The Council’s primary concern at Nailsea and Backwell appears to relate to the way in which the SDL will take shape. We are broadly supportive of an SDL being identified and consider it appropriate location given the scale and role of Nailsea.

3.6 We would suggest that the requirement to deliver a strategic level of growth, the existing commitments set out in the development plan and the constrained nature of both settlements (namely in Green Belt and ecological terms), means that there is limited scope for additional sites to be identified in this location.
