Green belt land should be reviewed as there are ‘exceptional circumstances’ both in housing need and in consideration

Changes need to be made to the Green Belt as it is strangling Bristol. Green Belt is not sacrosanct - it includes South Bristol Link and airport. Just 2% Green Belt is needed to build houses close to jobs rather than a dormitory town in countryside adjacent to AONB. NSC is encouraging urban sprawl - a soulless dormitory town on good agricultural land.

40% of land in North Somerset is Green Belt, just 2% is needed to build 4,500 houses close to the jobs in Bristol. Green belt is strangling Bristol - amendment would allow for houses to be built near to where the majority of jobs and leisure activities are. Instead NSC is planning a garden village a long way from Bristol in beautiful countryside where there are no local jobs or leisure facilities. Many developments have already happened in the green belt. Encouraging urban sprawl close to AONB.

Welcome recognition of impact of development on Green Belt, perhaps a separate green infrastructure network chapter is also required.

Bristol City Council welcomes the consideration of the future of land parcels in the Green Belt inside the South Bristol Link and looks forward to working with North Somerset Council on the future of these areas.

We agree with the general issues and considerations raised by this section. In particular, the new Plan provides an opportunity for a wholesale review of settlement boundaries within Green Belt areas and consequently for communities within these areas to address their local housing needs. These should not be just minor changes to address anomalies but comprehensive reviews.

Green belt is not sacrosanct nor untouchable.
