Under item 3.298 the council recognises that the economy of North Somerset and creating jobs within North Somerset are key priorities and aims to help create 29,500 jobs over the period.

Item 3.308 looks to build up an Employment Investment Fund with contributions from, for example, Section 106 payments. If the Regional Development Agencies are disbanded, some of their funds should be diverted to local authorities. An Employment Investment Fund is an excellent idea.

The RSS for the area requires 26,500 new homes by 2026. The Core Strategy plans only 17,750 homes since the 9000 homes proposed by the RSS for South West Bristol are not acceptable to the council as the plan absorbs green belt. The councils position will be difficult to maintain no matter which party is in power. If, eventually, development in South West Bristol does go ahead, our committee would favour Option A of the Consultation Document of October 2006.

CS20 seems to be less detailed than the sections dealing with retail and tourism (CS21 and CS22). Although these areas are important, they tend to be low skilled and low paid. There needs to be more emphasis on high skill, high reward jobs in CS20. One way to achieve this is to establish links with nearby universities, Bristol, West of England, Bath and possibly Cardiff (see below). Research projects at these universities should provide a good source of 'spin off' technologies.

This section rightly emphasises the importance of renewable energy. Sources of renewable energy could also bring employment opportunities. The Severn Estuary has huge potential for generating electricity. Even without a barrage, tidal turbines could provide a great deal of power.

Item 3.31 states the need for good insulation, use of solar panels etc. To this list should be added under floor heating and ground source and air source heat pumps. This is particularly important for public buildings like schools.

Core Strategy - Consultation Draft Chapter 2: Visions and Objectives VIS 5: Portishead Vision

  • Comment ID: 933345/CSCD/6

This vision looks to retain the distinctive character of Portishead where ever possible and mentioned, in particular, the High Street. It is also important to protect the surroundings of main approach road to Portishead otherwise Portishead is at risk of looking like every other mid-size town in England.

The Core Strategy emphasises the importance of preserving the special character of North Somerset coastal towns. In Portishead the Lake Grounds are undoubtedly very special and historic. The protection of the Lake Grounds should be raised well above the category of 'Unregistered Historic Park'.

Page 42 item 3.91 rightly identifies private gardens as important green spaces and draws attention to the harmful effects of 'garden grabbing'. The strategy should do more to protect gardens from the ravages of PPS3's definition of gardens as 'brown field sites'.
