While Weston is willing to take its fair share of development the towns of Portishead Nailsea and Clevedon and large villages must also be required to take their fair share including adjusting the green belt boundary if necessary.

Development of less environmentally sensitive land in and around existing settlements (including Ashton Vale) would prevent the need for large scale development that has been demonstrated to adversely impact the North Somerset and Mendip Bats Special Area of Conservation (see full comments - attached).

BPC is concerned that matters which affect the suitability of sites for residential development are deferred to the Local Plan stage, and therefore after the broad location has been identified for development through the JSP.

Consideration of the NSLP 2036 is premature ahead of the WOE JSP. Inadequate information has been presented to allow a considered assessment of the options.

Both Clevedon and Nailsea are to consider “the opportunity for Green Belt amendments”. However NSC’s policies aver protection for the existing Green Belt (which is highly valued by residents.). NSC has declined to consider sacrificing Green Belt between the southern ring road and Bristol City (Ashton Vale) on the basis of their current policy to protect Green Belt. The two appear to be contradictory.

There are far too many new houses proposed for Nailsea to be able to sustain. and this number results in the scheme already completely failing the critera in the Sustainability Scoping Report.

I am pleased to read that North Somerset Council consider the current situation regarding the Green Belt North of Nailsea should be maintained. So I am in full support of the Council's policy in this matter.

Identifying the area to the south and west of Nailsea as an area of strategic growth makes complete sense when the existing transport hubs are considered. The main line railway, train station and airport are major assets for an area to have.

I do not agree with the proposals for Backwell. Backwell is designated as a “Service Village’ and the plan states “Service Villages are locations for small scale development of an appropriate scale either within or abutting the settlement boundary.”
