1. North Somerset Local Plan 2036: Issues and Options Document North Somerset Issues Q7. Do you agree with these or are there other challenges or issues which we have not included and how might the Local Plan address these?

The proposed development (Mendip Spring) is adjacent to the Mendip Hills which is a well known AONB, which means it is more ecologically, environmentally and landscape sensitive that the green belt immediately south of Bristol. Such development would permanently damage this area and should not be allowed to happen.

The plan for such huge housing developments will destroy precisely what makes the area so Outstanding, Natural and Beautiful - LEAVE IT ALONE!

The proposed Mendip Spring/Churchill development is adjacent to the Mendip Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB). What about those important Habitat Regulations?

Planning policy is meant to protect the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) however the proposal for the Mendip Spring / Churchill development will date this area of the MendiP Hills and this area is more environmentally, ecologically and landscape-sensitive than the Green Belt immediately south of Bristol, this damage will be irreversible

The proposed Mendip Spring/Churchill development is adjacent to the Mendip Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB). This area is more environmentally, ecologically and landscape-sensitive than the Green Belt immediately south of Bristol. The environmental/ecological damage would be permanent - impossible to mitigate against.

North Somerset Council should abandon the plans for so-called 'garden villages' in the Banwell and Churchill areas, concentrating instead on development in the area between the South Bristol Link and the outskirts of Bristol, close to jobs and established transport infrastructure. 'Sprawl from Bristol' will do considerably less long term damage to the environment of North Somerset then 'sprawl' over the Central Parishes.

The proposed housing estates at Congresbury and Banwell, and associated roads are fundamentally at odds with the protection of the AONB. A very small proportion of green belt could be re-designated at Ashton Vale to provide sustainable development (which would be consistent with the objectives of the JSP).

The proposed Mendip Spring/Churchill development is adjacent to the Mendip Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and would create permanent damage to the area in terms of visual appearance. The Council is placing financial gain ahead of the benefit to the public of retaining this land in its present state.

We expect continued protection of the AONB regardless of the actions arising elsewhere in the Local Plan.
