3. The main threats to the maintenance of the Core Strategy vision is that the population of Nailsea is declining and without action will continue to do so, and also that its demographic profile will become increasingly skewed toward older age groups.1

4. The Town Council supports a policy of limited growth  of housing, to balance local housing needs and employment. Limited growth is not defined in terms of numbers, as the Town Council is concerned that the approach to development must be based on the type and mix of housing rather than the quantity in order to address the Town’s specific needs.
