Generally this sets out a logical and reasonable approach to development in North Somerset, apart from our concerns over the SW Bristol Urban Extension.

The Document's vision is fairly locally distinctive, but I suggest the cumulative vision is a bit long. Likewise the objectives are fairly clear and well focused, although I would question if car parking is a truly strategic matter.

Core Strategy - Consultation Draft Chapter 4: Area Policies CS28: Weston-super-Mare CS28: Weston-super-Mare

Given evidence of the challenges to meeting the 9,000 dwelling requirement, it is reassuring that any shortfall will be met in the Weston urban area. Is this achievable, and what evidence would support this? Need to link homes and jobs in the urban extension - but not clear whether the intention is to link all housing to employment growth in the general Weston locality. If growth in the urban area is not linked to jobs then it could undermine delivery rates in the urban extension.

In terms of employment you have allocated 12.1 ha of employment development at Portishead, Clevedon, Nailsea. Whilst this is understandable in terms of increasing self containment I wonder how this accords with your approach to Green Belt/Greenfield development. If this is largely development on previously developed land, are there sufficient opportunities to ensure this is deliverable?

The Policy on the Airport is a little vague at the moment, but I would assume that by the time you publish your Core Strategy, things would be considerably clearer with respect to the current planning application. As you will be aware the Government are currently consulting on a National Planning Statement on port development. As you move towards submission I suggest that you monitor how this document progresses, ensuring that there is no conflict with the finalised version of this document.

A number of steps will be needed to ensure document will be sound when submitted. Should plan positively for 9,000 dwellings at SW Bristol. Understand concerns about delivery rates, but better to plan for whole figure and address any shortfall by monitoring.Only linked new settlement option would maximise sustainability benefits. Accept that nowhere else that such a quantity of housing could be accommodated sustainably.
