We must ensure the delivery of better local bus and rail services. These services need to be extended and more economically viable to provide residents with an alternative to the car. There is a danger that if we cannot make public transport more attractive the policy will not be able to deliver.

We must ensure that a minimum parking allocation is applied to new developments. Ideally properties should be designed with the garage next to the property they are serving and should be of a sufficient size. The new roads are also not wide enough for on street parking - creating issues for emergency vehicles, buses etc.

We must ensure that the employment led approach is adhered to! 'No jobs- no houses'. Re designing out crime- alleyways should not be included in development design. More space is needed between properties with wider roads so that people do not feel so closed in.

The very large extension proposed for WSM on 'sustainability' grounds relies on the provision of 10000 jobs, a robust public transport system, the development of many new communities, challenging planning to provide the correct number of school places with financial pressures- wouldn't it be more sustainable to grow smaller communities which could absorb the growth whilst maintaining an existing community?

We must ensure that the mix of properties is correct and that when we recommend a mix of 1,2,3 and 4 bed homes this is delivered, rather than a majority of one beds with a few 2 and 3 beds. We need to make the mix requirement clearer so that family properties are developed as well as properties for one. Perhaps specific percentages could be introduced to deliver the mix we need?

Given the existing pressures on the town we need assurances that 'employment led' growth really will mean that there must be job opportunities provided for development applications to be supported. Please also clarify what is meant by if employment opportunities are not appropriate, off-site contributions must be provided.

To assist residents, new developments must incorporate space to allow for recycling- the policy makes reference to this and this is welcomed. Ideally, flats should provide space internally ( eg in communal space) as well as in the outside space.
