No, apart from reducing the number of proposed households dramatically and spreading them around the village area rather than focusing on a single “housing estate”, the only option I support for accommodating strategic growth within Backwell is the Village Neighbourhood Plan. I would suggest that reassessing greenbelt allocations at “The Vale” would be a far more effective way to meet national homebuilding targets.
