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.

We broadly agree with the content of this emerging policy and agree that sustainability should be a key principle of urban design.

Greater flexibility needs to be incorporated within the wording of the policy. The requirements in items 2, 3 & 4 under this policy are demanding particularly in the light of the present economic circumstances.

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.

Greater flexibility needs to be incorporated within the wording of the policy. The requirements in items 2, 3 & 4 under this policy are demanding particularly in the light of the present economic circumstances. Viability is the key consideration if the scale of both economic and residential development required for this District is to be achieved and the wording should be amended accordingly.

Point 3 - Whilst it is encouraging to see Code for Sustainable Homes levels 4 and above for residential developments, a phased approach would be more suitable (i.e. by 2015 all new developments greater than 10 dwellings to be Level 4, beyond 2015 all new developments must meet level 5/6). If North Somerset is striving to achieve zero carbon for new homes by 2016, then the policy of Code 4 homes for greater than 10 dwellings will become obsolete by 2016.
