We propose that the concept diagram should be revised to take into account both the first alternative scenario proposed (including further development to the north up to and beyond Silver Moor Lane), and the second alternative scenario including development between the proposed Banwell Bypass and Banwell Village.
There is scope for development at Banwell Garden Village which is in excess of the capacity identified by the emerging JSP currently; additional development will only help to ensure the vitality and viability of the settlement, and the benefits of the infrastructure funding being committed to the Banwell Bypass.
The Turley masterplan included in the accompanying Vision Document has been informed by technical studies in relation to landscape, topography, flood risk and drainage, ecology, highways and with consideration to the principles set out in the Issues document. The forthcoming planning application on the site will demonstrate through detailed supporting information that the Turley masterplan (likely broadly in accordance with the current draft) is justified and evidenced.
In essence, extending the concept diagram for Banwell Garden Village to include the two further land scenarios is entirely justified and would help to facilitate the delivery of homes, and important services and infrastructure, on the site in accordance with North Somerset Council’s vision.

Summary
We propose that the concept diagram should be revised to take into account both the first alternative scenario proposed (including further development to the north up to and beyond Silver Moor Lane), and the second alternative scenario including development between the proposed Banwell Bypass and Banwell Village.
