Core Strategy - Consultation Draft Chapter 3: Spatial Policies Delivering Strong and Inclusive Communities CS14: Distribution of New Housing CS14: Distribution of New Housing

The policy should include the urban extension areas proposed so that this policy can be properly and logically related to policy CS13. As stated in comments upon the previous policy, the proposals relating to Clevedon/Nailsea/Portishead should permit a greater scale of residential development than that proposed.

Some service villages lie within flood risk areas and are likely to fall within functional floodplain areas. NSC should influence the infill development of the service villages by applying their SFRA Level 1 and 2 to ensure sound decisions are made in the Core Strategy. In these areas it will be necessary to apply the Sequential Test to all infill sites. Conversions are exempt; NSC should formulate a policy controlling the types of development to reduce vulnerability.

Policy CS14 is deemed unsound due to the omission of the SWBUE which itself is a key location for new residential development, the distribution strategy is flawed. As there is a forecast need to justify the SWBUE, failure to make such provision will inevitably lead to future development pressures on the SSCTs and larger towns which cannot be accommodated, thus the original requirement for the SWBUE.

The policy should not contain the urban extension areas. Service villages and small settlements should be allowed a greater amount of development in accordance with the RSS and to mitigate for shortfalls elsewhere. The net density target of 40dph is supported. Settlement boundaries should be amended to allow for additional development and should not be deleted.

1.CS14 should not exclude urban extension areas. 2.Difficult to reconcile figure of 3,000 dwellings for Weston urban area. 3.Should propose greater scale of development for Clevedon/Nailsea/Portishead 4 Scale of development proposed for Service Villages and small settlements is very restricted. Need for flexibility re pdl. 6.Target for net density of 40 dpha is supported 7.Settlement boundaries will need amending accordingly. 8 Deletion of all other settlement boundaries inappopriate.

Policy should include the urban extension. The proposals relating to Clevedon/Nailsea/Portishead should permit a greater scale of residential development than that proposed. The scale of development proposed to be permitted in respect of the Service Villages and small settlements is too restrictive. Target for net density of 40 dpha is supported need emphasis on range. settlement boundaries will need to be amended. Deletion of all other settlement boundaries is considered unnecessary.

The policy should include the urban extension areas. It is difficult to reconcile the figure of 3,000 dwellings quoted for Weston-super-Mare. Proposals relating to Clevedon/Nailsea/Portishead should permit a greater scale of residential development than that proposed. The scale of development proposed to be permitted in respect of the Service Villages and small settlements is very restricted as drafted. Net density of 40 dpha is supported. Settlement boundaries will need to be amended.

The policy should include and not exclude the urban extension areas proposed. It is difficult to reconcile the figures. The proposals relating to Clevedon/Nailsea/Portishead should permit a greater scale of residential development than that proposed. Equally, the scale of development proposed to be permitted in respect of the Service Villages and small settlements is very restricted. The target for net density of 40 dpha is supported.settlement boundaries will need to be amended accordingly.

To rely on the Weston Urban Extension and South West Bristol Urban Extension to supply 70% of the housing is unsound. This needs an unreasonably high build-rate on two large and controversial sites. Clevedon, Nailsea and Portishead account for some 30% of the population of North Somerset. Severely limiting the growth of these towns will lead to the loss of employment and community land to residential use, leading to more out-commuting and less self-containment. The strategy is therefore unsound.
