Lack of sustainable transport options clearly restricts further development in Clevedon and this could only be addressed in the longer term in order to support further development opportunities to the south of the town.

Clevedon has motorway connections which although not ‘sustainable’ provide routes north/south. Frequent congestion on the M5 and to Bristol emphasises the importance of having sustainable modes of transport in place before development. New west/east roads would be highly destructive to important heritage and landscape. We would expect the new ‘Visions’ being prepared would respect the landscape and work to enhance the setting of the towns.

Is any significant social or economic data misrepresented or missing? Yes. There are plans to build 2575 dwellings during 2027 with another 725 after 2036. This would go along a new route built from Nailsea to Washing Pound Lane which is just east of Tickenham. Then the route would continue through the village to Clevedon and then to Junction 20 of the M5.

Area to the south of Clevedon provides a better location for contingency than the site east of Jn 20

While Weston is willing to take its fairt share of development the towns of Portishead Nailsea and Clevedon and large villages must also be required to take their fair share including adjusting the green belt boundary if necessary.

The contingency site at east Clevedon, identified in both the JSP and the Issues and Options document, lies in defended Flood Zone 3. The provision of housing proposals, which are considered to be a more vulnerable land use in respect to flood risk, is in conflict with national planning policy which seeks to guide such development away from at risk areas.

Both Clevedon and Nailsea are to consider “the opportunity for Green Belt amendments”. However NSC’s policies aver protection for the existing Green Belt (which is highly valued by residents.). NSC has declined to consider sacrificing Green Belt between the southern ring road and Bristol City (Ashton Vale) on the basis of their current policy to protect Green Belt. The two appear to be contradictory.
