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: 21503905//3
We would strongly support the provision of high-quality employment land being allocated and specifically identified on land between the garden village and the motorway to the west of Summer Lane. We do however, consider that this area should extend north to maximise the use of this area, which is well placed in respect of existing transport infrastructure, such as the Banwell Bypass and new M5 junction.

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: 21503905//2
We support the general suggested location for the Garden Village, to the north west of Banwell and the vision for a separate settlement, which has its own character and sense of place. We agree that the site is well positioned to achieve a sustainable new community which meets housing and employment land need within North Somerset, but also the wider area.

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: 21503905//5
We consider that land between Summer Lane and the M5 should be allocated as part of the Garden Village development. Our suggested amendments to the masterplan for the Garden Village proposes that additional land be earmarked for employment use and potentially some housing. Additionally, this extra land lends itself to providing supporting infrastructure, including water attenuation, noise bunds, and to provide strategic ecological mitigation.

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.

The Hayes family own part of the land currently earmarked for development as part of this proposal (‘The Hayes Land’), as show in Figure 2 in section 2 of the attached document. We strongly support the strategic development location proposed at Banwell within the emerging JSP and suggest that the land identified in Figures 2 and 3 should be included within the allocation as part of this Garden Village proposal in the emerging Local Plan.

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: 21503905//4
To accommodate future growth, we would support alternative scenario 1 as it is outside the floodplain and would retain a separation between the proposed Garden Village and the existing settlement of Banwell. Again, we contend that in order to support the current strategic development requirements, as well as any future expansion, sufficient land needs to be allocated at this stage to provide supporting infrastructure.
