Site Allocations Plan - Main Modifications Consultation MM16

Old Mill Rd development is NOT NEEDED. There is no road infrastructure to support the increase in housing. Including M5 access. There is no planned increase in schools or health care provision for the increase in population. There is NO guarantee of the rail link being constructed to Portishead, it is at consultation phase. There is no guarantee that so called "major retailers" will locate in the development. Other failures (Dolphin Sq in WSM) bare testament to this. The viable and valuable

I cannot understand how the Old Mill Road site has been allowed to have its employment criteria changed from an industrial site of skilled, well paid, full time work, which can enjoy mortgage opportunities, to mixed employment covering the part time, low paid, unskilled occupations such as retailing leisure, cafes, bars and restaurants. These occupations, sadly, will not have the disposable income to make much contribution to Portishead. As suppliers to the Retail and Catering industries we are

I wish to object strongly to the proposal to turn Old Mill Road Portishead into a retail park with over 300 houses. DO YOU REALLY WANT TO COMPLETELY GRID LOCK PORTISHEAD. Its bad enough getting in and out now I shudder think what it would be like if this proposal goes ahead. The events during the last 2 weeks should be enough to convince you that to introduce a potential of an extra 700 cars into the already grid locked one way street into our town.is very very bad news. PLEASE STOP THIS MADNE

I am writing to express my concern at the Standard Life Investment Co. proposal to replace the existing 20 or so businesses in Old Mill Road with large retail units and 350 houses. This would replace some 370 mainly skilled jobs with a smaller number of lower paid semi and unskilled ones. Some existing companies provide training for apprentices in skilled work - this proposal would reduce the local availability for such training. We already have sufficient shopping facilities both in Portishead

I hope that you take notice of the people of Portishead for a change!!! as you don't appear too in the past. How on earth can you prefer to build more houses on Old Mill Road instead of leaving things as they are. The population of this town is growing at an alarming rate and you don't appear to worry about it. There are enough problems getting in and out of Portishead without stupid ideas of making the situation worse!!! or are you councillors blind to the situation and could not care less abou

I wish to state my support for saving Old Mill Road for the local enterprises which are currently there and serve the town of Portishead and employ many people. I do not want more housing built in a part of town which is in the heart of the community. It will further add to make the local roads more chaotic and drain other resources such as schools and doctors. We need more local businesses in our town and fewer chain stores. I urge you to consider any plans carefully. Kind regards Sarah Ma

I would like to express my complete objection to the redevelopment plans for Old Mill Road. Portishead cannot cope with any more housing. We do not have the current infrastructure in place to be able to cope with any further additional housing or traffic and what that subsequently brings ie even more pressure on school places, doctors etc. The businesses currently on Old Mill Road provide jobs and income and we should be looking to secure these not take them away. The Council has to refuse this

Dear North Somerset Planning Does North Somerset have a Planning Policy for Portishead? Sites designated for employment are released for more housing because businesses cannot be found to relocate to Portishead because of the inadequate transport links. Businesses located in Portishead are forced to close to release more sites for housing. For a town with insufficient school places for its population because the local authority cannot provide more schools. For a town with inadequate transpo

You are doubtless already deluged with emails on this topic. However, I'd like to add my objection to any redevelopment of Old Mill Ed in Portishead. Decent jobs in Portishead is vital if we are to be a distinct and cohesive town rather than a commuter town for Bristol. Getting rid of 300 job would be crazy and only benefit the land owners profits. I'd add that additional traffic in/out of Portishead is also not acceptable. In particular we still have no firm commitment to the rail link we exp

I would like to register my opposition to the plans to redevelop old mill road. All the businesses along the road are unique within the town and offer a service that couldnt be done elsewhere in the town as there are no alternative sites. Also as a business owner on the high street my opinion is that the new retail units will on detract peoples attention from the already quiet high street and will certainly have a detrimental effect. We will not only loose the businesses on Old Mill Road but als
