1. North Somerset Local Plan 2036: Issues and Options Document Mendip Spring garden Village Q17. Do you have any comments on the Concept Diagrams and Alternative Scenarios set out?

  • Comment ID: 14896737//3
Having considered the design principles which will inform the evolving masterplan for the SDL, further land to the east of the proposed garden village is necessary if those principles are to be accomplished alongside delivering the required number of dwellings.

1. North Somerset Local Plan 2036: Issues and Options Document Mendip Spring garden Village Q18. Are there any other options you would add for accommodating strategic growth at Mendip Spring Garden Village?

  • Comment ID: 14896737//4
Growth within the SDL should be channelled eastwards towards Stock Lane and no other options are proposed in response to question 18.

1. North Somerset Local Plan 2036: Issues and Options Document Mendip Spring garden Village Q15. Do you have any comments on the proposed vision for Mendip Spring Garden Village?

  • Comment ID: 14896737//1
The expectation that the garden village will be delivered in its entirety in less than 20 years seems overly optimistic, as it depends on the delivery of a new bypass, and junction on to the M5. Significant land assembly is necessary, requiring multiple ownerships. These constraints are significant, to the point that the University questions what, if any part of the SDL could be delivered during the plan period.

The University of Bristol’s site at Wyndhurst Farm is sustainably located, adjacent to the Service Village settlement boundary of Langford. The consultation document rightly highlights the need for ‘non-strategic’ development in sustainable locations across the district.

1. North Somerset Local Plan 2036: Issues and Options Document Mendip Spring garden Village Q16. Do you agree with the principles set out for Mendip Spring Garden Village and would you suggest any changes to these?

  • Comment ID: 14896737//2
A number of the design principles are supported, but some are not, for example the 2nd proposes a new conservation area for which the need is unclear.

1. North Somerset Local Plan 2036: Issues and Options Document North Somerset Issues Q6. 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?

  • Comment ID: 14896737//5
5.2 In terms of the North Somerset wide issues, the summary of key issues and suggested ways to address them through the Local Plan are supported. The University of Bristol’s land at Wyndhurst Farm (see redline plan at Appendix 2) could play a role in supporting two of the suggested initiatives.

  • Comment ID: 14896737//8
Land at Wyndhurst Farm, which has been submitted as part of the Council’s ‘Call for Sites’ and which would make a valuable contribution to ‘non-strategic’ growth over the plan period.
