All new development should be in-accordance with the National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF), specifically relevant for the Agency would be any development within flood plain. This should include evidence of Sequential Test acceptability, as well as an appropriate Flood Risk Assessment which addresses all flood concerns.

We note it is recognised that flood constraints limit the opportunity to develop adjacent to these areas. We would wish the wording of the Policy to be modified to highlight this issue as follows. * Residential development within the settlement boundaries of the three towns and adjacent areas will be acceptable in principal provided it reflects the character of the local environment and does not cause any adverse impacts.In particular Flood risk and drainage must be considered at a local and ca

The remaining distribution of higher housing numbers to predominantly Nailsea, the Service Villages and other settlements, amounts to an increase of 3000 homes to these areas, without any assessment of the impact. These communities already experience substantial out commuting and therefore this increase will only exacerbate the problem. The spatial strategy has been significantly altered in respect of these areas, amounting to a 200% increase housing in these areas.  This is a fundamental change

Clevedon Town Council considered NSC's proposed changes and the general approach taken by NSC.  Members noted the proposed changes but asked that in all policies NSC be requested to note and include provision to show that in relation to some other areas the planned housing for Clevedon is on a smaller scale but geographically those small developments will add up to a major strain on Clevedon's infrastructure. Clevedon Town Council requests that the upgrade to Clevedon infrastructure is included

CS31 : Clevedon, Nailsea and Portishead   3.6       In terms of the focus of significant additional housing at the first two towns in particularly, we         are broadly supportive although we consider there is greater potential on the western side of       Nailsea adjoining the settlement boundary.

The increase in housing numbers at Nailsea is welcome.  However it is felt that there is the opportunity for a higher level of residential development at this highly sustainable settlement. Figures for Nailsea should be expressed as a minimum with opportunities to exceed this figure should the opportunity arise for sustainable development. There is the opportunity for the delivery of mixed use development to the south of Nailsea exists without the need to impact on the Green Belt or other sens

In relation to Policy CS31 'Clevedon, Nailsea and Portishead' Network Rail would wish to remain fully engaged and consulted with the proposal to re-open the rail/rapid transit link to Bristol. Network Rail will also need to be consulted on any other policies and proposals affecting the rail system that are included in the Core Strategy Review/New Local Plan.

Support housing growth at Clevedon with employment, good bus links to Bristol, Yatton and Nailsea stations and a MetroBus corridor to Bristol and bus/coach links to the M5 at Aztec West, support housing growth of high density affordable housing at Nailsea with employment sites allocated near Nailsea and Backwell station which should be DDA compliant, Portishead should take further growth once the railway reopens with a frequent service to Bristol and the Henbury loop included, more employment sh

The Council is in broad agreement with the existing principles.  However, there should be no development on the town boundaries, which would put an unreasonable burden on all services (education, medical etc.), given the huge increase in population over recent years.  It is also essential that there should be no dilution of the planned number of new jobs within the town.

about the sentence in the policy: Within Nailsea proposals which improve the mix and balance of housing types and tenure to encourage a more balanced age structure will be supported. is there any evidence to support the claim or just generally idea about the town? in what way the increase housing number in Nailsea from around 200 to over 900, is justified? how can the policy support the future residents in a balanced age structure before any body even seeing what the properites are?
