Where will the non-strategic sites be and settlement boundaries? (page 19)

2.16 The Council are not currently making reference to specific sites at this point but do suggest that those shown on the Council’s latest Strategic Housing Land Availability Assessment (2018) give a strong indication of preference.

2.17 Our client’s land has not been promoted previously, albeit it would have been released as part of the large Ashton Vale development should that have come forward.

2.18 The site is currently located within the Green Belt but is contained by the relatively recently completed South Bristol Link Road. The site performs poorly in Green Belt terms and the Council are actively considering its release (see page 15) in conjunction with land within Bristol City Council’s administrative boundary.

2.19 We welcome the consideration of this land’s release from the Green Belt and set out the reasons why we feel this should be pursued by the Council in section 3 of these representations.

Summary
Our client’s land has not been promoted previously, albeit it would have been
released as part of the large Ashton Vale development should that have come
forward. We welcome the consideration of this land’s release from the Green Belt and set out the reasons why we feel this should be pursued by the Council in section 3 of these representations.
