North Somerset Core Strategy Consultation on consequential changes to remitted policies CS6, CS14, CS19, CS28, CS30, CS31, CS32, CS33 Introduction

  • Comment ID: 4207073//1
This representation is made in the light of the proposed changes to remitted policies CS6 Green Belt, CS14 Distribution of new housing, CS28 Weston-super-Mare, CS30 Weston Villages, CS31 Clevedon, Nailsea and Portishead as a result of the new adopted policy CS13. These proposed changes amount to a redistribution of higher levels of housing without adequate justification, having regard to consequential effects and the requirement of the local authority, when exercising their plan making functio

North Somerset Core Strategy Consultation on consequential changes to remitted policies CS6, CS14, CS19, CS28, CS30, CS31, CS32, CS33 Policy CS33: Smaller settlements and countryside

  • Comment ID: 4207073//8
 The Council proposes no changes to the policy wording or to the text to CS32 and CS33. This presumably means that local authority see no particular issues with increasing the housing levels by 200 % in each circumstance. This absence of spatial planning, belies the planning crisis that currently inflicts these areas of the district. Due to the failure of the local authority to determine a sound housing figure in their Core Strategy, together with the backlog of housing delivery and the paucity

  • Comment ID: 4207073//2
The local authority proposes no changes to the Green Belt policy, however in the absence of a proper assessment of the success or otherwise of existing spatial objectives, eg the jobs-led-housing strategy at WsM, or the alternative spatial options to deliver the higher housing figures, together with an updated SEA, it is not possible to determine whether this policy is sound. Therefore this is an objection to proposed policy CS 6. Until such time as a full assessment has been undertaken as set

  • Comment ID: 4207073//4
The local authority proposes the changes to the policy to increase the scale of housing by 63% at WsM, however in the absence of a proper assessment of the success or otherwise of existing spatial objectives, eg the jobs-led-housing strategy at WsM, or the alternative spatial options to deliver the higher housing figures, together with an updated SEA, it is not possible to determine whether this policy is sound.

The local authority proposes the changes to the policy to increase the scale of housing by 18% at Weston Villages, however in the absence of a proper assessment of the success or otherwise of existing spatial objectives, eg the jobs-led-housing strategy at WsM, or the alternative spatial options to deliver the higher housing figures, together with an updated SEA, it is not possible to determine whether this policy is sound.

  • Comment ID: 4207073//6
The remaining distribution of higher housing numbers to predominantly Nailsea, the Service Villages and other settlements, amounts to an increase of 3000 homes to these areas, without any assessment of the impact. These communities already experience substantial out commuting and therefore this increase will only exacerbate the problem. The spatial strategy has been significantly altered in respect of these areas, amounting to a 200% increase housing in these areas.  This is a fundamental change

  The Council proposes no changes to the policy wording or to the text to these two policies. This presumably means that local authority see no particular issues with increasing the housing levels by 200 % in each circumstance. This absence of spatial planning, belies the planning crisis that currently inflicts these areas of the district.
