You do need to explain why any of these regions need more housing? I thought it was for regeneration but I can't see Churchill needing regeneration. We need school places, sewage and flooding control, public service transport links, stock lane route to Congresbury being sorted. I'm not sure building, literally, 1000s of houses on greenfield sites will help in any of this. Where is the business need for any of this?

Insufficient housing numbers identified and insufficient account taken of delay to local plan review as set out in the Core Strategy.

The total requirement flowing out of the JSP will increase as will North Somerset’s contribution. The Council should reduce its dependency on infrastructure heavy strategic development locations within this plan period. Far more non-strategic growth should be delivered to ensure flexibility going forward. Green Belt sites will be required like Barratt Homes (Bristol)'s ‘Land Off Colliters Way, Highridge Bristol’. on the southwest edge of Bristol.

The current position in regard to 5YHLS, and the shortfall to date against the Core Strategy requirement, highlights the importance of maintaining a robust supply of smaller development sites for short-medium term housing supply. This has been emphasised by the Government in recent years, who have confirmed that central to ‘Planning for the Right Homes in the Right Places’ is "releasing more small and medium-sized sites, allowing rural communities to grow.."

We have several fundamental concerns with the draft JSP housing requirement. Evidence shows that the real OAN for the WoE requires 140,000 homes by 2036. If the real OAN were distributed in the same manner this would give North Somerset a housing requirement of 35,000 homes.

It is our position therefore that the total requirement flowing out of the JSP will increase as will North Somerset’s contribution and that the Council should reduce its dependency on infrastructure heavy strategic development locations within this plan period. As a result, we consider the distribution for non-strategic development locations should increase and sites such as that controlled by my client should be actively considered.

Insufficient housing growth allowed for.

Must question central government data. Real objective is population control. Council housing should never be sold. Convert retail to residential.

Should acknowledge that the Core Strategy review is delayed beyond it's timetable. Evidence base for 25,000 homes not clearly referenced and being prepared in advance of JSP certainty. Strategy is flawed.
