DM19-Green Infrastructure The criteria suggests that the corridor of most watercourses could justifiably be allocated as Local Green Space on the grounds of biodiversity (the freshwater environment is so small compared to land and sea), reducing flood risk (setting back and allowing access to maintain) and public access/ recreation. The list of Local Green Space does include the banks of the New Blind Yeo but otherwise seems to miss several waterside sites. A key site where this is relevant is

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

DM19 Green infrastructure - we broadly welcome this policy but advise the principles and requirements for GI should feature throughout the Plan to better reflect its multi-functional and cross-cutting nature. We would expect green infrastructure requirements to feature strongly in the Place Making policies. We also advise the Council to consider preparing a green infrastructure strategy as this would provide an opportunity to identify a strategic GI framework for North Somerset that reflects an

Not sound Not consistent with national policy Comments: The policy indicates that financial contributions will be sought where it is not possible, practical or desirable to make provision for green infrastructure on sites of 10 or more dwellings. The Glossary (page 174) defines Green infrastructure as comprising: "the strategically planned and delivered network of high quality green spaces and other environmental features and includes parks, open spaces, playing fields, woodlands, allotments

The North West Nailsea Protection Group strongly support Nailsea Town Council's request for a greenbelt review. The Town Council has attempted, over many years, to have the bite of land at north east Nailsea taken out of the Green belt. It needs to be recognised that the green belt boundary around that bite was initially too tightly drawn around the town's urban boundary preventing uses of the bite that would make the town more sustainable. When Nailsea's age structure is allowed to settle down

DM19: Green Infrastructure The Trust would welcome being involved in the consultation on the emerging SPD when it is produced. With regard to the detailed wording, we would recommend a further bullet point to cover the protection and enhancement of biodiversity interest within GI as outlined in the Core Strategy Policy CS9 and to link with Policy DM9 and 10. We support the reference to gardens and their design and layout relating to the wider GI where possible.

We write on behalf of the owners of No. 60 Station Road Nailsea to support the removal of the allocation of the land to the rear of No. 60 Station Road as Amenity Space as currently shown on the adopted Local Plan Proposals Map. We note a number of objections from local residents to this deallocation who are resistant to development of this particular site and have requested that the site along with the wider area be designated as Local Green Space. In response the site is privately owned and i

The Town Council continues to believe that the Core Strategy (CS6) is fundamentally flawed by not addressing a planning consideration as critical as Green Belt. This approach undermines the planning goals of sustainability, self-containment and mixed and balanced communities. The area of land proposed as a Strategic Gap should be designated as Green Belt. The Town Council continues to support employment development on the north east side of the town on land which is within the Green Belt (Re
