Our client’s land has not been promoted previously, albeit it would have been released as part of the large Ashton Vale development should that have come forward. We welcome the consideration of this land’s release from the Green Belt and set out the reasons why we feel this should be pursued by the Council in section 3 of these representations.

1. North Somerset Local Plan 2036: Issues and Options Document Local Housing Growth Settlement Hierarchy Q8. What are your views on the options for a revised settlement hierarchy?

  • Comment ID: 21482337//3
In the absence of any detail, i.e. what the hierarchy would look like under each scenario, it is difficult at this stage to comment upon a preference.

1. North Somerset Local Plan 2036: Issues and Options Document North Somerset Issues Q7. Do you agree with these or are there other challenges or issues which we have not included and how might the Local Plan address these?

The plan pays little attention to the issue of the proximity of its proposed 'garden villages' to the Mendip Hills AONB.

  • Comment ID: 21228385//4
The 3 proposed options are equally flawed as they give no serious consideration to the strategic use of poor quality green belt land.

1. North Somerset Local Plan 2036: Issues and Options Document Local Housing Growth Settlement Boundaries Q9. What are your views on the options for revised settlement boundaries?

  • Comment ID: 21228385//5
I do NOT agree with proposals to alter settlement boundaries. I draw your attention to North Somerset Council's Landscape Character guidelines.

1. North Somerset Local Plan 2036: Issues and Options Document Banwell Garden Village Q14. Are there any other options you would add for accommodating strategic growth within the Garden Village near Banwell?

  • Comment ID: 21228385//7
As the proposal for Banwell Garden village is based on a doubtful premise, it is I fear hard to take these proposed alternatives seriously.

1. North Somerset Local Plan 2036: Issues and Options Document Mendip Spring garden Village Q15. Do you have any comments on the proposed vision for Mendip Spring Garden Village?

  • Comment ID: 21228385//8
The section on Churchill and the 'Mendip Springs Garden Village' contain the same level of wishful thinking as those on Banwell, in particular with regard to transport infrastructure and employment. I do NOT support these proposals, which would place a significant area of rural land under tarmac.

The approach to Option 3 is supported. This allows for individual settlements to be flexible to accommodate additional growth, but still carefully considered through the Development Management process.Sites such as the attached could deliver additional housing to support the sustainable growth of Portbury

1. North Somerset Local Plan 2036: Issues and Options Document Banwell Garden Village Q10. Do you have any comments on the proposed vision for Banwell?

  • Comment ID: 21228385//6
The sections on Banwell and Banwell Garden Village contain a high degree of wishful thinking, in particular with regard to transport infrastructure and employment. Question 12, demonstrates that North Somerset Council has no concrete proposals to offer on employment. I do NOT support these proposals.
