My main concern at this stage is that this consultation is premature.  It is not appropriate for North Somerset Council to conduct a consultation when very significant issues have yet to be addressed through the joint Spatial Plan (JSP) process and formal examination. It is wrong to predict or presuppose the outcome of the JSP examination by the Independent Inspectors.  This consultation makes assumptions about the number and location of additional housing, the sanctity of the green belt and new roads that are being challenged by very many respondents to earlier consultation and brought to the attention of the ongoing examination by the Inspectors.

I object to this consultation taking place before the Independent Inspectors have reported.
