Core Strategy - Consultation Draft Chapter 3: Spatial Policies Delivering Strong and Inclusive Communities CS15: Mixed and Balanced Communities CS15: Mixed and Balanced Communities

There should be a full and proper review of existing settlement boundaries. Kewstoke, given its importance as a tourist destination with related facilities complementary to Weston-super-Mare and within a short travel distance and time, should have its boundary reviewed to accommodate land committed for residential development. Such an approach will enhance the settlement and others by encouraging investment in, and provision of, further suitable facilities.

Viability is critical in the provision of housing, particularly where it aims to support the Core Strategy Vision. The policy should be amended, deleting "The capacity of a site to deliver a level of affordable housing that can be supported financially will be determined by individual site viability analysis" and inserting "The requirement for a site to deliver any affordable housing or require commuted sum contributions will be determined by an individual site viability assessment."

The policy should be reworded as: "Both new and improved visitor and tourist facilities and accommodation will be supported across the district provided they:". Para. 3.30 should be amended to recognise: - the continued importance given over to existing tourist facilities in North Somerset - that existing facilities in North Somerset will be supported - that, in accordance with PPS4, the expansion of tourism facilities will be supported in rural areas (in or on the edge of settlements).

CS14 will only maintain inequality in rural areas and could exacerbate their decline where population growth may be key to sustaining or encouraging rural enterprises and services. Settlement boundaries should be reviewed and the Core Strategy policy allow for development opportunities. Kewstoke's importance as a tourist destination and proximity to Weston-super-Mare could make it suitable for inclusion as a service village in the Core Strategy.

Rural villages and settlements should be enhanced as well as maintained through the policies of the Core Strategy particularly as they will directly affect future development to 2026. Reword VIS 7 to read "...The rural villages will have ENHANCED their individual character, identity and sense of community. Accessibility will..."

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

CS33 as worded ignores coastal settlements and their role in tourism. It does not highlight support for tourist development most notably the regeneration of existing and established facilities. The policy should be reworded to permit the enhancement of tourism facilities in and adjoining smaller settlements particularly where they support the local and wider economy of North Somerset.
