MM13: Weston College - Ellandi LLP support the inclusion of this site allocation for retail and restaurant uses at ground floor along with residential development above. However, Ellandi object to the ground floor uses being identified for A1 or A3 uses only. In the interests of providing the centre with an appropriate mix of uses that will add to its future vitality and viability, the policy should identify that the following uses would be acceptable in principle subject to ensuring amenity considerations associated with noise and our are adequately addressed. 

The uses allocated for the ground floor should include A1, A2, A3 A4 and A5 (where an A5 use is ancillary to an A3 or A4 use), B1,D1, D2 or sui genres uses where these provide similar town centre service uses which add to the centres vitality and viability. 

Flexibility of uses at the ground floor level is required to ensure that as the major housing growth around Nailsea proposed by the emerging West of England Joint Spatial Plan is delivered, there is a significant opportunity within Nailsea town centre to meet the needs of the increasing resident population. The Weston College site represents a highly sustainable, town centre location to meet these needs thereby benefiting existing and new residents.
