Further clarity on when a Health Impact Assessment would be required is welcomed. However, these should only be sought for applications which are genuinely likely to have a significant impact on health and wellbeing.

Building houses close to a major road (M5 to A38 link) will be a major health hazard.

A full HIA should only be required if a significant impact upon the health and wellbeing of the local population from an individual residential development has been identified and evidenced.

Local Plan HIA must consider impacts of ground and air noise from Bristol Airport. Night flying is detrimental to well being. Day time noise also affects quality of life. Recent Chief Medical Officer report states Local Authorities’ responsibility to ensure residents’ health is not impacted by noise as well as air quality. Planning application for airport expansion should be expected to have independent HIA.

Air quality monitoring for both NO2 and particulates is indicated, at a wider range of locations, and the cumulative impact of several developments should be taken into account.
