Consultation on the Draft Plan is premature pending resolution of the final distribution of the revised housing requirement. The consequential amendments to the other remitted policies of the Core Strategy have yet to be examined, and the Inspector appointed to examine the policies has raised some preliminary concerns (in a letter to the Council dated 24th February 2016) which could result in significant changes to the distribution of the revised housing requirement.


In the light of the above, it is anticipated that significant changes to the draft site allocations contained in the current consultation document may be required consequent upon the outcome of the examination of the other remitted policies. In the light of this, only brief submissions will be

made to the consultation draft plan since it is anticipated that the significance of the changes that will be necessary, for reasons alluded to by the Examination Inspector in his preliminary letter, will necessitate further consultation on a revised draft plan in due course to ensure that the Site

Allocations Plan (SAP) is in conformity with the Core Strategy. The representations contained herein are made ‘without prejudice’ to the outcome of that Examination of the other remitted polices, and the objections that have been raised by Moor Park (North Somerset) Ltd to the current distribution of the revised housing requirement.
