Weston-super-Mare town centre regeneration Draft SPD Introduction Overarching Principles and Priorities

  • Comment ID: 15972289//1
Would welcome the provision of student accommodation and housing sites exclusively allocated for affordable housing available on a to buy basis for the younger people of the district . This would not generate too much extra traffic congestion since students ,from what I have seen , do mostly use public transport and affordable housing for local people to buy would only replace the high cost / poor quality rented accommodation they have to live in at the moment. However, I feel that other 'gener

These representations are made on behalf of the Federation of Small Businesses (FSB). The Federation of Small Businesses (FSB) is an organisation formed in 1974 which represents 180,000 members nationally and c. 1150 in the Weston-Super-Mare branch, many of which are based within Weston-Super-Mare. In the FSB's 40-year history, the importance of the self-employed small and micro business to the economy is widely recognised as never having been greater. Small businesses have a huge amount to of

In general terms NSCP are very supportive of the proposals to redevelop the town centre; recognising the economic and social benefits that this will bring. NSCP would welcome the addition of an additional priority reflecting increasing the health and wellbeing of the population and community cohesion. This could further be supported by specifically mentioning the need for increased development of clinical facilities, and voluntary / community support financed by the Community Infrastructure Le

It is positive that point 6 highlights that active transport will be prioritised, It is positive that point 7 highlights that green space will be prioritised. Further emphasis could be given to development that promotes healthy lifestyles and social regeneration within existing community. A specific reference to the health and wellbeing needs of the population could be included, and reference to regeneration supporting a reduction in health inequality.

1 The following comments are submitted on behalf of Persimmon Homes Severn Valley (PHSV). 2 We welcome the publication of the SPD following the previous Prospectus for Change document. It is part of an ongoing process and the Prospectus for Change document has already resulted in new investment being attracted to the town centre, which has clearly kick started the process of regeneration. PHSV has been a major investor in Weston-super-Mare over a long period and supports the efforts of the Coun

I believe that a more pedestrian friendly housing, catering, retail and leisure inner zone, with the encouragement of more al fresco dining and recreational opportunities during the summer months, would benefit the town and would be an attraction to the increasing student and retired local population. I would propose for example the temporary expansion of the existing pedestrian zone on weekends and bank holidays, with vehicle access to premises within this enlarged zone restricted to an early m

The principles and priorities of the regeneration plan are sound and the aims are welcome. Weston town centre does need higher population density of 'permanent' residents for renewed vitality, which will complement the opportunities brought by the increasing student population. The use of brown field sites for good quality housing has to be the way forward. The type of housing envisaged should help to balance the age profile of the town and attract a greater variety of retailers. Some comments a

Priority 6. Shared space is a risk to visually impaired people. They are unable to make eye contact with drivers and will not be able see vehicles approaching. Accicents have happend in shared space and there is evidence to suggest that it is less in favour and ' fashionable' than it used to be. This is an opportunity for NSC to think outside of the box and come up with their own solutions to suit all road users - ones which may include retaining a kerb.

Weston Town centre does not need an additional 1000 new homes. It needs more job creation and more leisure to attract the younger people living in the outlying villages eg. Worle, Banwell, Bleadon want to go into the town centre rather than going up to the Mall. You also need to attract better shops to the area. Where are people going to work? Junction 21 will be at a complete stand still with extra people commuting out of Weston Town Centre along with all of the other planned developments.
