1. North Somerset Local Plan 2036: Issues and Options Document Backwell Q20. Do you agree with the principles set out for Backwell and would you suggest any changes to these?

Object to Backwell and proposed road/metrobus route. Will result in 40% increase in population - village does not have infrastructure, facilities or employment. Will completely change the character of Backwell. Need to review Green Belt to provide sustainable growth. Proposal is not deliverable by 2036 - no funding identified for transport proposals and adds to congestion on A370. Build rate is not achievable. Lake is beautiful and supports wildlife. Village should not become a transport hub.

Support the principle of addressing ecological issues both through on-site measures as well as through a more strategic solution.

Vigorously opposed to the principles. Well-related development is not possible, criteria will count for little when setting itself is built over. Congestion at crossroads and new access to A370 will be massively unpopular. Smaller spread out developments would have less of an impact.

The proposals in the document do not properly address the issues raised by the development proposal. The analysis of the site gives too much emphasis to heritage issues compared with issues directly affecting local people.

We suggest that the principles for development at Backwell need to take into account that any new highways infrastructure to support the development needs to take into account the effect of the proposals on designated heritage assets such as that at the Belmont Estate. This is not currently reflected in the principles and is an important point, as highlighted above, and also as highlighted by Historic England in response to the JSP consultation.

TW are generally supportive of this proposed vision and the majority of the design principles set out for the Backwell SDL. However, they do question the rationale and justification of the second design principle whereby the Council require the delivery of the new Station Road to A370 link in advance of development commencing, coupled with modifications to Station Road. Significance of horseshoe bats are recognised.
