I will leave it to the residents of Banwell to comment, although I appreciate the value of the long awaited by-pass. However, my feeling is that the proposed development is excessive.

We support the general suggested location for the Garden Village, to the north west of Banwell and the vision for a separate settlement, which has its own character and sense of place. We agree that the site is well positioned to achieve a sustainable new community which meets housing and employment land need within North Somerset, but also the wider area.

Any Garden Village should be separate from Banwell and not impact on its character. Use current roads and promote public transport. A Banwell bypass will only increase traffic. Housing/employment design a challenge given proximity to AONB. Floodplain/ecological issues will not be able to be mitigated. Industrial/distribution units do not bring a substantial number of jobs. Employment uses should be focused on smaller local businesses recycling profits back into the community and reducing travel.

We agree with, and welcome the proposed vision for Banwell. We are reassured that synergy between the Council’s, and Bloor Homes’ aspiration for the Banwell Garden Village is evident and reflective of discussions undertaken on the site to date.

Constraints of the Banwell Garden Village site mean that it is unsuitable for 1900 houses and would have impacts that cannot be mitigated.

I am completely opposed to the strategic locations for housing on this scale in Churchill, Banwell and Backwell.

We support the proposals for Banwell Garden Village and would direct the Council to our separate representations on this matter.
