We strongly agree that the increased pressure from recreation arising from the proposed development will be a key issue but we think the level of this risk is sufficiently highly that we think that the environmental implications of the development on internationally protected habitats should also be recognised here.

There is no need to assess the policy context in respect of AONB policy which is quite clearly set out in the NPPF. In addition the conservation and enhancement of wildlife are also important and therefore the impact on the Mendip Bats SAC is a key issue which should also be assessed.

Building so close to the AONB (at Churchill) would not only damage the AONB and views from it, but would also undermine the existing tourism and recreational appeal of the area.

Activities, livelihoods, and housing can enhance the rural landscape in this way as an AONB. Welcome in beauty and sustainable, land based livelihoods!

HLM wish to raise concern that the Mendip Hills AONB has not been afforded sufficient weight in the sub-regional plan-making process, and this has resulted in unfavourable proposed allocations for strategic-scale development in Banwell and Churchill.
