Sport England strategy Towards an Active Nation identifies a planned approach to provision of facilities and opportunities for sport is necessary - protect and enhance existing and provide new facilities. Sport is a key component of plans and shouldn't be considered in isolation. Sport benefits the local economy. Does not appear to be a robust and up-to-date evidence base for sport and recreation in North Somerset. Needed to inform IDP and CIL. Need adequate replacement of affected facilities.

Need to make better use of existing resources and new sports facilities to serve more than one group of users. Encourage potential providers to consider opportunities for joint provision and dual use in appropriate locations. Sports facilities at school sites are an important resource. Use our school is a resource to support schools in opening their facilities to the community and keeping them open.

Consider adopted policy DM57 construction of new buildings for visitor accommodation) to be too restrictive, the policy should be updated and broadened.

Education land for mainstream/special education needs should be identified and land allocated. Eg there is an acute need for additional special education needs development in North Somerset. Live-work units need a stand-alone policy and should be encouraged - would underpin sustainable living patterns and provide opportunities to support and maintain rural vitality. Care Homes – dementia care, general elderly care and assisted living together with retirement villages - needs policy/allocations.

As referred to above, we would strongly urge the council to consider a policy to secure environmental net gain and would expect this to be further considered in the emerging WoE GI Plan.
