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

  • Comment ID: 3331265/CSCD/7
  • Status: Accepted
P1: should accord with emerging RSS and thus provision of 26,750 new homes by 2026 should be specified. P4: should recognise the beneficial impact of development at Bristol SUE incorporating similar objectives to those identified in respect of WsM. P5:Insufficient homes will be available within SW Bristol SUE to support vital businesses. P7:This approach fails to accord with emerging RSS and runs entirely counter to the consultation the NSC have commenced in respect of Green Belt Review.

Core Strategy - Consultation Draft Chapter 1: Introduction Evidence Base

  • Comment ID: 3331265/CSCD/3
  • Status: Accepted
The Core Strategy must be underpinned by a robust evidence base that is constantly reviewed to inform decision and plan making. The policies and proposals must therefore be both informed by and assessed against relevant available evidence. This affirms the point that NSC has elected to disregard part of the evidence that is critical to the successful delivery of emerging RSS.

Core Strategy - Consultation Draft Chapter 1: Introduction Sustainability Appraisal

  • Comment ID: 3331265/CSCD/4
  • Status: Accepted
As part of the Strategic Environmental Assessment (which would include a Sustainability Appraisal) NSC must consider the impacts for alternative developments and the cumulative impacts in respect of the same. It must therefore consider the impacts of substantial under delivery of open market and affordable housing and the consequential lost opportunities to deliver essential community infrastructure for which there is a pressing need.

Core Strategy - Consultation Draft Chapter 1: Introduction Characteristics of North Somerset

  • Comment ID: 3331265/CSCD/5
  • Status: Accepted
The policies set out within RPG 10 and emerging RSS respond to this historic problem of out commuting in two main ways. A spatial approach to policy formulation calls for SUE in order that development is therefore placed closer to Bristol SSCT than has historically occurred in NS.

Core Strategy - Consultation Draft Chapter 3: Spatial Policies Delivering Strong and Inclusive Communities CS16: Affordable Housing CS16: Affordable Housing

  • Comment ID: 3331265/CSCD/8
  • Status: Accepted
NSC approach of none delivery of Bristol SW SUE would result in the loss of 3,675 affordable houses within the plan period. This policy is unsustainable and damaging to the social well being those people who are in greatest need of such housing. Whilst the political will of NSC may wish to retain Green Belt it must give greater weight to properly meeting the needs of its wider community.

Core Strategy - Consultation Draft Chapter 2: Visions and Objectives VIS 1: North Somerset Vision

  • Comment ID: 3331265/CSCD/6
  • Status: Accepted
The Vision policies should include reference to Bristol SW SUE and should set out the principles to guide the timely delivery of this SUE.

Core Strategy - Consultation Draft Chapter 1: Introduction Relationship to the Regional Spatial Strategy

  • Comment ID: 3331265/CSCD/2
  • Status: Accepted
The approach taken within the Core Strategy with regard to the Bristol South West Urban Extension is to not proceed with the formulation of a policy framework to ensure timely delivery of the SUE to the South West Bristol. This approach purposefully conflicts with emerging RSS that has reached an extremely advanced stage of preparation. The Core Strategy cannot achieve conformity with RSS in this regard and therefore would be unsound.
