DM:11 Landscape Support. This policy is very welcome, although it comes too late to mitigate existing damage, especially from light pollution (Bristol Airport, Clevedon FC etc) or lack of landscaping (Smart Systems a particular blot on the landscape). The policy intentions are excellent. In the Background section, would it be possible to remove the words "Where required", or at least to clarify the circumstances where this would be a requirement (presumably in all rural / semi-rural areas and i

North Somerset Landscape Character Assessment SPD This SPD is listed under "Other documents" in DM19 but it is not listed as an SPD in the Council's Local Development Framework web page http://www.n-somerset.gov.uk/Environment/Planning+policy/Local+Development+Framework. Has that document been formally adopted as an SPD in the LDF. Should this SPD be listed under "Other Documents" in DM11, which also refers to it? Should this SPD be listed under "Other Documents" in other policies that refer

Policy DM11: Landscape Similarly to biodiversity (see comments in relation to Policy DM9 above), a balanced approach should be taken to reconciling the interests of landscape protection with the need to meet requirements for development in sustainable locations. The skeleton policy provisions seem to assume a more balanced approach than those relating to biodiversity. However, it will be necessary to accommodate urban extensions outside existing urban limits in order to meet the district's d

DM11 - Landscape The Policy intentions aspire to "Protect areas of greatest tranquillity from development". To be effective this aspiration needs to be carried forward into the policy. The final bullet point calls for particular care against light pollution in areas where dark skies are an important feature of the area. It would be sensible and useful for the council to introduce a designation for such areas and to include them on the proposals map as planning constraints. Noise also impacts

Policy DM11: 'Landscape' The policy indicates that all development should avoid the introduction of harmful, incongruous or intrusive elements 'into views'. We consider that this text should be revised and clarified. Views of importance should be classified and assessed, but not all views to and from a development are 'important', or involve sensitive receptors.
