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.

This policy should be reviewed to take on the new advice and policy guidance set out in PPS4 recently published, in particular policy EC7 therein relating to the planning of tourism in rural areas. It should be made clear that tourism and appropriate leisure uses will not be precluded from any areas the subject of proposals in policy CS19.

In so prioritising the numbered points these should be applied having regard to both the need for flexibility and to reach a balanced conclusion in relation to all of the policy considerations associated with any planning application under consideration.

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. There is a lack of clear guidance upon the appropriate criteria that would be used to make any such assessment and where this would differ from the countryside policies alone.

The requirements of this policy must be subject to the viability considerations of the proposed development.

In the third sentence of the first paragraph of this policy its meaning is unclear, by virtue of its grammatical construction, and it should therefore be deleted. All the requirements of this policy should again be subject to viability considerations and the wording amended accordingly.

The removal of 9,000 dwelling urban extension at south west Bristol is not adequately justified. The approach adopted of not providing for this shortfall throughout the rest of the district is unviable. The viability of Clevedon, Nailsea and Portishead and the service villages is completely disregarded, leaving them to stagnate, unable to maintain the level of services needed.

Health Impact Assessments should not be required as part of the planning application stage, adding to the already significant front-end loading (and costs) of information sought by local planning authorities. There should also be a clear definition as to what these will comprise. The requirement in point 2) of the proposed policy must be subject to the viability considerations of the proposed development.

In respect of the sub-heading of "Masterplanning" the first sentence is an isolated statement without reasoned justification and should be deleted.

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. Point 8) there should be greater flexibility than is implied by simply prioritising previously developed land in this way. For instance, an element of greenfield development may actually be a more sustainable and resource efficient option for the phasing of development and thereby enhance the viability of schemes.
