At this stage we have reservations about the practical implementation of the proposed options for the hierarchy given previous approaches by the Council to allocate or allow disproportionally high levels of residential developments in smaller lower tier settlements ahead of the larger towns identified in the hierarchy. Clevedon is a prime example of significant under provision compared to significantly smaller settlements such as Yatton.

Reservations about implementation of proposed options as smaller lower tier settlements have seen high levels of developments ahead of larger towns - Clevedon being prime example.
