The Portishead rail connection is readily achievable and would open up alternative development opportunities.

We believe that there is scope to deliver additional housing at Portishead on previously developed sites rather than on greenfield sites around the town. However, we would support small scale Green Belt releases to accommodate some development where the Green Belt is considered to make only a limited contribution to the purposes of its original designation and sustainably located. We also strongly support the re-opening of the train station at Portishead.

Portishead is also to consider “small scale Green Belt releases” which again contradict NSC’s policy of protecting Green Belt boundaries. This is the thin end of the wedge.

While Weston is willing to take its fair 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.

We support the aim to identify more opportunities for residential development. . Whilst the principle of additional employment land on the edge of Portishead (through the small-scale release of Green Belt land) is welcomed, much of it is constrained, or would be better suited to housing, with employment located centrally, or towards the east of the town, in the flood zone where employment uses are less vulnerable forms of development.
