dwellings on residential proposals outside of the boundaries of these settlements. As stated above, the Framework is clear that development which is sustainable should go ahead without delay. The assessment of whether a proposal is deemed to be sustainable should be based on the consideration of a wide range of factors across all three strands of sustainability (ec

  • Comment ID: 706241//2
Nailsea Town Council is concerned that the planning authority has not developed a plan which assesses the cumulative impact of new development on existing infrastructure. Such a plan would identify action required to mitigate impacts and would inform decisions about the use of S106 and CIL funds. The consequence of a lack of an integrated plan is that development will be piecemeal, and opportunities will be missed to address predictable impacts in a coherent manner.

At Para 4 I suggest that stating " residential proposals outside the settlement boundary in excess of about 50 dwellings must "should be restated, giving a definite figure, for example '50' , in the interests of certainty and to avoid challenge by developers.
