5.1.2 It is noted the need to phase development in relation to the delivery of the Banwell Bypass and other local road improvements. It will be important to ensure the delivery of other smaller sites in the short term which will not be as reliant on upfront infrastructure.

5.1.3 The proposed garden village lies within an area assessed as having high landscape sensitivityin the Landscape Sensitivity Assessment 2018 (i.e. if developed for housing could result in substantial harm) therefore it is considered the 1,900 dwellings proposed is optimistic.

The delivery of other smaller sites in the short term must not be overlooked.
