Core Strategy - Consultation Draft Chapter 2: Visions and Objectives Priority Objectives

  • Comment ID: 1019201/CSCD/1
  • Status: Accepted
We are concerned that some priority objectives should be adopted as policy when no information is provided on the background details, in particular the infrastructure schemes and generalised reference to airport access improvements referred to in objective 1 and the unspecified major transport schemes in objective 9. We have concerns about the prospect of a declared priority objective to support apparent economic prosperity at Bristol International Airport (BIA).

The Council notes that the emphasis here is on new facilities and services, with a focus on Weston. Although this is understandable in the context of Weston and the scale of the proposed long-term residential development, the needs of village and other schools elsewhere must not be overlooked, where significant expenditure for modernisation will probably be required in some cases and must be accounted for in long-term planning.

There is an inconsistency between this policy wording and that in policy CS17, Residential Sites Providing Affordable Housing Only. The latter states that affordable housing-only developments will not be permitted in the Green Belt; there is no equivalent statement here, although policy CS17 is referred to in para 4.107. We recommend that all existing settlement boundaries are retained.

  • Comment ID: 1019201/CSCD/19
  • Status: Accepted
It does appear irrational that proposals for residential caravans occupied by Gypsies or Travellers or as a permanent base for Travelling Showpeople could be permitted in the Green Belt, but not affordable housing for the settled population. Amend policy wording to read '... will not be permitted in the Green Belt and elsewhere in very special circumstances only. Preference will be given ...'. This would produce a policy which fits better with other related Core Strategy policies.

  • Status: Accepted
The Council positively supports NSC's aim to work with health providers to help provide health facilities in towns and service villages. This initiative should be extended to provide protection for existing health services. It is recommended that the second sentence in CS26, para 2 is amended to read: 'Existing health services will be protected and maintained and where provision of services is insufficient to support an increased population ....'

Core Strategy - Consultation Draft Chapter 6: Delivery CS34: Developer Contributions to Infrastructure

  • Comment ID: 1019201/CSCD/35
  • Status: Accepted
While this policy is supported, the Council would like to see a more formal role for local councils in the process under which developer contributions are considered. This would reflect the value of the councils' role in social and community infrastructure issues. It would also be more sympathetic to the aims and aspirations of the Sustainable Community Strategy.
