Sites adjacent to settlement boundaries which fall partly within the AONB and which propose housing of 10 units or more should be excluded re SHLAA Part 1 assessment. Part 2 assessment should include reference to sites within setting of AoNB.

The Core Strategy permits up to 25 dwellings adjacent to settlement boundary of service villages Banwell, Churchill, and Winscombe , yet NPPF and DEFRA 25 Year Environment Plan refer to restriction on scale of development in AoNBs.

The Council have treated Green Belt, AONB and flood risk as absolute constraints. The Local Plan should consider the potential for sustainable locations in the Green Belt and it should not assume the flood risk areas on the constraints map are absolute constraints as demonstrated by existing development in flood risk areas which are otherwise protected.

The landscape report prepared by Wardell Armstrong for NSC has been reviewed by The Landmark Practice and a response to its findings is set out in Appendix A. The Landmark Practice undertook a detailed analysis of the land at Black Rock (SHLAA Ref: HE18124) in both summer and winter conditions and their full report is also contained in Appendix A. They reached a different and positive conclusion regarding the site and land to the North of Hollis Avenue (paras 6.4.21).

It is our opinion that there will be a need to deliver in excess of the 1,000-dwelling non-strategic growth currently identified for North Somerset over the plan period. We agree that this level of growth should be steered to the most sustainable settlements within the District but acknowledge that the current Issues and Options document does not indicate where the Council intends to meet these needs.

North Somerset Strategic Housing Land Availability Assessment The approach taken to Land Availability Assessment by NSC has already been set out in detail. Our primary concern is that of the land identified and entered into the forward plan process, most sites have been discounted without full and proper wide ranging testing. That does not lead to robust plan making and is considered unsound.

We would like to see more weight given to neighbourhood planning. It seems section 3 provides only a small paragraph on how neighbourhood plans will work and we believe more detail should be given and how North Somerset Council will adhere to these plans.

The document focuses on large scale development on greenfield sites, when there are remaining Brownfield sites and PDL in North Somerset being offered for development and refused.
