In so prioritising the numbered points these should be applied having regard to both the need for flexibility and to reach a balanced conclusion in relation to all of the policy considerations associated with any planning application under consideration.

The SPD addressing Master Plan, Design Codes and Delivery Plan should be ready to be read in concert with these draft policies. The requirement for 1.5 B use class jobs per dwelling in addition to jobs from non-B uses is considered to be too high and should be replaced with a more achievable figure - say 1.0 in the absence of any futher evidence.

Paras 4.34 and 4.35 seek to explain why the Council may permit residential development in the town centre area to proceed in isolation rather than in association with an employment-led strategy for elsewhere. The point at issue here is that the justification for doing so is based upon the need for flexibility-a need that the council appears oblivious of in numerous instances elswhere in its proposed policies. All housing should be treated equally in this respect.

Should incorporate para 3 of PPS4. Seams to wrongly imply that any development should be employment led. Should not have emphasis on B1 uses, a more flexible approach to employment development should be adopted, particularly in the W-s-M area. The prioritising of previously developed land may not be the most sustainable option. Sites should only be safeguarded if there is a realistic chance of them coming forward.

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.

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.

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.

In respect of the sub-heading of "Masterplanning" the first sentence is an isolated statement without reasoned justification and should be deleted.

The proposed policy should be deleted-it is tantamount to introducing green belt restrictions in areas without the need to justify same in planning terms. Either the land is worthy of green belt status or else it remains countryside; the policy should be deleted. There is a lack of clear guidance upon the appropriate criteria that would be used to make any such assessment and where this would differ from the countryside policies alone. The area between Locking and Weston should not be included.

In light of the representations made under policies CS13, CS14 and CS20, consequential amendments will be required to this policy to give effect to same. In relation to both the employment and residential development elements of this policy, this should permit an increased level of development than the limited extent currently envisaged under the proposed policy.
