DM 35 – Housing Mix and Type

Under the Background heading this “policy seeks to set out what is meant by the term ‘mixed and balanced community’ within theNorth Somersetcontext”.  However, the policy does not succeed in this task. i) The policy refers to employment lead regeneration in Weston but fails to mention the self-containment that the core strategy requires elsewhere.  ii) No guidance is given on the means of assessing imbalance of various types.
