1. North Somerset Local Plan 2036: Issues and Options Document Potential new policy areas Q49. Do you have any views on our intended approach to development on previously developed land in the countryside? What type of sites may be suitable for residential redevelopment?

  • Comment ID: 20583553//13
We do not agree with the principle of extending the policy to include private residential development only. If economic and general community uses have been ruled out, then community-owned options should be offered, which may include limited community-owned residential.

1. North Somerset Local Plan 2036: Issues and Options Document Potential new policy areas Q50. Do you have any views on the conversion of holiday accommodation to residential use in the countryside? What approach should future policies take?

  • Comment ID: 20583553//14
The reuse of isolated rural buildings in the countryside is practical. However, care must be taken to ensure that incremental expansion in the number of buildings in one location does not happen.

  • Comment ID: 20583553//7
We welcome the clarification of HIA and would suggest that the policy include the requirement for practical actions / mitigations at an early stage of any development rather than being left to the final stages, or not delivered at all.
