We appreciate the opportunity to comment on the latest Consultation Draft document as part of the process of developing North Somerset's Core Strategy. Whilst we welcome the progress which has been made on preparing the Core Strategy, we are disappointed with the content of the document and believe the suggested allocations significantly underestimate the level of development required within the West of England sub-region over the plan period.

We address our comments and concerns around the following themes;
? Cross boundary collaboration
? South West Bristol
? Connectivity and accessibility
? Delivering a prosperous economy
