We support the identification of land for employment but do not expect this to greatly decrease the commuter traffic generated by this village that will be heading towards Bristol and Weston. Again there are few details of transport proposals for surrounding area which will be affected by this very large development. What happens if these employment options are not taken up by businesses and the issues document does not present any details on how businesses will be attracted apart from talking about links to the M5. The proposed exit and entrance on the M5 would also need to be improved to really attract new employment.


More detail on employment options needed.
