1. North Somerset Local Plan 2036: Issues and Options Document Potential new policy areas Q52. What are your views on our proposed policy approach to electric vehicle charging points?

  • Comment ID: 20127937//23
Electric Vehicle Charging - A new policy should be promoted requiring on all residential development the installation to a suitable vehicle charging point location at every house/dedicated car parking space, a cable capable of delivering 7kW. (The charge point should however be installed by the house owner because of the lack of a standard charge point).

1. North Somerset Local Plan 2036: Issues and Options Document Urban Living Q30. Do you have any views on the opportunities and challenges of achieving good quality urban intensification within this area?

A370 - The issues quoted are not the main issues: development must have a viable sustainable travel solution and this must be a fundamental issue that must be included.

1. North Somerset Local Plan 2036: Issues and Options Document Banwell Garden Village Q10. Do you have any comments on the proposed vision for Banwell?

  • Comment ID: 20127937//6
employment - employment will only take off in Banwell provided there will be north facing slips on the new M5 interchange. Highways England should be challenged to agree a Departure from Standards if necessary to permit north facing slips. alternatives - these are not real alternatives and have little in terms of pros and cons.

1. North Somerset Local Plan 2036: Issues and Options Document Employment Q33. Do you agree that the delivery of employment and employment premises remain important to Weston-super-Mare?

  • Comment ID: 20127937//12
Employment should remain important in Weston. Employment can be enhanced by having good sustainable transport links to areas of new housing propoised in the JSP. Housing should be focussed on those SDLs with good sustainable transport links to the centres of employment.

1. North Somerset Local Plan 2036: Issues and Options Document North Somerset Issues Q5. Do you agree with these or are there other challenges or issues which we have not included and how might the Local Plan address these?

Green Belt - We disagree with the emotive words “preventing the sprawl of Bristol especially from large scale speculative housing proposals.” . We consider an issue that should be addressed is how existing Green Belt land to the immediate south of Bristol could be developed sensitively and sustainably to respond for the demand for housing in the regional employment centre. Changes to Green Belt here may need to be more than “minor” and this qualification to a Bristol Green Belt review to the imm

1. North Somerset Local Plan 2036: Issues and Options Document Bristol Airport Q38. What are your thoughts on the four proposed options for a Bristol Airport policy in the new Local Plan 2036? Do you have a preferred option?

  • Comment ID: 20127937//13
Employment - Airport. Option 1 is supported - limiting maximum development is no bad thing and consistent with reducing adverse impacts on climate change. The airport is poorly located with limited public transport links and further development at Exeter or Birmingham should be encouraged instead once the land limits are reached at Lulsgate.

1. North Somerset Local Plan 2036: Issues and Options Document Potential new policy areas Q47. Where a new policy sets a % reduction in carbon emissions, if it is deemed this cannot be met on-site, should it introduce a mechanism to collect off-site carbon-emission payments?

  • Comment ID: 20127937//19
%reduction - no comments at this stage other than development impacts must include off site transport impacts.

key issue missing from the developing principles is how a sustainable transport provision can be made to avoid so much use of the private vehicle. in the “Transport” section of Issues and Options, the importance is noted of offering greater travel choice. This needs considering in the context of MSGV in the “New Policies Area” section of Issues and Options, the importance is noted of reducing Climate Change.
