1. North Somerset Local Plan 2036: Issues and Options Document Potential new policy areas Q46. Should the Local Plan identify suitable land for large-scale renewable energy development to support new development?

Yes, the Local Plan should allocate land for renewable energy development to support each SDL. Solar PV requires 5 acres per MW and this should be encompassed in a development viability assessment. If a Garden Village is to be truly sustainable, it is an essential consideration.

Climate change threat recognised. Renewable energy can have negative as well as positive effects on wildlife, landscape etc. New local plan present opportunity to identify where technology should best be accommodated. pleased that adaptation and role of GI is recognised.

Yes, but impact on local residents should be considered.

It would be preferable to require local and small-scale renewable energy solutions to be designed in to every development.

Why is land needed when we have roofs?

No. This could only be through large scale solar installations. These only provide significant power in the right conditions, have significant land use and visual impacts, and the Plan already proposes major impacts on the visual landscape.

This should be considered for the strategic development sites (such as Banwell Garden Village)

Yes, but let’s not trash Green Belt or AONB or good agricultural land with photovoltaic or solar farms. North Somerset has enough already.
