Ob 1 - The Core Strategy does not apply an appropriate contingency to address this shortfall in provision in the event that the higher RSS figure is taken forward. Ob 2 - The text refers to transport infrastructure, which suggests that the LPA may not consider utilities to be 'physical infrastructure'. If this is the case, a separate comment should be added to the list of objectives to address this matter. Ob 7 - This should recognise that some development in the Green Belt will be required.

Brockley Parish Council broadly supports the Priority Objectives and Policies set out in the Draft Core Strategy document, with reservations about policies relating to BIA and the Green Belt.

There is a need for a new over-arching priority on mitigating climate change and addressing the issue of peak oil.North Somerset Council must devote time and resources to this issue to ensure that the highest standards of development are met as soon as possible. The Core Strategy is an opportunity to create a set of best-practice planning policies on low-carbon development and also to transform the way that people live and work in existing settlements.

Welcome Objective 5 but need to cross reference to Objective 7 regarding Green Belt and strategic gaps regarding the longer term future of the Green Belt here.

FOSBR (Friends of Suburban Bristol Railways) is dismayed that none of the priority objectives makes any mention of improvements to North Somerset's rail infrastructure. FOSBR urges that such improvements, in particular the restoration of passenger services on the Portishead line, should be included as priority objectives. This would contribute to carbon reduction and a greener environment.

Priority Objective 7 states "Continue to support North Somerset's Green Belt in order to prevent the sprawl of Bristol and its encroachment into valued countryside and to preserve the character of existing settlements; elsewhere, valued strategic green gaps between settlements and characteristic green spaces and areas will be protected." This objective has already been pushed aside in the case of Locking Parklands.

Priority Objective 2 should be amended to read: "Ensure that major development proposals are delivered in tandem with the necessary improvements in physical and social infrastructure such as THE PROVISION OF NEW HEALTHCARE SERVICES, M5 junction 21 improvements at Weston-super-Mare, Junction 19 improvements at Portishead and access improvements to Bristol International Airport, and that appropriate delivery mechanisms including effective tariffs/developer contributions are in place.

Priority Objective 5 should be rephrased to refer to the support and promotion of existing or present employment security and economic prosperity, rather than referring to future economic growth. Further expansion should not be allowed until NSC has monitored and shown clear benefits to the area, including a substantial rise in inward tourism and regeneration to South Bristol and parts of the deprived areas of Weston-super-Mare.

Any objectives should be in line with the emerging South West RSS. Priority Objective 1 not in accordance with the emerging RSS given that it only seeks to deliver 17,750 dwellings by 2026.The Core Strategy fails to apply a contingency to address this shortfall in provision in the event that the RSS is taken forward by the Government. Priority Objective 8 seeks to 'redress the substantial inequalities between the most deprived and prosperous areas of North Somerset'.
