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

  • Comment ID: 2627617/CSCD/8
  • Status: Accepted
The Consultation Draft highlights the need to bring employment to North Somerset. Why is this not the first objective ahead of housing?

  • Comment ID: 2627617/CSCD/4

Locking has been identified as a service village and the Consulation Draft states that "New employment development must be located within or adjacent to the settlement boundaries and be of an appropriate scale and character and contribute towards improved self-containment." We have concerns regarding the proposed proximity of new employment to existing homes and the impact of this on a well established and thriving village community - both sides of the A371.

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?

The Consulation Draft states that new housing provision at Weston urban extension must be employment led. This has already been overridden at Locking Parklands and there are indications that housing will come before jobs on the new Persimmon Airfield development. An employment-led strategy is supported, but it must be followed through.

Priority Objective 7 states "Continue to support North Somerset's Green Belt in order to prevent the sprawl of Bristol and its encroachment into valued countryside and to preserve the character of existing settlements; elsewhere, valued strategic green gaps between settlements and characteristic green spaces and areas will be protected." This objective has already been pushed aside in the case of Locking Parklands.

Core Strategy - Consultation Draft Chapter 4: Area Policies CS30: Weston Urban Extension Key Diagram Weston Urban Extension

  • Comment ID: 2627617/CSCD/5

CS30 Inset 1 Key Diagram Urban Extension - This shows significant green space between developments in various areas. However, this Diagram is meaningless because planning approval for Locking Parklands has overriden this diagram and the open space between the existing settlement and Phase 1 development has been squeezed. This devalues the viability of the entire Diagram and brings into question the validity of the entire Consultation Draft.

In this section there is reference to amendments to settlement boundaries to be undertaken through the Site Allocations DPD. Why is this referred to in the Core Strategy when it is being discussed via another forum?

This section relates to a "9,000 home urban extension and the creation of over 10,000 jobs". Whilst it says 'over' 10,000 jobs, the split doesn't correlate with the 1.5 jobs per household quoted by GVA Grimley. Please clarify.

This section states that "Weston-super-Mare will accommodate 12,000 new dwellings and about 10,000 jobs.....". The introduction to the Consultation Draft states the housing requirement as 3,000 Weston urban, 5,750 elsewhere, 9000 Urban extension = 17,750. The figures do not match up. Please clarify.
