1. North Somerset Local Plan 2036: Issues and Options Document Local Housing Growth Settlement Boundaries Q9. What are your views on the options for revised settlement boundaries?

  • Comment ID: 11197185//8
Any revision to settlement boundaries needs to be undertaken in conjunction with the affected parishes, taking account of local issues and requirements. Option 2, would then remove uncertainty from the planning process and avoid unwanted speculative applications.

  • Comment ID: 11197185//16
HIAs should be considered for smaller developments than “large scale” and should be more rigorous particularly in relation to roads and mineral extraction.

1. North Somerset Local Plan 2036: Issues and Options Document Potential new policy areas Q51. Do you have any views on our approach to minerals?

  • Comment ID: 11197185//24
The overall policy should remain unchanged. However, the local impact must be more effectively monitored and infrastructure strengthened to facilitate the movement of extracted materials. Rigorous HIAs should be required and operations required to be carbon neutral where this is practicable.

1. North Somerset Local Plan 2036: Issues and Options Document Transport Q39. Are there any other transport issues or challenges that have been missed? How can they be addressed in the Local Plan?

  • Comment ID: 11197185//1
Overall North Somerset seem to have taken a pragmatic approach to meet the required housing numbers by spreading the majority of the housing over 4 areas. All of these proposal will increase traffic levels almost everywhere in NS and particularly around Long Ashton, as many of the new residents will travel to Bristol. There should be more emphasis on improving public transport in advance of the proposed developments.

The scale of the required development is likely to be affected by Brexit and may not be as large as currently anticipated.
