The link between housing (social) and employment (an economic objective) is enshrined within the NPPF, which notes that these are two of the three interdependent strands of sustainable development. In line with this, HLM consider it essential to deliver houses that are linked to jobs and vice versa. As such, the policy link between housing and employment at Weston Super-Mare should be retained, and this principle should be extended to the Tier 2 settlements also.

Section 6 of the NPPF should form the starting point for reviewing the employment-led policy at Weston-super-Mare. In the context of the Core Strategy the majority of new residential development was proposed in Weston-super-Mare, In the context of the JSP and the new Local Plan, the majority of the new development is in the SDLs. It is therefore inappropriate to continue with the current approach.

Any contribution to employment should not be at the expense of affordable housing with one exception being if it is on a brownfield site currently used for employment.

Yes, but the jobs that developers can provide or fund need to also include activity that offsets the environmental and social impacts that their developments will bring.

Yes. It is stated in the preceding paragraphs that the policy has seen an improvement in the delivery of employment within WsM, so why change what appears to be working?

We do not agree that the specific link between housing and employment should be maintained. In the past this link has hindered the delivery of housing which is desperately needed in Weston-super-Mare in particular, which in turn hinders economic growth.

St Modwen looking to work with council and other key stakeholders to modernise policy position (employment led strategy). Need to move away from specific job requirements.
