We consider that section 6 accurately sets out the issues for the Central Parishes. However, all these issues will need to be comprehensively examined at the JSP examination relating to strategic issues, the results of which will need to be taken into account in the Local Plan.

I object to the proposal to build "Garden Villages" when there are more appropriate sites closer to the employment and amenities of Bristol. The vague transport plans included here would compound rather than solve local traffic issues, as would building new homes completely dependent on cars.

Much of the land spoken of will be uninhabitable within the century unless massive steps are taken to achieve zero-carbon lifestyles. Within this, new, progressive and innovative approaches to living and livelihoods must be explored otherwise we are doomed. Community led sustainable housing and zero-carbon one-planet-living development approaches should be adopted to achieve this.

As much of the central parish area is constrained by floodplain this gives additional support to development in Banwell which is in flood zone 1.

In our view, the opportunity of including community-led development as a core component within these schemes is too valuable to miss.

The consultation recognises the key issues for the central parishes’ in that they contain internationally protected habitats and floodplain area. Protecting the individual character and environment of existing villages would be impossible given the volume of development proposed. There are no policies capable of addressing the issues of these proposals.

Concern about proportion of proposed growth to meet needs of local residents.

Coln Residential are broadly in agreement with the issues identified for the Central Parishes in the NLP Issues and Options document. Coln Residential support the identification of policies and allocations to deliver the housing requirement at sustainable locations, such as Churchill.

Strongly agree that environmental implications of development is a key issue. Vital that any new development does not have an adverse impact on surrounding waterbodies.

We are concerned by the significant reliance on the strategic development locations at Banwell and Churchill given the overall cost of delivering the associated transport programme. It is our position that the Council should reduce its dependency on infrastructure heavy strategic development locations within this plan period. We consider that the proportion for non-strategic development locations should increase to provide a more balanced approach.
