.1 Alder King Planning Consultants have been instructed by the University of Bristol to submit representations to North Somerset Council’s Local Plan 2036, ‘Issues and Options’ consultation.

1.2 If adopted, the Joint Spatial Plan (JSP) will be the strategic development plan for the West of England authorities and will set the development requirements for the constituent authorities as well as broad locations for growth in the form of strategic development locations up to 2036. It was submitted for independent examination in April 2018.

1.3 As a West of England authority, North Somerset Council are required to review and update its existing local plan alongside the emerging JSP in order to provide detailed guidance to support the JSP’s implementation.

1.4 These representations have been structured by looking first at the Mendip Spring (Churchill) Garden Village; how the design principles are evolving in the current masterplan and the Council’s alternative scenarios for accommodating the strategic growth. This includes a general commentary around the issues and options concept diagrams.

1.5 The second part of the representations assess the proposed changes to the Council’s settlement hierarchy and the options proposed for reviewing this. Whilst it is understood that this ‘Issues and Options’ consultation document does not propose specific sites for new development at this stage, these representations do refer to Land at Wyndhurst Farm, which has been submitted as part of the Council’s ‘Call for Sites’ and which would make a valuable contribution to ‘non-strategic’ growth over the plan period.

 

Summary
Land at Wyndhurst Farm, which has been submitted as part of the Council’s ‘Call for Sites’ and which would make a valuable contribution to ‘non-strategic’ growth over the plan period.
