Given that additional land may need to be allocated for residential development following the re-examination of CS13, we consider it premature to allocate any of the land at Weston-super-Mare as Strategic Gap until a final decision is taken in relation to the scale of new housing in the district. Accordingly, the Strategic Gap allocation at Weston-super-Mare should be deleted from the draft Plan pending a final decision on Policy CS13. Even if the Council does not accept that the Strategic Gap

The Core Strategy (Policy CS19) defines strategic gaps as important areas between settlements or parts of settlements aimed at maintaining local character and distinctiveness. The intention of the policy is to prevent the erosion of such areas by inappropriate development. We submit that the open area of land to the south of Laneys Drove/A371; west of Locking and east of Oaktree Park is not an important open area, nor is it important to the character or distinctiveness of the area. In fact, par

Draft Policy DM48 relates to Strategic Gaps and does not fit within the requirements of the NPPF and presents an unnecessary and unjustified designation. It has been created with no consideration of clearly defined criteria or evidence based background for the creation of this designation. The strategic gaps as shown on the proposals map have no coherent function or apparent methodology to the designation of those areas proposed. The proposed designation south of Nailsea follows landownership p

The principle of maintaining a strategic gap between Nailsea and Backwell has always been supported by the planning authority and the Town Council remains convinced that this should be achieved through a Green Belt designation. This piece of land, to the south of the town and vital in maintaining the physical separation of Nailsea and Backwell, has been under development pressure for more than 25 years. The Town Council thinks that the designation of this area as a Strategic Gap is inadequate i

Yatton Parish Council wished to request that a strategic gap be created starting at Arnolds Way for the North End of the village. There is one between Congresbury and Yatton and Claverham and Cleeve and the Council do not wish to see further development sprawl at North End that could link to Kingston and Kenn in the future.

Confirmation is sought that Green Belt status will give adequate protection from encroachment from Bristol without the need for additional protection by the designation of a strategic gap.

We are concerned about the proposed strategic gap at Nailsea , we would like to see it expanded to cover the land behind "The Uplands" that leads down to "Youngwood Lane."
