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?

Wrong to anticipate the JSP outcome. Green Belt is not sacrosanct and restricts Bristol. Alternative sites closer to Bristol and jobs and reduce commuting. Proposal will suburbanise a large area of agricultural land and infilling important separations between settlements. Need to maintain settlement boundaries. Adjacent AONB. Roads become blocked during holiday periods. Lack of health and educational infrastructure in area. Proposals will have impact on villages in neighbouring areas.

We are 100% opposed to the SDL of Churchill/Mendip Spring ‘Garden Village. To call it a ‘Garden Village’ when it will end up as a town almost the size of Wells is specious to say the least. There is overwhelming opposition to the proposal for Mendip Spring Garden Village SDL across a very broad demographic here in Churchill. This consultation is premature and prejudges the outcome of the Public Examination (PE)

Mendip Spring is too isolated from employment centres, little prospect of providing a frequent bus service, residents will be forced to travel by car. A38 north of airport already requires improvement. A370 is not capable of carrying significant growth in traffic without harm to existing villages - air quality, noise, vibration, severance and risk of accidents.

Houses should be built near jobs in Bristol. Transport infrastructure is environmentally damaging, including pollution. Using Green Belt is a much better and green solution. Green Belt is strangling Bristol. Encouraging urban sprawl - will create a soulless dormitory town on good agricultural land. Proposal is adjacent AONB - the environmental/ecological damage would be permanent. Settlement boundaries need to be rigorously maintained. People should be encouraged to walk or cycle to work.

Summary of 4.1 It is patently evident due to a lack of a Sustainability Appraisal for the SDL of Churchill/Mendip Spring that there is insufficient evidence to include this SDL in the Issues and Options consultation. The Sustainability Appraisal Scoping Report (Stages of the SA process- p12) notes, ’Develop the Local Plan options including reasonable alternatives and evaluate the likely effects of the Local Plan and alternatives” There are no alternatives .

Totally opposed to the proposals for the SDL of Mendip Spring/Churchill. The consultation is premature when very significant issues have yet to be addressed through the joint Spatial Plan examination. Houses should be built near to the jobs in Bristol. Transport infrastructure is environmentally damaging - strain on infrastructure and increased pollution.

Need to maintain as much agricultural land as possible for future generations given uncertain times and global warming. Green Belt on the edge of Bristol can accommodate the housing needed - close to jobs and existing infrastructure. Green Belt is not sacrosanct - used for roads and airport. Concern about proximity to AONB. Planning Inspectors have highlighted importance of maintaining the landscape.

Totally opposed to Mendip Spring. Consultation is premature. Houses should be built closer to Bristol where the jobs will be. A38 and A370 are already highly congested, there is very little public transport - will be more traffic and pollution on routes into Bristol.

Premature to consult at this stage. Inadequate transport infrastructure - costly and environmentally damaging so far from Bristol. Low lying land subject to flooding. Current roads already at or beyond capacity. Close to AONB - development would destroy area through light pollution and visual impact. Green Belt around Bristol is more suitable and close to jobs. Settlement boundaries need to be preserved to prevent merger of villages.

Any new walking and cycle paths should be multi-user
