Site Allocations Plan - Main Modifications Consultation MM14

  • Comment ID: 11517761//1
Thank you for consulting us on the Proposed Modifications for the North Somerset Site Allocations Plan: further residential site assessments. I can confirm that our comments made last year (attached) still stand with the additional comment below. The Site called 'Land north of Youngwood Lane, Nailsea' is near to Grants Mill level crossing which is a public footpath crossing at MLN1 127m 02ch. The speed of the trains on this section of the railway travel at 100mph with approximately 100 passenge

If additional housing is forced upon the council for Nailsea, it is imperative that the council takes action to keep and secure existing open space accessible for both existing and additional Nailsea residents: Site Allocations Plan examination: further residential site assessments Further to earlier comments submitted to the Inspector and to North Somerset Council on 18 August 2017, I believe that Youngwood Lane should not be included as an additional site for reasons previously stated in res

For all the reasons described in the earlier consultations, the development of Youngwood Lane should not be considered at this juncture. The adjacent highway network is entirely unsatisfactory, already presenting worryingly unsafe driving conditions. Further, Nailsea's current infrastructure, services and employment provisions are all woefully inadequate for such a significant population increase. However, should the Council continue to remain mindful of supporting this site, then, by way of co

Further to our earlier comments submitted to the Inspector and to North Somerset Council on 18 August 2017, we believe that Youngwood Lane should not be included as an additional site for the reasons previously stated. However, if Youngwood Lane is to be added as an additional allocated site, then we suggest that, as previously requested, the Land South of the Uplands should be removed. With the inclusion of Youngwood Lane the Uplands site represents a very small proportion of the allocation at

My view with regard to this development is based on the problems relating to the poor road system in gaining access to the A370. The lanes around Chelvey Church are dangerous when their is likely to be an extra 1000 plus cars using these lanes. However if Yougwood Lane is to be added the land south of the Uplands should be removed as it only represents 50 dwellings. I still contend that this land is Public Open Space following the purchase of the lane by Woodspring Council in 1976. This land was

Nailsea Town Council understands the purpose of the document, to meet the Inspector's requirement for additional housing, but it objects to 170 homes at Youngwood Lane as this is contrary to current Town Council policy. The Town Council re-emphasises the need for comprehensive strategic planning for the whole town. This would include a review of the Green Belt, with the objective of realigning the current boundary and increasing the overall area of land designated as Green Belt.

The development of the land to the south of Nailsea within the boundary of Youngwood Lane is a sensible option and over time could supply in excess of 4,000 residences in North Somerset, the only obvious problem is the road infrastructure which would need considerable upgrading to accommodate the number of vehicles this would generate. This proposal makes more sense than the current proposal to build almost 200 houses on Engine Lane which might actually be useful as a future relief road on the W
