Sites and Policies Plan Consultation Draft Delivering Strong and Inclusive Communities DM35

  • Comment ID: 8142177//6
  • Status: Accepted
Policy DM35: Housing Type and Mix To ensure that a range and choice of new housing types is available, and indeed 'deliverable' within the Plan period, it is essential to ensure that a range and choice of sites is available on which to accommodate them. Choice of location is critical to delivering the housing requirements. This should be reflected in the policy and in the allocations that are made in accordance with Policy DM34. The support for 'aspirational housing' should apply more widely

  • Status: Accepted
Policy DM50: Allocated and safeguarded B1, B2 and B8 use class sites This policy would seem to be inconsistent with the broad definition of 'economic development' set out in Annex 2 of the NPPF, with the Government commitment to securing economic growth set out in paragraphs 18-22 of the Framework, and with the soundness test for the Plan to be 'positively prepared' (para. 182). By restricting proposals on the allocated sites to uses within classes B1, B2 or B8 the Council is potentially dete

Sites and Policies Plan Consultation Draft Retailing, Town, District and Local Centres DM64-69

  • Comment ID: 8142177//8
  • Status: Accepted
Policy DM65: Retail Development outside defined centres Clarification should be introduced to the policy to make it clear that the restriction on floorspace and requirements for sequential assessment will not preclude new retail developments above the thresholds coming forward as part of the planned urban extensions.

Sites and Policies Plan Consultation Draft Living within Environmental Limits DM9

  • Comment ID: 8142177//9
  • Status: Accepted
Policy DM9: Nature Conservation This policy should be worded to reflect the balanced approach that is necessary towards reconciling the objective to protect biodiversity with meeting the needs for development. In some circumstances this may mean accepting a significant adverse impact on biodiversity. The requirement to demonstrate 'overriding' need for development where significant adverse impact occurs implies a negative presumption against development. This should not necessarily be the cas

Sites and Policies Plan Consultation Draft Living within Environmental Limits DM11

  • Comment ID: 8142177//10
  • Status: Accepted
Policy DM11: Landscape Similarly to biodiversity (see comments in relation to Policy DM9 above), a balanced approach should be taken to reconciling the interests of landscape protection with the need to meet requirements for development in sustainable locations. The skeleton policy provisions seem to assume a more balanced approach than those relating to biodiversity. However, it will be necessary to accommodate urban extensions outside existing urban limits in order to meet the district's d

Sites and Policies Plan Consultation Draft Transport DM25

  • Comment ID: 8142177//11
  • Status: Accepted
Policy DM25: Public rights of way, pedestrian and cycle access The objective to promote accessibility through maintaining public rights of way is supported. However, the emerging policy is potentially onerous in restricting development to that which would not, inter alia , reduce amenity and requiring replacement facilities to be no less aesthetically attractive. These are inherently subjective criteria which could prove difficult to comply with where urban extensions are proposed since the

  • Status: Accepted
Policy DM33: Settlement boundaries The list of settlement boundary changes should include adjustment to the boundary at Nailsea to include land to the south-west of Nailsea between the existing urban boundary and Youngwood Lane (see response to Policy DM34 above for full details).

Sites and Policies Plan Consultation Draft Transport DM27

  • Comment ID: 8142177//12
  • Status: Accepted
Policy DM27: Bus accessibility criteria If the requirement for development to be within a maximum of 400 metres from a bus stop is to be included in the policy it should be established as a 'target', similarly to the bus service frequency, rather than an absolute requirement which would render a proposal contrary to the provisions of the Development Plan if it is not achieved. It is germane that this requirement derives from national and regional guidance that has now been superseded, and do
