1. North Somerset Local Plan 2036: Issues and Options Document Bristol Airport Q38. What are your thoughts on the four proposed options for a Bristol Airport policy in the new Local Plan 2036? Do you have a preferred option?

Option 1 is the only justifiable policy approach by NSC. This hasn’t prevented airport growth and, as suggested in the Plan document, BA has permitted development rights which facilitate development. Options which impact on third party land should not be contemplated at this stage.

1. North Somerset Local Plan 2036: Issues and Options Document Potential new policy areas Q45. Should a new policy require a significant increase in the use of renewable and low carbon energy generation?

  • Comment ID: 2670977//16
Although worthwhile, without more information it is difficult to see comment in detail on this proposal. The options would appear to be more on-site solar or an obligation to supply power through some off-site or distant green energy system. To offset the power needed there could be a higher standard of insulation specified.

1. North Somerset Local Plan 2036: Issues and Options Document Potential new policy areas Q52. What are your views on our proposed policy approach to electric vehicle charging points?

  • Comment ID: 2670977//22
Presumably the standards relate to new housing. There is also a need to consider charging provisions for existing properties, which might have access issues. I am aware of a house in a terrace where an electric vehicle is charged through a cable taken across the footway. As this is potentially hazardous, especially at night, some design standard is needed for any cable taken across the footway or other public space, whether at height or possibly through a below-ground channel or conduit.
