Core Strategy - Consultation Draft Chapter 3: Spatial Policies Living Within Environmental Limits CS10: Transport and Movement CS10: Transport and Movement

Supportive of the expansion of the existing Park and Ride site at Ashton Vale as this facility will become more utilised following the potential implementation of the Bus Rapid Transit. We note however that there is a significant difference in the level of usage between weekdays and the weekend. As it stands, the Park and Ride is used heavily by commuters and this clearly presents the opportunity for an expanded facility to be used in conjunction with the proposed new stadium.

Does not reflect national planning guidance. It fails to identify the need to promote sustainable transport choices as a key consideration in parking provision. In accordance with PPG13, reduced car parking provision has to form part of a package of planning and transport measures if it is to successfully promote sustainable travel choices.

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: 3585633/CSCD/4
  • Status: Accepted
The emerging Core Strategy should reflect the housing requirement set out in the emerging RSS and specifically support the development of the South West Bristol urban extension as it clearly has a key role to play in the wider city-region as a major driver of the regional economy. The need for housing across the south west is increasing. North Somerset is identified as a "New Growth Point" in the emerging RSS. The emerging RSS should now be afforded considerable weight.

  • Status: Accepted
In the light of comments at CS13 and within the context of Chapter 5 of the emerging Core Strategy, we support the delivery of the Main Masterplan (prepared by Broadway Malyan), which meets the full RSS requirement of 9,000 additional dwellings in North Somerset

Core Strategy - Consultation Draft Chapter 3: Spatial Policies Living Within Environmental Limits CS6: North Somerset's Green Belt CS6: North Somerset's Green Belt

  • Comment ID: 3585633/CSCD/1
  • Status: Accepted
As currently drafted, it is unclear whether the draft Policy is seeking to provide clarification on development control procedures for development proposals within the Green Belt and/or on land use policy designations. It does not reflect national planning guidance in relation to Green Belts. Requiring Green Belt land to offer the most sustainable option is misleading.Policy CS6 and supporting text requires further clarification to ensure that the use of terminology is consistent with PPG2.
