Paras 4.34 and 4.35 seek to explain why the Council may permit residential development in the town centre area to proceed in isolation rather than in association with an employment-led strategy for elsewhere. The point at issue here is that the justification for doing so is based upon the need for flexibility - a need that the Council appears oblivious of in numerous instances elsewhere in its proposed policies. All housing should be treated equally in this respect.

FOSBR (Friends of Suburban Bristol Railways) supports the policy of 'minimis[ing] the generation of car trips by concentrating uses around the train station and improving the public transport infrastructure', and of 'creating an office quarter around the railway station on a number of vacant or underused sites in this location'.

This section relates to a "9,000 home urban extension and the creation of over 10,000 jobs". Whilst it says 'over' 10,000 jobs, the split doesn't correlate with the 1.5 jobs per household quoted by GVA Grimley. Please clarify.

Supports mixed use regeneration of the town centre. Level of retail floorspace needs to be carefully balanced, to avoid increases in trips from other settlements with existing retail centres. Development within the Gateway Area needs to be carefully planned to ensure the objective of minimising car trips by concentrating uses around the station and improving public transport infrastructure is actually delivered. Seeks continuing involvement with the Weston Advisory Group.

The reference to the tests as set out in PPS6, within the policy wording will need to be replaced with reference to the new guidance contained in PPS4. Kilmartin Weston Limited supports specific reference to the redevelopment potential of Dolphin Square. The aspiration to provide high quality design is also strongly supported. Kilmartin Weston Limited supports text at paragraph 4.37 identifying a joined up approach to the delivery of regeneration.

Seaward Hotel, Knightstone Road. This key site forming part of the Sea Front is not referred to by the CS. Notwithstanding the site's location within the Conservation Area, there is considered significant development potential for a scheme involving redevelopment of the existing hotel premises and their replacement with a new scheme of substantial height and proportions and which would deliver a new hotel as well as new apartments, supported by on-site car parking.

Victoria Square. This is a multi-ownership site, which AGM Holdings have no ownership interest in. However, given that it is a key site which forms part of the regeneration proposals for Weston Sea Front, AGM are keen to see its future redevelopment secured. Given the difficulties associated with land assembly on this site, the Council should actively pursue their compulsory purchase powers to secure the site's future redevelopment.

A future redeveloped and viable Tropicana Site should be centred around a major water entertainment complex, with other associated leisure facilities, but also supported by significant new holiday accommodation, providing a major new destination on the Sea Front that would act as a destination for overnight guests, as well as daytime visitors.
