Burrington Parish Council's Comments on North Somerset Core Strategy Consultation Draft:

Burrington Parish Council has considered, in particular, the Area Policies for Service Villages (CS32) and Smaller Settlements and Countryside (CS33). The Parish contains all or parts of the villages of Burrington, Rickford, Upper Langford and Lower Langford. We support the distinction between Service Villages like the neighbouring villages of Churchill or Wrington and Smaller Settlements, like those in this Parish, which should provide an effective approach to the planning of community facilities and services, employment, housing and transport. The approach is also consistent with national and regional guidance. In Policy CS 33, however, some thought needs to be given to the definition of 'dwellings for workers in essential rural enterprises'. Rural areas contain a range of businesses with employees in need of housing. The approach should be clearly related to the requirements of PPS 7 Annex A.
