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

  • Comment ID: 3563969/CSCD/3
  • Status: Accepted
We object to the first Priority Objective (page 18) which significantly underestimates the housing needs of North Somerset. The Objective should refer to the requirement to deliver 26,760 dwellings in North Somerset in the period 2006 - 2026, as set out in the Proposed Changes version of the Regional Spatial Strategy for the South West (July 2008). We object to the focus on strategic development at Weston-super-Mare in Priority Objective 4 and consider that this should include Nailsea.

We support the schemes that will improve connectivity within and between the major towns in the wider North Somerset/Bristol area. We support Proposal 13 to extend car parking facilities and improve pedestrian access at Nailsea.

We request that the Council set a reasonable target within the Core Strategy, based on robust evidence on viability (as required by Planning Policy Statement 3) and build in flexibility which will ensure the most appropriate and sustainable form of development is delivered, taking into account all the costs associated with a development.

  • Comment ID: 3563969/CSCD/4
  • Status: Accepted
We object to principal 2 in Policy CS1 as we consider that it sets a threshold that is too low for renewable energy solutions. We consider that it is not necessary to prioritise the re-use of previously developed land (PDL) before greenfield land. We consider policy CS1 should be deleted and that the policy should, instead, encourage developments which help to increase the self-containment of settlements.

The policy commitment to achieving high quality buildings and spaces in North Somerset is supported. We object to the proposed requirement for residential developments comprising 10 or more dwellings to achieve the Building for Life Gold standard.

  • Status: Accepted
Developers can and should only be required to provide community infrastructure on a scale commensurate with the impact of the development. Any requirement beyond this level of provision would be unlawful in our view, planned urban extensions provide a greater critical mass which is needed to deliver and support the associated infrastructure and enhance self-containment.

  • Comment ID: 3563969/CSCD/5
  • Status: Accepted
We object to Policy CS2, point 2, as it is unduly onerous and should be deleted or modified to take into account the practicalities and viability of delivering these requirements. We object to Policy CS2, point 3, and recommend that it should be amended so as to be in line with the national timetable for the roll out of the Code for Sustainable Homes within North Somerset.

  • Comment ID: 3563969/CSCD/12
  • Status: Accepted
We object to the Council adopting a strategic housing requirement which is 9,000 dwellings below the level proposed by the Secretary of State in the Proposed Changes version of the South West RSS. We disagree that it would be unsustainable and contrary to RSS objectives to direct any shortfall from the extensions to elsewhere within the District. We are concerned that the Council has assumed that all planning permissions granted on or before 1 April 2009 will be implemented.

  • Comment ID: 3563969/CSCD/18
  • Status: Accepted
We consider that the policy should also support planned urban extensions to settlements where it can be demonstrated that they will increase selfcontainment, by creating the critical mass necessary to support the town's services. We consider that such an extension at Nailsea should also be supported within the policy.
