HLM support the proposed SDLs at Nailsea and Backwell, which offer opportunities for sustainable patterns of growth on land that is available and unconstrained by Green Belt and AONB. To further support the effectiveness and therefore soundness of these locations it should be anticipated that the Land East of Clevedon will also come forward as a strategic development location, given the cumulative benefits of a Clevedon-Nailsea-Backwell-Bristol corridor aligned with committed infrastructure enhancement which stands to boost interconnectivity between the sites and M5 J20. Indeed the Land East of Clevedon is crucial to unlocking the delivery of a potential J20 link to Nailsea and Backwell. Therefore, the Land East of Clevedon is considered to merit equal consideration with Nailsea and Backwell in terms of formulating a policy over the Local Plan process.

Summary
HLM support the proposed SDLs at Nailsea and Backwell, which offer opportunities for sustainable patterns of growth on land that is available and unconstrained by Green Belt and AONB.
