Sites and Policies Plan Consultation Draft Living within Environmental Limits DM3-8

  • Comment ID: 8142593//1
  • Status: Accepted
Policy DM7: Archaeology The policy states that where there is 'good reason to believe' that development proposals could affect archaeological remains, the Local Planning Authority (LPA) will seek a 'field evaluation' to establish the extent and importance of the remains 'before the planning application is determined'. This approach could result in a requirement for field evaluations to be undertaken without due cause, and delays in the determination of applications where a planning condition w

Policy DM73: Local Green Space The Proposals Map and Schedule 5 identify land at Farleigh Fields, Backwell as a proposed Local Green Space (LGS). The land was not previously identified or protected in the Replacement Local Plan as amenity space, but has been identified by the Parish Council as part of the emerging Neighbourhood Plan process. We would, however, support the designation of part of the site as a LGS, broadly in line with the area identified in the Sites and Policies Plan Consultati

Sites and Policies Plan Consultation Draft Transport DM27

  • Comment ID: 8142593//2
  • Status: Accepted
Policy DM27: Bus Accessibility Criteria It should not be a policy requirement for all residential development comprising 10 or more dwellings to be within a maximum of 400 m of a bus stop via a direct pedestrian route. Whilst sustainable development is encouraged, including appropriate access to bus services, Policy DM27 is too specific and onerous in its requirements. This should be identified as good practice and an aspiration/target at most, rather than an absolute policy requirement. This i

Policy PH3: Proposed Railway Stations and Transport Infrastructure for the Portishead to Bristol Railway Line We support the reopening of the Portishead to Bristol railway line and agree with the safeguarding of appropriate sites/land on the Proposals Map. Of the locations safeguarded for the Portishead Railway Station we believe that the Harbour Road or Quays Avenue sites would be preferable.

Policy DM33: Settlement Boundaries The settlement boundaries shown on the Proposals Map should be amended in relation to Portishead and Backwell. The Backwell settlement boundary should be amended to include land at Farleigh Road, which is considered suitable for mixed use development (including residential). The Portishead boundary should be amended to include land south of Sheepway, which is considered suitable for residential development. Both sites are considered in more detail below.

Sites and Policies Plan Consultation Draft Development Management Policies SP1

  • Comment ID: 8142593//11
  • Status: Accepted
Proposed New Allocation - Land South of Sheepways The Sites and Policies Plan Consultation Draft identifies no new housing sites in Portishead over the plan period - beyond those sites that have planning permission but are not yet completed, or are carried forward from the previous plan. This failure to provide for new housing development at Portishead will see insufficient growth to meet the requirements of the settlement over the plan period. The NPPF requires LPA's to positively seek opport

  • Comment ID: 8142593//4
  • Status: Accepted
Policy DM34: Housing Allocations As noted above, the current Core Strategy housing requirement is subject to review as a result of the recent High Court judgement and the subsequent remission of several policies. It is, therefore, likely that the requirement will need to be revisited and further housing allocations identified. Notwithstanding this, the current target should be seen as a minimum and in light of the NPPF there is a need to plan positively for appropriate growth. Additional sites

  • Comment ID: 8142593//5
  • Status: Accepted
Policy DM35: Housing Type and Mix Whilst it is recognised that residential schemes over 100 units should include a range of building types and tenures, it should be noted that not all schemes will be suitable to support small-scale builders, individually designed homes and self-build schemes. This should be reflected in the policy wording, stating that this will be sought where appropriate to the individual development.
