In respect of point 2) the words "delivered early in the development" should be deleted as this will be an unrealistic proposition in many instances due to viability considerations. In respect of point 8) there should be greater flexibility than is implied by simply prioritising previously developed land in this way.

The general requirements for residential development to achieve the Building for Life Gold standard is considered to be unreasonable unless it is subject to consideration of the broader viability of such development.

The requirement for 82% : 18% split as proposed in the wording should be more flexible so as to permit a wider range of permutations. The proposed imposition of a financial contribution towards the provision of affordable housing on sites of less than 15 dwellings (or sites of less than 0.5 ha) is unreasonable.

Yatton should be considered to be a market town the subject of this policy. Land on the north west side of Yatton is available and would be suitable for development should it be required to meet some element of the strategic development needs of the district.

Greater flexibility needs to be incorporated within the wording of the policy. The Council already knows that viability is a key issue particularly with the WUE. The requirements in items 2, 3 & 4 under this policy are demanding particularly in the light of the present economic circumstances.

The restriction on affordable housing sites under this policy (in rural exceptions and allocated sites) not to be permitted should be deleted. The present requirements as set out in Policy H/5 of the current Replacement Local Plan should continue to prevail.

  • Status: Accepted
In light of the representations made under policies CS13, CS14 and CS20, the policy should be amended to permit an increased level of both housing and employment development than the very limited extent currently envisaged under the proposed policy.

The area of search to be the whole of North Somerset should be amended to say that with regard to the Service Villages it is the Service Village and its immediate environs and economic hinterland that is the relevant area of search. In respect of 2) any Council land so identified must have already been formally declared to be surplus and be genuinely available for purchase by private treaty.

  • Status: Accepted
Irrespective of the Council's political position in respect of the SWBUE there is no reasoned justification with regard to the planning considerations to be applied that support any reduction in the total number of dwellings to be provided in the District under this policy.

  • Status: Accepted
The proposed policy should be deleted as it is tantamount to introducing green belt restrictions in areas without the need to justify same in planning terms. Either the land is worthy of green belt status or else it remains countryside; the policy should be deleted.
