Going out of town to shop used to be a day out, now it is a more regular part of people's lives. Can we look at outlets to stop the out of area shopping to help us become more sustainable. We are better placed than Clarks Village for access to Motorway for retail/factory outlet. If we can attract people from other areas we could also provide more to do for visitors staying longer than a day (or day trippers in bad weather?

Locking Parklands will need to include appropriate retail development. St Modwen notes that new retail proposals have to demonstrate that criteria are met, however, these criteria need to be brought in line with new guidance in PPS4, which removes the requirement to demonstrate 'need'. We reserve the opportunity to make further comments when the Weston Regeneration SPD is published.

Support identification of Nailsea as a 'Market Town' and also the strategy to improve mix of town centre uses in each centre and to protect their vitality and viability. PPS6 has now been replaced by PPS4. Recommend that a new Retail and Leisure Study should be prepared to update the 2006 study by Donaldsons.

The 2006 Donaldsons study contained errors. Portishead residents were shown as more likely to do their main food shopping in the town, than their top-up shopping. This is inconsistent with generally accepted convenience shopping patterns. The report is likely to have significantly under-estimated Portishead's market share at that time and is considered to be out of date, with the initial research being 5 years old and much development having taken place since.

We note that out-of-centres retail development, such as that our client proposes in Portishead, will be assessed under Policy CS21, which identifies the requirement to demonstrate that: there is a quantitative and qualitative need for the development; the uses could not be located within or on the edge of an existing centre; they would have no adverse impact on the vitality and viability of these centres. This policy is not fully consistent with the recently published guidance in PPS4.

We would recommend the following changes to the core strategy: the background retail and leisure study be updated at the earliest opportunity and errors acknowledged; Policy CS21 be updated to reflect PPS4; terminology in respect of new centres forming part of the urban extensions should be clarified to reflect the definitions set out in Annex B of PPS4.

The Parish Council supports the statement that the council will resist the loss of small-scale shops including neighbourhood and village stores, and eating and drinking establishments that support the needs of local communities and support self containment. This can only be achieved via the setting of an upper limit to the size of development for "local centres" like Congresbury. Additional retailers will be welcomed as long as they are not to the detriment of existing shops/businesses.

No new housing on the High Street. Encouraging this area to be `pedestrian only`. Shops, particularly in the High Street, should be numbered.

Strong support for the policy to 'resist the loss of small scale shops including neighbourhood and village stores...'. It is important to set an upper limit for scale of development in service villages, so no new development has the effect of reducing the range of local shops and facilities.

Suggested Amendment: Need for policy to reflect 'sequential' and 'impact' tests set down in PPS4.
