I strongly support the proposal to end infill development in rural villages like Failand. The semirural character of these villages has been progressively degraded by infilling and such development is incompatible with sustainability objectives since 80% of residents commute to work.

Do we need to be clearer that any development in the nearest Service Village of Long Ashton must be within the main curtilage of Long Ashton, not the wider parish, which for instance includes the Longwood area of Failand and the fields opposite Weston Road, Failand?
