To ensure that as much of the site as possible is retained for employment use, we would wish to see various amendments made to the policies contained within the consultation draft document. In light of the points made above, please see our comments set out in relation to specific policies below:


DM 33 – Settlement Boundaries:



We acknowledge the adjustment to the Bleadon settlement boundary at Bleadon Quarry. This is acceptable only if employment use is protected on the site. If it is considered that there is a need to plan for new housing in Bleadon to meet the requirements of Core Strategy policy CS14, then this would be more appropriately met through amendments to the settlement boundary elsewhere. The release of small scale green field sites for this purpose might be most appropriate and more deliverable.
