This policy is unworkable on the grounds that the proposed safeguarding affects the gardens of private dwellings and, in some locations, the dwellings themselves. Some commercial properties are also affected. This would lead to blight and, potentially, render some properties unsaleable thereby exposing the Council to claims for compensation under ss. 149 - 171 of the Town & Country Planning Act 1990.

It is recommended that the proposed safeguarding is deleted in respect of that part of the Weston Railway Loop which lies to the west of the M5 Motorway (and in any other location where blight may occur).
