Recent planning decisions show that economic development in the countryside is a challenge; currently, change of use from business to residential is being granted where business opportunities are not being taken up (eg Mill lane, Congresbury) Realistically, using previously developed land for residential needs to take into account that residents will travel to work, and therefore should only be allowed where transport infrastructure exists.

Brown Land. Rural housing on brown field land should be supported even when in the Green Belt. One example is Gatcombe Farm in Wrington.

All brownfield sites are in principle suitable for residential development, subject to tests for contamination

Whilst the redevelopment of previously developed land is a welcomed principle a general relaxation to allow residential development as proposed could cause problems by further eroding the countryside and we do not support it However, we do support its use for the provision of economic development and community facilities that are well related to settlements

The use of previously developed land for community facilities is supported. In some cases, and particularly in the green belt, such land, where it was previously used for agriculture should be returned to agricultural use. An example would be where agricultural land in the green belt has been used for sports facilities and these are moved or no longer required. This should not be an opportunity to “manufacture “brown field land in the green belt.
