Core Strategy - Consultation Draft Chapter 3: Spatial Policies Living Within Environmental Limits CS6: North Somerset's Green Belt CS6: North Somerset's Green Belt

  • Comment ID: 2862209/CSCD/15
  • Status: Accepted
This policy reflects the value and importance of the Green Belt. Although we would recommend it include recognition of the positive role that Green Belts have to play in fulfilling a number of land use objectives as described in PPS2: Green Belts.

Seafront - It should be remembered that this is immediately adjacent to the Severn Estuary international site and all new development should be sensitive to the need to avoid damage or disturbance to the features for which the site has been designated.

  • Status: Accepted
Here, too, we trust that this policy applies to all forms of infrastructure, including green infrastructure. As is acknowledged elsewhere within the document, green infrastructure is as important as other forms of infrastructure and should be a key inclusion within any Infrastructure Delivery Plan.

  • Comment ID: 2862209/CSCD/17
  • Status: Accepted
We welcome, in principle, the various requirements and proposals in respect of alternative modes of transport since these have an important role to play in tackling climate change. The authority may wish to consider whether the plan could go still further in terms of "designing out" the private car.

Core Strategy - Consultation Draft Chapter 3: Spatial Policies Living Within Environmental Limits CS11: Parking CS11: Parking

  • Comment ID: 2862209/CSCD/18
  • Status: Accepted
We would urge the authority not to move away from attempting to "design out" the private car. If the focus on self containment and new travel management policies are at all effective they should surely reduce dependency on the private car resulting in less need for parking provision in the future.

  • Comment ID: 2862209/CSCD/19
  • Status: Accepted
We broadly agree with the scope of this emerging policy. High quality urban design has a key role in shaping sustainable places, encouraging healthy living and community wellbeing. The references to sustainable land use and sensitivity to local character are particularly welcome.

  • Comment ID: 2862209/CSCD/24
  • Status: Accepted
We support the intention to produce a Supplementary Planning Document (SPD) including a Master Plan, Design Codes and Delivery Plan. We trust that the natural environment will be an important consideration in these documents and look forward to working with the authority in relation to them.

  • Comment ID: 2862209/CSCD/20
  • Status: Accepted
The statement that new development "must not conflict" with environmental protection, Green Belt and nature conservation is welcome as is the requirement for any necessary mitigating or compensatory measures to address any adverse implications.

  • Comment ID: 2862209/CSCD/13
  • Status: Accepted
We agree that "a net loss of biodiversity should be avoided". However, to meet the requirements of PPS 9: Biodiversity and Geological Conservation we recommend " and a net increase in biodiversity should be achieved" after "a net loss of biodiversity should be avoided."
