I do NOT agree with proposals to alter settlement boundaries. I draw your attention to North Somerset Council's Landscape Character guidelines.

The approach of Option 1 is supported as this allows for additional flexibility within the Plan period for non-strategic Windfall sites. Still carefully considered against other Development Management criterion as well as National guidance; development adjacent to Service Village boundaries is sustainable and similarly to the response above, provides the additional patronage for facilities and services within these important settlements.

Support review of Bleadon settlement boundary. Support Option 1 as it helps meet the government's pro-growth agenda and provides flexibility at a time where there is a significant under supply of housing. Should allow flexibility adjacent settlement boundaries in infill villages where it can be demonstrated that the site is sustainable.

Settlement boundaries should not represent an artificial constraint to the delivery of sustainable development. The location of a site outside but adjacent to a settlement does not render a site unsustainable. Settlements without a settlement boundary should not automatically be excluded from re-assessment in terms of their position in the hierarchy. Green Belt approach effectively stagnates settlements. This is inconsistent with NPPF paragraph 78. Need a positive policy framework.

Settlement boundaries need to be rigorously maintained to avoid North Somerset villages merging together.

Option 1 is only acceptable option.

In order to prevent ad hoc and inappropriate countryside development, our local settlement boundaries need to be rigorously maintained to avoid our local villages and hamlets merging together.

Option 1 Adjust Settlement Boundaries to include allocations and retain current policy – we agree and support this proposal. Forward plans for 20 years need to retain flexibility to deliver housing. Allocating housing adjacent the existing large towns with established services needs to be prioritised. It remains the most sustainable and rapid solution to the housing land shortfall. Opportunity to adjust the existing settlement boundaries should be focused upon ahead of any new garden villages.

Settlement boundaries need to be rigorously maintained to avoid North Somerset villages merging together, prevent ad hoc, inappropriate development of greenfield sites and to preserve the character/landscape of individual villages. NSC’s own Landscape Character Supplementary guidelines support this view.

8.1. Settlement boundaries should be retained. Currently planning applications are being granted that are adjacent to settlement boundaries. When does ‘adjacent’ become ‘sprawl’ as the next application which is near to the one that is adjacent to the village boundary becomes adjacent to the new boundary created by the new development!
