Core Strategy - Consultation Draft Chapter 4: Area Policies CS33: Smaller Settlements and Countryside CS33: Smaller Settlements and Countryside

Residential development should still be allowed in villages with settlement boundaries. Reference to employment development should now be reviewed and replaced by wording in accordance with PPS4.The requirement that employment development will not be permitted in the open countryside should be deleted.The absence of any reference to conversions in the rural areas in the proposed policy is surprising and a clear omission that needs to be addressed.

CS33 as worded ignores coastal settlements and their role in tourism. It does not highlight support for tourist development most notably the regeneration of existing and established facilities. The policy should be reworded to permit the enhancement of tourism facilities in and adjoining smaller settlements particularly where they support the local and wider economy of North Somerset.

Although the Council is in favour of the move to concentrate any infill housing in the service villages rather than smaller villages such as Cleeve; it is concerned about the removal of settlement areas around smaller villages.

Need to consider the future of the Bleadon Quarry site. Bleadon settlement boundary should be retained. Brownfield site, visually contained and would contribute to housing targets. Potential mixed-use opportunity. CS33 should recognise that sustainable communities can be created through positive planning. Site should be identified for mixed-use (residential/employment) via a bespoke policy or site allocation. Suggested site specific policy appended.

In order to safeguard landscape character, the following amendment is suggested to the policy wording:- Proposals for development within the rural areas outside the Service Villages will be strictly controlled in order to protect the character of both the settlements and the surrounding countryside and to prevent unsustainable development.

Policy CS33 is too restrictive and seeks to impose a blanket approach to the needs of the rural community, which of themselves are varied. Limited development in the rural areas outside the Service Villages should be assessed on its merits against demonstrable local needs and not simply washed over by a 'sweep up' policy.

The Parish Council wishes Kenn to keep its own identity and if the removal of the settlement boundary ensures that the area will be considered as open countryside with the presumption that there will be no large scale development then that is acceptable. It is noted that affordable housing would be permitted if a need for it arose.
