Core Strategy - Consultation Draft Chapter 3: Spatial Policies Living Within Environmental Limits CS5: Landscape and Historic Environment CS5: Landscape and Historic Environment

There should only be a presumption against development on landscape grounds using national criteria such as National Parks, AONB, Maritime Parks, etc. Existing local definitions should not be taken into account when considering the suitability of sites for development.

The linkage of new housing development to employment and vice versa is to be welcomed as this should, in theory, lead to greater self containment and reduce out commuting.

No justification is provided anywhere for the removal of the South West Bristol Urban Extension, even if there was a reasoned and sound justification for that removal it would still mean that the Council would have to find a further 9,000 plots, plus associated employment land elsewhere within their District.

Retail and other facilities are essential for improving self containment. Town centres, particularly Weston, should be improved/expanded but provision of space on the edge of urban areas can make them more attractive. Only by making every centre attractive will car use be reduced. In service villages, small scale, but modern, convenience stores whilst possibly causing closure of village shops will in the long run reduce travel. In preparing CS daughter documents, NSC should bear this in mind.

As a set of principles for guiding spatial planning and development control the principles set out in this policy are to be welcomed.

  • Comment ID: 1010241/CSCD/7
  • Status: Accepted
To state that the boundaries of the Bristol Bath Green Belt will "remain unchanged during the plan period" is a simply unsustainable policy. A sound strategy which is intended to deal with development in North Somerset until 2026 should define the circumstances in which land in Green Belt will be released through appropriate local reviews and LDDs.

  • Status: Accepted
To boldly state that "further expansion of the Port within North Somerset is not supported" is unsound. It may be that sufficient land is currently allocated for the Port; however maritime transport and associated facilities are an important and growing part of the UK economy. The Council should state that "no further development will be supported until there is a demonstrable need".

The general thrust that proposals for development in Clevedon, Nailsea and Portishead will be supported which increase self containment, ensure the availability of jobs and services and improves the town role as a service centre is to be welcomed, however this is in conflict and therefore unsound when considered against Policy CS6 and the final paragraph of Policy CS14.

The principles of development set out here are to be encouraged. Development at Weston Super Mare, Clevedon, Portishead, Nailsea and some of the larger service villages may be required in order to provide private sector funding through planning contributions to meet these objectives. When considering the spatial aspect of the Core Strategy your Council should have full regard to the way in which existing public transport services can be enhanced.

The provision of facilities for young people, not just schools but also youth clubs etc, in tandem with the delivery of new housing and employment opportunities is to be welcomed.
