Core Strategy-Examination into consequential changes of remaining remitted policies Proposed main modifications Policy CS32, Modification CC-MM07

  • Comment ID: 3322113//2
* 3rd & 5th bullet point both state that development will only take place where it will not cause significant adverse/cumulative impacts on services and infrastructure and the local infrastructure is sufficient to accommodate the demands of the development. In Yatton's experience the reality seems to be that it should include the addition of "unless the Council cannot meet five year supply".

The term "new development within or adjoining the settlement boundaries" could have the unintended consequence of constant redrawing of that boundary, and will allow urban sprawl, and so needs to be changed. "tenure and range of housing that is required" - should clarify that it should meet "the needs of North Somerset residents" - otherwise we could be sucked into providing mass housing estates to meet the needs of Bristol. Many retired residents would also like more small bungalows to downsiz

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.

While the factors highlighted in the policy statement bullet points have value and are supported it is unrealistic to think that a 25 dwelling development would not have some negative impacts in most village locations. In fact, it seems bizarre to suggest that a 25 dwelling development should be considered as 'small scale' ref para 4.87. It is implied that 'appropriate development up to 25 dwellings adjoining settlement boundaries' will be acceptable. While what might or might not be appropriat

"It will not cause significant adverse impacts on services and infrastructure"; "It does not result in significant adverse cumulative impacts"; and "The Council will not support proposals which either on their own or in aggregate cause significant adverse impacts on the character or functioning of the village": * "significant" should be removed. It is too subjective and imprecise and undermines the objective of trying to protect local communities as it will almost certainly be under-interpreted

HLM notes that in part the proposed modifications to the wording of Policy CS32, offer an increased degree of flexibility through the removal of a number of onerous policy obligations such as the reference to schemes having to be "supported by the local community" which is not necessarily consistent with the identification of the most sustainable development opportunities. Furthermore, the criteria against which development proposals must be judged, as proposed by the main mods are better align

CPRE supports residential development WITHIN settlement boundaries of service villages. The proposal for development adjoining settlement boundaries particularly at this stage of the Core Strategy is flawed as it does not allow for the normal planning policy processes to consider properly the potential environmental and social impacts and does not provide certainty for both communities and developers alike. The policy lacks clarity and is not transparent and will have the potential to set commun

We note that there is no change to this policy however we would wish for the policy to be amended to require that Flood risk and drainage must be considered at a local and catchment scale by the planning authority, and any proposed development will need to be supported by a flood risk assessment which reflects this approach within its proposed surface water drainage strategy.

Background NSCS Policy CS13 (Scale of New Housing) sets out the housing requirement for North Somerset and was amended and re-adopted in 2015 to reflect the final position at a minimum of 20,985 dwellings. Having established the housing requirement, the Council considered whether this resulted in further amendments to the policies remitted by the High Court and a round of consultation took place between November – December 2015. In response to that consultation, we submitted representations on

Halsall Homes feel that reference should be made in the policy text to Churchill / Langford, rather than solely Churchill. This would reflect the settlement boundary which extends over both groupings of built form. Halsall Homes support the principle of Policy CS32 seeking to accommodate opportunities for new development adjoining the settlement boundaries of the Service Villages. However, the concept of bringing forward new residential development in excess of 25 dwellings only through allocat
