The Core Strategy is potentially unsound because NSC has not approved the preferred strategic drainage/flood risk options for the Uphill and Banwell catchment or provided a credible alternative drainage solution to enable the Weston Urban Extension to proceed.

Point 12 - NSC is advised to remove this para, as it confuses point 11. The idea is to achieve point 11 so that we can avoid interim and long term on site drainage solutions in addition to the super pond. We would support on site SUDS for water quality purposes through green roofs, swales, filter drainage etc where feasible.

Point 14 - It is acknowledged that NSC is creating a Supplementary Planning Document (SPD) to establish how money will be accrued for strategic infrastructure. Approval of a detailed scheme will inform the tariff methodology, calculation and adoption process.

Paras 4.64-4.65 - This suggests the sequential test has been passed for the urban extension. Is this correct? If so NSC detailed studies, i.e. Level 2 SFRA, need to clearly steer development within the lower flood risks inside Flood Zone 2 and 3. This is called the sequential approach. We are working with NSC on the flood risk evidence to ensure it influences the layout of the urban extension, and informs the strategic solution requirements and site specific FRA's.

Weston Super Mare - Urban Extension - Limited capacity exists in local networks for a development of this scale. - Drainage strategy for this land to be agreed with Wessex Water at an early stage in the planning process.

The principle of the Urban Extension is not at issue We note that the proposal for this development includes the provision of open space based on the Motte and Bailey Castle - a scheduled monument.We would wish to ensure that it is not just the monument itself but a larger historic landscape around it that also contributes towards its significance that is preserved.

Under "Alternative options and contingency planning", the plan states the option of developing land immediately to the east of M5 to support J21 improvements and encourage employment. This is totally unacceptable. It would lead to urban development towards Banwell, Winscombe and surrounding villages. The M5 acts as a natural barrier to such development.

Principle of this proposal is not an issue. We wish to understand more of the SAM's setting and ensure a larger historic landscape than the monument itself is preserved. Could also include the adjacent listed farmhouse. Energy centre could have tall chimneys that may dominate the surrounding area. Impact analysis will need to occur through master planning so that full impact of such structures on the historic environment can be understood, and appropriate mitigation put in place.

Weston urban extension - the ratio of jobs to homes needs to be significantly higher, and the policy needs to be redrafted so that it does not provide developers with an easy and immediate means of avoiding the requirement for development to be employment led on the grounds of viability. If the development is not viable because of the need to make employment provision and for jobs to actually arise, the development should not proceed rather than there being an easy default to housing.

Reference is made in this section to the provision of a permanent travellers site. Why has this not been identified on any of the diagrams in the Consulation Draft? When will the site(s) be made public?
