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.

The proposed policy should be deleted as it is tantamount to introducing green belt restrictions in areas without the need to justify same in planning terms. 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.

Core Strategy - Consultation Draft Chapter 4: Area Policies CS29: Weston-super-Mare Town Centre CS29: Weston-super-Mare Town Centre

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 elsewhere in its proposed policies. All housing should be treated equally in this respect.

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 the third sentence of the first paragraph of this policy its meaning is unclear, by virtue of its grammatical construction, and it should therefore be deleted. All the requirements of this policy should again be subject to viability considerations and the wording amended accordingly to give effect to this. The general requirements for residential development to achieve the Building for Life Gold standard is considered to be unreasonable unless subject to broader viaility considerations.

The Council's approach needs to now take into account the Government's latest planning policy and guidance set out in the recently published PPS4. Requiring a district wide employment-led appraoch is inflexible and unreasonable. All economic development should be positively encouraged, the comments regarding the predominance of B uses in para 3.300 are flawed.

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.
