Given the existing pressures on the town we need assurances that 'employment led' growth really will mean that there must be job opportunities provided for development applications to be supported. Please also clarify what is meant by if employment opportunities are not appropriate, off-site contributions must be provided. Is it sensible to rely on contributions for employment generating initiatives to give planning permission - what if the initiatives do not result in any employment - the congestion pressures of out commuting will be compounded even further - what time will we expect residents to leave home for work in Bristol, queues are backing up before 7pm now!
