The Mendip Spring Garden Village proposal:

2.4. Fails to offer joined up thinking:

2.4.1. Is not consistent with the JSP Technical Evidence Work consultation

released on 12th November relating to transport.

2.4.2. Has not considered the extremely important JSP Habitats Regulations

Assessments (Another reason why the consultation is premature).

2.4.3. The consultation documents for the Joint Transport Plan consultation do

not come out until January – after the I & O consultation is over.

(Another reason why the I and O consultation is premature)

2.5. Does not make it clear that this is NOT a consultation on the SDLs.

Summary 2-2.5 above

We have studied all the documentation. However, in light of the above, how can

the public (or even some councillors) who cannot study it, give informed

responses to the Issues and Options consultation?


The Mendip Garden Village proposal is inconsistent with JSP technical evidence on transport, has not considered JSP HRAs, and premature
