  • Comment ID: 21472417//3
Key Issues have not addressed all the challenges facing North Somerset, specifically the lack of affordability of homes. Also need to state how successful the employment led approach has been.

1. North Somerset Local Plan 2036: Issues and Options Document Local Housing Growth Settlement Hierarchy Q8. What are your views on the options for a revised settlement hierarchy?

  • Comment ID: 21472417//5
A review of the contribution that smaller settlements can make is welcomed. A combination of all options should be applied to ensure that settlements are not unnecessarily constrained. For instance settlements that are located close to major towns, cities or where services are shared should be assessed on their own merits rather than simply grouped into a standardised hierarchy.
