1. North Somerset Local Plan 2036: Issues and Options Document Banwell Garden Village Q10. Do you have any comments on the proposed vision for Banwell?

  • Comment ID: 21228385//6
The sections on Banwell and Banwell Garden Village contain a high degree of wishful thinking, in particular with regard to transport infrastructure and employment. Question 12, demonstrates that North Somerset Council has no concrete proposals to offer on employment. I do NOT support these proposals.

Unsustainable location and viability not established. Need to demonstrate land is available at £100-250/ha for viability modelling. More work needed on abnormal costs of garden village development - off-site utility reinforcement, new highway, cycle, public transport infrastructure, costs of acquiring land for infrastructure, evidence that J21a is deliverable. Will CPO be used? Implications of Brexit on sales and project finance? Need to present case for all alternative scenarios.

New M5 junction would probably be key to the success of a community here. Any new walking/cycling paths should be dedicated as multi-user.

Regarding q11: These SDLs (strategic allocations) are still to be tested through the Joint Spatial Plan examination. As set out in our comments dated 8 January 2018 to the Joint Spatial Plan consultation, we have strong concerns regarding the allocation of Banwell and Churchill garden villages.

Banwell is close enough to Weston-super-Mare for new residents to travel to work in Weston by cycling or new public transport services. Banwell village has long needed a bypass and construction of new houses will contribute to the cost of its construction. (I am not convinced that the additional houses should be located north of the proposed bypass but that matter is for a later stage of plan making.

We suggest the vision better incorporates high quality green infrastructure at all scales.

The answer is to stop talking about a Banwell Bypass and a Sandford/Churchill Bypass, as if the two are separate and could exist independently. Rather, you cannot logically have a Banwell Bypass without also bypassing Sandford and Churchill, therefore you should really start talking about a Banwell/Sandford/Churchill Bypass – treating it as a single entity rather than two separate bypasses.

700 new houses in Backwell is unsustainable

Oppose garden villages. Doubtful of accompanying infrastructure. Affordable housing is only thing required.
