1. North Somerset Local Plan 2036: Issues and Options Document Mendip Spring garden Village Q16. Do you agree with the principles set out for Mendip Spring Garden Village and would you suggest any changes to these?

I disagree with the principles. The proposal at Mendip Spring does not meet the criteria of a garden Village. It is naïve to assume that it would function independently and would just become another dormitory housing estate. Houses should be built near to employment sources.

It is inappropriate for the council to be consulting further on these proposals when there are significant issues that have been raised via the JSP consultation, which is still with the Independent Inspector. Within that I also specifically object to any proposal to create a "Green Village" at Churchill, as there is no way to create a sustainable and economically viable new settlement at this site.

A principle of development should be a commitment to a ecological net gain. Strongly support the need for recreation to be embedded in masterplanning.

Consider community-led delivery and ownership should form a key component of any development.

I would just like to record my objection to the planned destruction of the North Somerset country side in the pursuit of building a what in my opinion is a new suburb for the City if Bristol. These planned houses if required should be built in Bristol and if space does not permit the boundary should be increased to accommodate.

The principles informing the Mendip Spring proposal seem simplistic and naive and overlook the significant issues around lack of sustainable transport links and employment as well as the impact on the AONB and rural communities.

register my opposition to the new housing proposals for the Strategic Development Location near Mendip Spring Golf Club Churchill. These proposals will not meet the demands of those in greatest housing need. Most of the homes built in locations in open countryside are likely to be larger and more expensive than average homes in North Somerset.
