The reference to mixed use communities, valued for their high standards of sustainability is welcome. North Somerset has the opportunity to become an exemplar in that regard.

However, it will be important to ensure that the "living within environmental limits" imperative is applied everywhere and for that reason we are somewhat concerned at the reference to balancing economic growth and environmental issues in the final sentence of the North Somerset Vision. We would prefer to see that sentence amended to reflect the need to ensure that all development takes place within environmental limits.
