Weston-super-Mare Town Centre Regeneration - Draft Supplementary Planning Document (SPD)


Weston-super-Mare Town Centre Regeneration - DRAFT SUPPLEMENTARY PLANNING DOCUMENT (SPD)

In March 2015 North Somerset Council published the Prospectus for Change. This document set out ambitious plans for the town centre to create a lively university town where people want to live, learn and spend their leisure time. The vision aims to deliver a stronger, vibrant and prosperous town centre better equipped to deal with current and future challenges. The themes of living, learning and lifestyle form the focus of town centre regeneration, with the aim of attracting more people to live in and visit the town centre, increasing footfall and vitality. The ambition set out in the document gained wide spread support.

A draft supplementary planning document (SPD) has now been prepared that will establish a masterplan and delivery strategy in order to support its implementation. The Weston Town Centre Regeneration SPD;

  • Sets out a Masterplan to guide future planning of the town centre;
  • Identifies the key development sites and infrastructure projects which the council are proposing
  • Helps to remove barriers and positively encourage investment

The SPD sets out the principles and overall plan for this area. It is to be used as guidance and can be material to the determination of planning applications. It will guide development but cannot foresee all potential opportunities. Indeed, in many instances flexibility to respond to innovative solutions and changing circumstances will be required.

Consultation will take place on this draft for 6 weeks, closing on 12 December 2016. The response to consultation will be assessed, a consultation statement will be prepared and amendments proposed to the SPD as appropriate. It is anticipated that the SPD will be adopted by the council in the New Year 2017.
