Core Strategy - Consultation Draft Chapter 3: Spatial Policies Living Within Environmental Limits CS1: Addessing Climate Change and Carbon Reduction CS1: Addessing Climate Change and Carbon Reduction

In respect of point 2) the words "delivered early in the development" should be deleted as this will be an unrealistic proposition in many instances due to viability considerations. In respect of point 8) there should be greater flexibility than is implied by simply prioritising previously developed land in this way. For instance, an element of greenfield development may actually be a more sustainable and resource efficient option for the phasing of development and thereby enhance viability.

  • Comment ID: 3371105/CSCD/7
  • Status: Accepted
The scale of new housing for the District should identify land for meeting the RSS requirement of 26,750 additional units. There is no justification for the deletion of 9,000 dwellings attributable to the South West Bristol Urban Extension. Irrespective of the Council's political position in respect of the SWBUE there is no reasoned justification with regard to the planning considerations to be applied that support any reduction in the total number of dwellings to be provided in the District.

This policy should be reviewed to take on the new advice and policy guidance set out in PPS4 recently published, in particular policy EC7 therein relating to the planning of tourism in rural areas. It should be made clear that tourism and appropriate leisure uses will not be precluded from any areas the subject of proposals in policy CS19.

1. In light of the representations made under policies CS13, CS14 and CS20, the policy should be amended to permit an increased level of both housing and employment development than the very limited extent currently envisaged under the proposed policy. A more positive approach to facilitating such development should be incorporated in the wording.

Greater flexibility needs to be incorporated within the wording of the policy. The requirements in items 2, 3 & 4 under this policy are demanding particularly in the light of the present economic circumstances.

  • Comment ID: 3371105/CSCD/8
  • Status: Accepted
The policy should include and not exclude the urban extension areas proposed. It is difficult to reconcile the figures. The proposals relating to Clevedon/Nailsea/Portishead should permit a greater scale of residential development than that proposed. Equally, the scale of development proposed to be permitted in respect of the Service Villages and small settlements is very restricted. The target for net density of 40 dpha is supported.settlement boundaries will need to be amended accordingly.

The area of search to be the whole of North Somerset should be amended to say that with regard to the Service Villages it is the Service Village and its immediate environs and economic hinterland that is the relevant area of search. In respect of 2) any Council land so identified must have already been formally declared to be surplus and be genuinely available for purchase by private treaty.

Core Strategy - Consultation Draft Chapter 4: Area Policies CS33: Smaller Settlements and Countryside CS33: Smaller Settlements and Countryside

  • Comment ID: 3371105/CSCD/20
  • Status: Accepted
The strictly limited scope for residential development is not appropriate for those settlements currently with a settlement boundary. Reference to employment development should now be reviewed and replaced by wording in accordance with PPS4. The requirement that employment development will not be permitted in the open countryside should be deleted. It is not considered to accord with PPS4 and could be interpreted as deleting entirely the effect of policies RD/2 and RD/3 contained in the RLP.
