TW welcome the preparation of the NLP and broadly agree with the main issues presented
in the Issues and Options document and the identification of Land at Grove Farm, land at
Burnt House Farm and Rodney Road as the Backwell SDL. However, discussed below are
those elements of the NLPIO that TW wish to provide comment on.

TW are broadly in agreement with the issues and challenges identified in the NLPIO with
regard to the Backwell SDL. We would note that consideration will be given to local Green
Belt amendments in the NLP. The existing Green Belt designation comes up to the South
side of Chelvey Lane and the access to the Backwell SDL from the A370 goes through the
Green Belt and could be considered for a local Green Belt amendment to form a more
permanent boundary, in line with NPPF para 136 that states “having regard to their intended
permanence in the long term, so they can endure beyond the plan period…..”.
