Option 3 is the most preferential.

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: 1019201//44
The proposals for a ‘garden village’ at Mendip Spring are premature and considered unsustainable. Until the JSP formal examination process has been concluded however, further consultation is only at best hypothetical and may be unachievable.

The Banwell and Churchill SDLs (strategic allocations) are still to be tested through the Joint Spatial Plan examination. As set out in our comments dated 8 January 2018 to the Joint Spatial Plan consultation, we have strong concerns regarding the proposed allocation of Banwell and Churchill garden villages

We would advocate an approach that seeks to release accessible, well-connected non-strategic sites from the Green Belt. As such there is support for review to the Green Belt where sites present an opportunity for additional sustainable growth and where they are currently making a limited contribution to the purposes of the Green Belt, as defined by the National Planning Policy Framework (Paragraph 134, July 2018).

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: 21224097//6
The approach of Option 1 is supported as this allows for additional flexibility within the Plan period for non-strategic Windfall sites. Still carefully considered against other Development Management criterion as well as National guidance; development adjacent to Service Village boundaries is sustainable and similarly to the response above, provides the additional patronage for facilities and services within these important settlements.

1. North Somerset Local Plan 2036: Issues and Options Document Backwell Q19. Do you have any comments on the proposed vision for Backwell?

  • Comment ID: 21224097//7
The Vision for Backwell is overly reliant on the success of the Strategic site, which does not allow for flexibility on delivery timescales. The Vision and development scenarios should also look at allocating non-strategic sites that are connected to the existing development and form logical extensions to the fringes of the settlement. It follows that the Settlement Boundary and Green Belt in these locations be adjusted to accommodate such sites.

When will the growth/development stop? How do we protect green fields for general wellbeing, environmental, leisure, farming, future generations and prevent land banking.

The Land North of Greenhill Road, Sandford (see location plan at Appendix 1) is a sustainable location for at Sandford. The land is identified as site HE18344 in the Strategic Housing Land Assessment 2018 (SHLAA) and could accommodate approximately 80 dwellngs. Sites such as this should be considered favourably due to the important contribution they can make to the housing land supply.
