Martyn Leisure recognises the importance of mixed, balanced communities. However it is unclear as to how Policy CS14 supports this objective. Policy CS15 seeks to support a mixture of housing types in existing and future communities - though through the deletion (without proper review) of settlement boundaries.

In order to create mixed and balanced communities Martyn Leisure suggests that there should be a full and proper review of the existing settlement boundaries. Kewstoke, given its importance as a tourist destination with related facilities complementary to Weston-super-Mare and within a short travel distance and time, should have its boundary reviewed to accommodate land committed for residential development. Such an approach will enhance the settlement and others by encouraging investment in, and provision of, further suitable facilities.
