Sites and Policies Plan Consultation Draft Development Management Policies SP1

  • Comment ID: 8135201//1
  • Status: Accepted
This policy is effectively an imposition from Central Government and a repetition of the Framework, notwithstanding the expectation that national policy is not repeated in Local Plans. The presumption is in the Framework as the proviso to enable development to come forward in the absence of proper provision through an up to date Local Plan. Seeking sustainable development in the terms of the Framework and this policy should be the dominant aim of the Plan itself however, and the Plan should make

The policy is written as a standard development control policy to enable the Council to consider, and if it wishes, refuse applications for renewable energy facilities. The Plan should do more than this however, planning positively to promote types of development that are likely to be most effective in lowering the carbon demand and which are able to practically incorporate low carbon technologies as a means of providing heat and power to the accommodation within the scheme and beyond.

Since it deals with development sites, it is part of the role of the Sites and Policies Plan to provide for the definition of Green Belt boundaries if and when the strategic part of the Local Plan, the Core Strategy, changes the general extent of the Green Belt. The Sites and Policies Plan, through this policy or preferably an additional Green Belt policy, should therefore at least explain how Green Belt boundaries will be dealt with, with what criteria for their definition for instance. This wo

Sites and Policies Plan Consultation Draft Transport DM20

  • Comment ID: 8135201//4
  • Status: Accepted
The policy on Major Highway Schemes provides for the prevention of development that would prejudice the implementation of the listed schemes. This policy, or preferably an additional policy in the context of the Core Strategy when it is finalised, should make it clear that the maximum advantage should be taken of the enhancements to the transport network that these schemes constitute when development locations are chosen and in the way development is designed. This would serve to improve the ove

  • Status: Accepted
The background or context for this policy is set to change and therefore the policy and its constituent parts will have to change. The housing and mixed use developments to be shown on the Proposals Map and to be included in Schedules 1 and 3 in the context of CS13 and CS14 in particular of the Core Strategy when it comes to be revised and adopted, will need to include the South West Bristol urban extension that will be required. The number of dwellings to be identified for this development as p

  • Status: Accepted
The requirement in the policy for the type of housing that should be the emphasis at the Weston Villages should be extended to the South West Bristol urban extension that will be required and which will need to be part of this Plan when it is adopted.

Sites and Policies Plan Consultation Draft Employment in Weston-super-Mare WSM19

  • Comment ID: 8135201//7
  • Status: Accepted
Though the Council is acknowledging a fundamental strategic issue here, the proposed development and the imposition of this policy neither get to the heart of the issue nor will provide an effective means of addressing the issue. The basic issue is that because of historic circumstances to do with development values, planning policies and opportunities arising, large numbers of people live in Weston-super-Mare whilst working in Bristol, and far too many of those travelling into Bristol do so by

The background or context for this policy is set to change and therefore the policy and its constituent parts will have to change. The mixed use developments to include employment uses to be shown on the Proposals Map and to be included in Schedule 3 in the context of the Core Strategy when it comes to be revised and adopted, will need to include the urban extension to the South West of Bristol that will be required.
