Locking Parklands will need to include appropriate retail development. The HCA notes that new retail proposals have to demonstrate that criteria are met, however, these criteria need to be brought in line with new guidance in PPS4, which removes the requirement to demonstrate 'need'. We reserve the opportunity to make further comments when the Weston Regeneration SPD is published.

The proposals for new District Centres to be planned as part of the WUE as contained in para 3.320 are broadly supported. These must be located in the locations shown on the key diagram for the WUE or else an objection is made.

Amend to reflect PPS4. Replacement wording suggested.

Broadly support. What policy initiatives might be introduced/funded to ensure retention of shops/services, especially if Wrington is to be a 'service village'? Retail hierarchy (local centres outside Weston) mentions 'town centre uses'. This needs clarification/definition. Accepting that 'retail and leisure provision to meet local need is a by-product of population growth' (3.325), or has been historically, in the case of 'service villages' it seems circumstances are now different.

The policy must be revised in light of PPS4, which amongst other changes, removes the test of need and replaces it with a more robust impact test. It must also be made clear what is referred to by 'town centre uses' and how the Core Strategy intends to approach office development. For example, Bristol Water's headquarters are not within a centre, and the expansion or future redevelopment of this site must not be precluded by the Core Strategy.

The retail and town centre policies should reflect the objectives and principles of PPS4 (December 2009), superseding PPS6.

Supports provision of retail facilities at an appropriate scale which supports communities and reduces the need to travel by car. Seeks reassurance that provision will be commensurate to the size of the settlement or new development, and is also in accordance with retail guidance in PPS4 so as not to create new destinations in their own right. Background text to the policy will need to be updated in light of the recent publication of PPS4 which replaces PPS6.

How do we tackle unfair competition from supermarkets and their increasing number of satellite stores? Prosperous economy should surely look at the smaller local businesses too. We should keep local 'village' areas in the town different to town centre and keep out chain stores this would create more interesting shopping locations and improve community feel.

Retail and other facilities are essential for improving self containment. Town centres, particularly Weston, should be improved/expanded but provision of space on the edge of urban areas can make them more attractive. Only by making every centre attractive will car use be reduced. In service villages, small scale, but modern, convenience stores whilst possibly causing closure of village shops will in the long run reduce travel. In preparing CS daughter documents, NSC should bear this in mind.
