Whilst the land on the eastern boundary of the Banwell Garden Village site appears on initial review to be heavily constrained in flood risk and drainage terms, Bloor Homes will evidence that effective use of this land can support the delivery of the Garden Village through providing appropriate land for strategic landscaping, ecological mitigation and valuable informal public open space, synonymous with the principles of the delivery of a Garden Community. The inclusion of this land in the concept diagram for Banwell Garden Village should not therefore be overlooked and, indeed, should form an important element of the new community.
