Comment

The advantages and disadvantages for the options have been clearly expressed and are agreed.

The following comments from the published feedback from the Nailsea Urban Extension Workshop held on 20 November 2018 are agreed:

 That there will be a genuine mix of housing types and tenures including more affordable homes for young people and young families.

 The Elms has a mix of housing styles, has social housing and play areas – good example of mix of housing types and tenures.

 Need to have different developers so there is a diversity of design.

 It is important to have green space that is easy to access. A main attraction of North Somerset is the ease of access to beautiful countryside.

 Fear that the new development would create ‘urban sprawl’ which would make access to the countryside more difficult.

 Need a local centre/central community meeting space in new development as a focal point; this should be built at the beginning.

It is recommended that consideration should be given to the examples of greenfield developments shortlisted for RIBA awards with appropriate facilities. For these reasons Option 4 is preferred.
