Core Strategy - Consultation Draft Chapter 2: Visions and Objectives VIS 1: North Somerset Vision

  • Comment ID: 3619969/CSCD/2
  • Status: Accepted
The SWB Urban extension deserves recognition within the vision. The creation of such a significant sustainable community would have clear benefits in terms of: addressing housing need, assisting with the self containment of existing service settlements, encouraging sustainable commuter trips and providing wider infrastructure improvements. Greater recognition should be made within the Vision for the identified service villages to accommodate new development not just 'for rural needs.

Concern over criterion 8. The RSS does not seek to promote the development of previously developed land as an over-riding priority.The CS preference for development on previously developed land could result in unsustainable patterns of development. Furthermore, such a position could also hinder the delivery of both urban extensions as it would be expected that both developments would necessitate the release of greenfield land.

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: 3619969/CSCD/7
  • Status: Accepted
The undersupply of housing is not in conformity with the Development Plan. No case has been made by the Council as to why, in respect of housing need and anticipated trajectories, no provision for the SWBUE is made. Furthermore, due to a failure by the Council to publish their Sustainability Appraisal, the social implications for failing to provide the SWBUE cannot be fully appreciated.

Core Strategy - Consultation Draft Chapter 5: SW Bristol Urban Extension Main Master Plan (Full RSS Requirement)

  • Comment ID: 3619969/CSCD/11
  • Status: Accepted
Strong support is given to the inclusion of land at Long Ashton to aid the delivery of the full SWBUE. One area of concern is the omission of the railway. It is disappointing to see that other forms of sustainable solution within the Area of Search have not been considered, such as development at Long Ashton. This would provide clear sustainability benefits through expansion of a service settlement.Supports the delivery of urban extensions beyond 2026.

  • Status: Accepted
Support for the restrictive nature of the policy in general but it needs to make the necessary revisions to the Green Belt to accommodate the SWB extension. It needs to be augmented by an additional paragraph in the policy that positively directs new development to sites in the Area of Search for the SWBUE, particularly those which offer wide ranging sustainability benefits.

Core Strategy - Consultation Draft Chapter 3: Spatial Policies Delivering Strong and Inclusive Communities CS14: Distribution of New Housing CS14: Distribution of New Housing

  • Comment ID: 3619969/CSCD/8
  • Status: Accepted
Policy CS14 is deemed unsound due to the omission of the SWBUE which itself is a key location for new residential development, the distribution strategy is flawed. As there is a forecast need to justify the SWBUE, failure to make such provision will inevitably lead to future development pressures on the SSCTs and larger towns which cannot be accommodated, thus the original requirement for the SWBUE.

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

  • Comment ID: 3619969/CSCD/4
  • Status: Accepted
Lack of SA to test sustainability credentials. A deficit in housing delivery. No reference to development which would be delivered in association with the Bristol Outer Ring Road and Bristol Rapid Transit.If employment not forthcoming at Weston then could exacerbate housing supply issues. Priority 6 should recognise development opportunities to enhance the role and function of villages e.g Long Ashton. Green Belt revisions should be acknowledged. 9 should recognise funding from urban extentions.

Core Strategy - Consultation Draft Chapter 4: Area Policies CS32: Service Villages CS32: Service Villages

  • Comment ID: 3619969/CSCD/9
  • Status: Accepted
The requirement for good design is welcomed - concerns are raised on the basis that the policy does not differentiate between the different roles of the service villages. The policy should differentiate between the differing roles of the villages. Some villages such as Long Ashton are subject to greater development needs due their proximity and functional relationship with nearby SSCTs.

Core Strategy - Consultation Draft Chapter 1: Introduction Relationship to the Regional Spatial Strategy

  • Comment ID: 3619969/CSCD/1
  • Status: Accepted
LDD's must maintain general conformity with the RSS reflecting the document's status as part of the Development Plan. Whilst the SW RSS has not yet been published in its final form it has reached such an advanced stage that the Government Office for the South West (GOSW) expects it to be given considerable weight in any applications for development. The Core Strategy fails to do this. The approach is not considered acceptable. The implications of the UXs should be central elements of the CS.

Core Strategy - Consultation Draft Chapter 5: SW Bristol Urban Extension Chapter 5: Introduction

  • Comment ID: 3619969/CSCD/10
  • Status: Accepted
To reference the SWBUE as an addendum is not acceptable, it needs to be ingrained within the CS, through inclusion within appropriate visions, objectives and core policies. CS must be in conformity with the RSS. Any SWBUE policy for the purposes of the CS would only need to identify a strategic allocation subsequently refined in a LDD.
