1. North Somerset Local Plan 2036: Issues and Options Document Potential new policy areas Q47. Where a new policy sets a % reduction in carbon emissions, if it is deemed this cannot be met on-site, should it introduce a mechanism to collect off-site carbon-emission payments?

Yes, carbon reductions should be met at or near the site wherever possible.

1. North Somerset Local Plan 2036: Issues and Options Document Potential new policy areas Q54. Are there any other policy areas you feel need to be considered – either new policies, or amendments to an existing policy?

Education land for mainstream/special education needs should be identified and land allocated. Eg there is an acute need for additional special education needs development in North Somerset. Live-work units need a stand-alone policy and should be encouraged - would underpin sustainable living patterns and provide opportunities to support and maintain rural vitality. Care Homes – dementia care, general elderly care and assisted living together with retirement villages - needs policy/allocations.

1. North Somerset Local Plan 2036: Issues and Options Document Introduction How the housing requirement will be met:

  • Comment ID: 20338913//47
The emerging housing requirement data on page 10 of the Residential Land Survey evidence base paper is used to predict a 5.2 year supply based on the emerging JSP requirement. From the evidence provided by Industry during the examination of the extant Site Allocations Plan in 2017, that figure is likely to be disputed and is not agreed.

The landscape report prepared by Wardell Armstrong for NSC has been reviewed by The Landmark Practice and a response to its findings is set out in Appendix A. The Landmark Practice undertook a detailed analysis of the land at Black Rock (SHLAA Ref: HE18124) in both summer and winter conditions and their full report is also contained in Appendix A. They reached a different and positive conclusion regarding the site and land to the North of Hollis Avenue (paras 6.4.21).

North Somerset Strategic Housing Land Availability Assessment The approach taken to Land Availability Assessment by NSC has already been set out in detail. Our primary concern is that of the land identified and entered into the forward plan process, most sites have been discounted without full and proper wide ranging testing. That does not lead to robust plan making and is considered unsound.

  • Comment ID: 20338913//45
Flood risk is a primary consideration. Should not discount Green Belt.
