3.2 With regards to Clevedon, we support a small level of growth, albeit this would need to be considered alongside the likelihood of the JSP contingency site to the east of the town coming forward.

3.3 This is a factor that might limit the quantum of development allocated at Clevedon. Indeed, we consider it highly likely that the Council will need to
utilise this contingency site due to the likely deliverability issues associated with the other SDLs identified within the JSP.

3.4 However, the sustainability of Clevedon means that it should be the focus for at least some development over the plan period. As such, we support the
principle of small scale Green Belt releases around the town, following a detailed Green Belt review.
