JSP concept is unsound. Main roads focus towards Weston or Bristol. Suggest a number of N/S road improvements across NSC and to improve airport access. Employment allocation for garden village is minimal and may not be attractive. Not sustainable - lack of local jobs, poor public transport. Substantial adverse impacts on environment, neighbouring settlements and traffic congestion. Keep new housing away from proposed major highway. Relocate housing to Ashton Vale.

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.

The Mendip Garden Village proposal is inconsistent with JSP technical evidence on transport, has not considered JSP HRAs, and premature

Regarding q 16, the 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 proposed allocation of Banwell and Churchill garden villages.

There is an absence of an existing foul sewer network in this location. Further appraisal work will be required to provide options as to how this proposed garden village can be served.

the Mendip Spring Garden Village proposal (7.6 of the JSP) will be found to be unsound on public examination due to take place in 2019. The vision for this development is therefore fundamentally flawed.

We are totally opposed to the proposals for the SDL of Churchill/Mendip Spring. The Local Plan 2036 consultation for Mendip Spring Garden Village (4.2) is premature. It is not appropriate for North somerset Council to conduct a consultation when very significant issues have yet to be addressed through he Joint Spacial Plan (JSP) process and formal examination. It is wrong to predict or presuppose the outcome of the JSP examination by the independent Inspectors.

The principles set out for Mendip Spring Garden Village are broadly agreed and reflect the proposed vision. However, we do consider a further principle should be added.
