In light of the representations made under policies CS13, CS14 and CS20, the policy should be amended to permit an increased level of both housing and employment development than the very limited extent currently envisaged under the proposed policy. A more positive approach to facilitating such development should be incorporated in the wording.

The general requirements for residential development to achieve the Building for Life Gold standard is considered to be unreasonable unless it is subject to consideration of the broader viability of such development.

  • Status: Accepted
The strictly limited scope for residential development is not appropriate for those settlements currently with a settlement boundary (see other representations under policy CS14 requiring these to be retained). Reference to employment development should now be reviewed and replaced by wording in accordance with PPS4, particularly policies EC6 and EC10. Need reference to conversions. Presumtion against employment development in the open countryside should be removed (contrary to PPS4).

Greater flexibility needs to be incorporated within the wording of the policy. "should, subject to viability considerations..." would at least give a degree of flexibility that is necessary to such considerations.The requirements in items 2, 3 & 4 under this policy are demanding particularly in the light of the present economic circumstances. Viability is the key consideration if the scale of both economic and residential development required for this District is to be achieved.

The removal of 9,000 dwelling urban extension at south west Bristol is not adequately justified. The approach adopted of not providing for this shortfall throughout the rest of the district is unviable. The viability of Clevedon, Nailsea and Portishead and the service villages is completely disregarded, leaving them to stagnate, unable to maintain the level of services needed.

The policy should not contain the urban extension areas. Service villages and small settlements should be allowed a greater amount of development in accordance with the RSS and to mitigate for shortfalls elsewhere. The net density target of 40dph is supported. Settlement boundaries should be amended to allow for additional development and should not be deleted.

Health Impact Assessments should not be required as part of the planning application stage, adding to the already significant front-end loading (and costs) of information sought by local planning authorities. There should also be a clear definition as to what these will comprise. The requirement in point 2) of the proposed policy must be subject to the viability considerations of the proposed development.
