The viability of the proposed garden villages (Banwell and Churchill) has yet to be demonstrated, or examined under the JSP examination. These locations are not sustainable, will require huge infrastructure investment the implementation of which will create significant environmental effects. This cannot be the most sustainable solution. The Green Belt restrictions are out of date and creating perverse outcomes.

No reference to the rural economy or tourism within the Issues and Options Document, consider that this is not in accordance with the NPPF. New local plan needs tourism policy.

5.2 In terms of the North Somerset wide issues, the summary of key issues and suggested ways to address them through the Local Plan are supported. The University of Bristol’s land at Wyndhurst Farm (see redline plan at Appendix 2) could play a role in supporting two of the suggested initiatives.

Area contains a range of environmental sensitivities and so accommodating transport infrastructure etc. without resulting in adverse effects will be extremely challenging. It will be critical therefore that development options for these areas are informed by robust ecological and landscape evidence and supported by strategic mitigation solutions.

The Banwell and Churchill SDLs fall within the AoNB setting, this should be considered; strong concern at potential impact on tranquillity, sense of remoteness, naturalness of AoNB, road system, including cumulative impact of development.

The Document identifies the protection and enhancement of the environment as an issue, but does not present clarity on how it might address it.

As set out in our introduction, we continue to object to the draft JSP and its identification of Banwell and Churchill SDLs. However, the key issue facing these two areas, which are amongst the most remote and poorly connected in North Somerset, is how they could possibly accommodate the largest amount of growth proposed within NSC (Banwell and Churchill SDLs combined) without unmitigatable, irreversible and unviable environmental, social and economic impacts.
