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

  • Comment ID: 3399393/CSCD/1
  • Status: Accepted
Fundamentally we object to the Consultation Draft Core Strategy as it is not in broad conformity with the requirements of the Proposed Changes to the Regional Spatial Strategy (PCRSS).Yatton is considered to be a suitable, sustainable settlement for additional housing and employment growth due to the fact that it has a range of employment, leisure, retail and community facilities and in addition (unlike Portishead and Clevedon) has a high quality passenger railway service and station.

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

  • Comment ID: 3399393/CSCD/7
  • Status: Accepted
PROPOSED CHANGES: We propose that Policy CS16 should be amended by: - Providing a viability assessment considering whether it is viable to deliver 30% affordable homes on large sites across the district. - Identifying that the 30% benchmark is not the minimum requirement and that variances below this will be accepted subject to project viability and consideration of the overall S106 package relating to a proposed development.

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

  • Comment ID: 3399393/CSCD/13
  • Status: Accepted
We object to this Policy as there is no recognition of the significant costs that these other policies of the Plan notably Policy CS2 requirements will bring to developments which in addition with other contributions sought by this policy will render many housing, employment and other developments un-viable. This will completely undermine the delivery of the required housing, employment and other developments necessary to attain the requirements of the PCRSS and meet the needs of the District.

Core Strategy - Consultation Draft Chapter 3: Spatial Policies Living Within Environmental Limits CS2: Delivering Sustainable Design and Construction CS2: Delivering Sustainable Design and Construction

  • Comment ID: 3399393/CSCD/3
  • Status: Accepted
PROPOSED CHANGES The deletion of Policy CS2 and it's rewriting to provide policies in compliance with PPS1 and the PCRSS. These changes should ensure that the: - Renewable energy targets reflect the PCRSS requirement of 10% and are supported by viability assessments and an appropriate evidence base; - Code level requirements should be set to reflect national standards due to likely changes to the Code for Sustainable Homes system; - Life Time Home standards are deleted.

Core Strategy - Consultation Draft Chapter 3: Spatial Policies Delivering Strong and Inclusive Communities CS19: Green Wedges/Strategic Gaps CS19: Green Wedges/Strategic Gaps

  • Comment ID: 3399393/CSCD/8
  • Status: Accepted
We object to this policy as there is no basis for the designation of Green Wedges and Strategic Gaps within PPS1, PPS7 or the PCRSS. For these reasons we object to this policy and seek its deletion as it fails to meet test of soundness as it is not consistent with national planning policy or in general conformity with the Regional Spatial Strategy.

Core Strategy - Consultation Draft Chapter 4: Area Policies CS31: Market and Coastal Towns CS31: Market and Coastal Towns

  • Comment ID: 3399393/CSCD/11
  • Status: Accepted
We consider that Yatton complies with the criteria in policy B of the PCRSS. We propose that Yatton should be identified as a Market/Coastal Town. Yatton should be identified to provide: - up to 1,000 dwellings in the period 2010-2026 in order to meet the PCRSS requirement to deliver 5,750 dwellings within the remainder of the District. - up to 10 ha of employment land for B1, B2 and B8 uses in the period 2010-2026.

Core Strategy - Consultation Draft Chapter 3: Spatial Policies Delivering Strong and Inclusive Communities CS14: Distribution of New Housing CS14: Distribution of New Housing

  • Comment ID: 3399393/CSCD/6
  • Status: Accepted
The Core Strategy does not provide for the scale and distribution of housing development outside of Weston-super-Mare as required by the PCRSS. As stated previously there is a need to deliver 5,750 dwellings within the remainder of the District. Yatton is a suitable, sustainable settlement for additional housing and employment growth. Our client's site at "Land north of Arnolds Way, Yatton" is not constrained by flood risk or any other significant issues and is an opportunity for development.

Core Strategy - Consultation Draft Chapter 4: Area Policies CS28: Weston-super-Mare CS28: Weston-super-Mare

  • Comment ID: 3399393/CSCD/10
  • Status: Accepted
PROPOSED CHANGES: We propose that Policy CS28 Weston-super-Mare is deleted and re-written to provide for the scale of housing and employment development within and adjoining the town on the basis of the PCRSS. We also propose that paragraph 4.7 is deleted.

Core Strategy - Consultation Draft Chapter 3: Spatial Policies Delivering Strong and Inclusive Communities CS13: Scale of New Housing CS13: Scale of New Housing

  • Comment ID: 3399393/CSCD/5
  • Status: Accepted
Policy CS13 does not reflect the policy requirements of HMA1 of the PCRSS and therefore fails to reflect the requirements set out within PPS1 (paragraph 32) and PPS3 (paragraph 38). The document therefore fails the test of soundness requiring conformity with national planning and regional planning policy as set out within PPS12. The proposed housing numbers in Weston-super-Mare of 6,000 instead of the 3,000 set out in the RSS are undeliverable.

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

  • Comment ID: 3399393/CSCD/2
  • Status: Accepted
We object to the overall Vision for North Somerset set out in Visions 1-6. Fundamentally the Visions do not reference the need to meet the housing requirements of the District to 2026 based on the requirements and settlement strategy of the PCRSS. We also submit that Yatton should be identified as a market town due to its range of services, employment, housing and accessibility by modes of transport other than the private car - particularly by rail.
