1. North Somerset Local Plan 2036: Issues and Options Document Banwell Garden Village Q11. Do you agree with the principles set out for Banwell Garden Village and would you suggest any changes to these? We consider that establishing the principles is a fundamental step towards developing the detail for development in these areas.

  • Comment ID: 21449761//2
The principles set out for Banwell Garden Village are broadly agreed, although it is not clear at this stage how these principles will form the basis of or inform specific future Local Plan policy.

1. North Somerset Local Plan 2036: Issues and Options Document Banwell Garden Village Q14. Are there any other options you would add for accommodating strategic growth within the Garden Village near Banwell?

  • Comment ID: 21449761//5
Whilst the land on the eastern boundary of the Banwell Garden Village site appears on initial review to be heavily constrained in flood risk and drainage terms, Bloor Homes will evidence that effective use of this land can support the delivery of the Garden Village through providing appropriate land for strategic landscaping, ecological mitigation and valuable informal public open space, synonymous with the principles of the delivery of a Garden Community.

  • Comment ID: 21449761//6
We agree with and generally support the proposed vision for Mendip Spring Garden Village. The aspirational vision sets the correct tone to develop a supportive planning policy context to deliver a sustainable new community to help meet the Region’s housing needs in the medium to long term.

  • Comment ID: 21449761//1
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.

1. North Somerset Local Plan 2036: Issues and Options Document Banwell Garden Village Q12. We would be interested in your thoughts on additional employment at the Banwell development including the type and possible location.

  • Comment ID: 21449761//3
We consider that any larger scale employment land/development would be best placed in close proximity to the anticipated new Junction 21A of the M5 as referenced in the vision for Banwell on page 35 of the Issues document. Other smaller scale and/or non ‘B’ Use Class employment opportunities can be integrated within the core area of the village as anticipated in the submitted Vision Document.

1. North Somerset Local Plan 2036: Issues and Options Document Mendip Spring garden Village Q17. Do you have any comments on the Concept Diagrams and Alternative Scenarios set out?

  • Comment ID: 21449761//8
e consider that the concept diagram in the Issues document provides a reasonable starting point to consider how strategic housing development could come forward in this area, however we consider that both of the alternative scenarios should be considered.

The principles set out for Mendip Spring Garden Village are broadly agreed and reflect the proposed vision. However, we do consider a further principle should be added.

1. North Somerset Local Plan 2036: Issues and Options Document Banwell Garden Village Q13. Do you have any comments on the Concept Diagrams and Alternative Scenarios set out?

  • Comment ID: 21449761//4
We propose that the concept diagram should be revised to take into account both the first alternative scenario proposed (including further development to the north up to and beyond Silver Moor Lane), and the second alternative scenario including development between the proposed Banwell Bypass and Banwell Village.
