Core Strategy - Consultation Draft Chapter 3: Spatial Policies Living Within Environmental Limits CS2: Delivering Sustainable Design and Construction CS2: Delivering Sustainable Design and Construction

It is not realistic to expect all developments of 10 or more dwellings to achieve a figure of 15%, without taking account of feasibility and viability on a site by site basis. It is also noted that this figure goes beyond the requirements of the emerging RSS.Code Level 4, and higher on developments of 10 or more dwellings is not realistic and account should be taken of current national standards and feasibility and viability on a site by site basis.

By implementing such a policy, however, the Core Strategy must recognise that some development will be required on greenfield sites within, and adjoining, the main towns and service villages.Re-emphasise that there is no policy backing, at a regional or national level, for designating new Green Belt land purely to compensate for other areas that are being removed from the designation.

Policies should encourage appropriate development in service villages that can bring forward wider benefits to the local community (including the surrounding rural settlements that draw on the facilities Support the inclusion of Backwell and Congresbury among the identified service villages available).

There appears to be some inconsistency between points 1 and 2 included under Policy CS1. To address this point 2 should also include reference to 'where feasible and viable'

Core Strategy - Consultation Draft Chapter 1: Introduction Relationship to the Regional Spatial Strategy

  • Comment ID: 3361153/CSCD/1
  • Status: Accepted
The soundness of the Core Strategy, is called into question given that the Council has not worked to the levels set out in the emerging South West RSS, namely 26,750. By failing to include the urban extension to South West Bristol and instead working towards a requirement of 17,750 the Core Strategy is not consistent with regional policy.The Core Strategy should also treat the requirements for the Weston SSCT and the 'remainder of North Somerset separately.

Core Strategy - Consultation Draft Chapter 1: Introduction What stage has the Core Strategy reached?

  • Comment ID: 3361153/CSCD/2
  • Status: Accepted
It is noted that it is now expected that the Core Strategy will be adopted in July 2012 rather than May 2010 as originally intended. It is important that the Core Strategy takes account of the potential impact of this delay on the development options put forward.

We support the Council's intention to seek to ensure a genuine mix of housing types within existing and future communities. To achieve this, the Core Strategy must allow for sufficient new development in the main towns and service villages.

  • Status: Accepted
To see affordable housing being delivered on the ground, it is necessary to allow for an appropriate level of housing development in areas such as the service villages. Without new market led housing developments, affordable housing will simply not be built in these areas.

We support the recognition that outside of Nailsea, Clevedon and Nailsea, economic activity appropriate to the scale of the settlement should be approved where this leads to greater self-containment and stronger local communities.

Core Strategy - Consultation Draft Chapter 2: Visions and Objectives VIS 1: North Somerset Vision

  • Comment ID: 3361153/CSCD/3
  • Status: Accepted
The current reference to service villages in VIS1 is considered to be too narrow. The Council's vision should make specific reference to the service villages becoming more self-sufficient and balanced communities. This should reflect the vision set out in VIS6, which is addressed below
