Core Strategy - Consultation Draft Chapter 6: Delivery CS35: Implementation

  • Comment ID: 933985/CSCD/3
  • Status: Accepted
Seeks early and continuing engagement with development planning. Already involved in Weston Regeneration Area. Clear agenda and commitment needed for the requirement of sustainable transport for all new developments. Any significant additional development, delivered without the support of the necessary infrastructure improvements and investment in public transport, would increase congestion and therefore have an adverse impact on the strategic road network.

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

  • Comment ID: 933985/CSCD/7
  • Status: Accepted
Supports overall vision, particularly Weston being established as a major economic centre south of Bristol catering for the employment, social and leisure needs of its population whilst attracting visitors to support this role. Also supports reducing the dormitory role of market towns, provided that growth is balanced and commensurate to their scale and will not lead to in-commuting by car. Wishes to see further reference to promoting sustainable transport objectives within the overall Vision.

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: 933985/CSCD/15
  • Status: Accepted
Notes approach to Green Belt, including reliance on Local Plan designations at the Airport and Royal Portbury Dock. Reserves right to make detailed comments on proposals for amendments. Any developments at Royal Portbury Dock and the Airport need to be assessed in terms of impact on the strategic road network and if required, appropriate mitigation measures provided by the developments.

Core Strategy - Consultation Draft Chapter 3: Spatial Policies Delivering a Prosperous Economy CS21: Retail Hierarchy and Provision CS21: Retail Hierarchy and Provision

  • Comment ID: 933985/CSCD/30
  • Status: Accepted
Supports provision of retail facilities at an appropriate scale which supports communities and reduces the need to travel by car. Seeks reassurance that provision will be commensurate to the size of the settlement or new development, and is also in accordance with retail guidance in PPS4 so as not to create new destinations in their own right. Background text to the policy will need to be updated in light of the recent publication of PPS4 which replaces PPS6.

Core Strategy - Consultation Draft Chapter 4: Area Policies CS31: Market and Coastal Towns CS31: Market and Coastal Towns

  • Comment ID: 933985/CSCD/38
  • Status: Accepted
Employment led growth scenario supporting existing populations reduces out-commuting along M5. New employment developments should be linked in with existing urban areas and not reliant on remote positioning next to M5 exacerbating existing car based out-commuting problems.

  • Comment ID: 933985/CSCD/4
  • Status: Accepted
The Agency has commissioned a modelling exercise to assess for the future impacts on Junction 21. What modelling has the Council undertaken to identify the impact of development as proposed by the Core Strategy, and more specifically the impact of the Core Strategy upon Junction 21? Would welcome opportunity to review any modelling that has or will be undertaken.

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

  • Comment ID: 933985/CSCD/5
  • Status: Accepted
Concerned at implications of not planning for SW Bristol urban extension. Retrospective planning, if RSS approves the extension, or re-distribution of 9,000 dwellings elsewhere within the district could have fundamental implications for the strategic road network. Would therefore wish to see the Core Strategy based on two options: one with the urban extension and one without. The same level of detailed evidence base with regards to infrastructure would be required for both options.

Core Strategy - Consultation Draft Chapter 2: Visions and Objectives VIS 2: Weston-super-Mare Vision

  • Comment ID: 933985/CSCD/8
  • Status: Accepted
Welcomes the detailed reference to employment led development within Weston to redress the imbalance between the available working population and employment opportunities within the town. Not clear at this stage how an employment led strategy will be delivered. Also supports the reference to delivering a high standard of strategic transport infrastructure thereby providing a transportation network which will provide an integrated, convenient and sustainable service for all parts of the town.

Core Strategy - Consultation Draft Chapter 3: Spatial Policies Living Within Environmental Limits CS7: Planning for Waste in North Somerset CS7: Planning for Waste in North Somerset

  • Comment ID: 933985/CSCD/16
  • Status: Accepted
Waste management can generate significant numbers of HGV trips, or car trips if a household facility, therefore the Development Management DPD will need to consider the impacts of future facilities on the strategic road network.

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: 933985/CSCD/23
  • Status: Accepted
Within the remainder of North Somerset, would raise specific concern over residential development within those settlements in close proximity to the M5 corridor and junctions, in particular Clevedon, Portishead and Easton-in-Gordano. Therefore requests that the transportation impacts (in particular the impacts on the M5) of the scale of development envisaged in these locations are fully considered prior to allocating specific sites.
