Core Strategy - Consultation Draft Chapter 3: Spatial Policies Delivering Strong and Inclusive Communities CS13: Scale of New Housing CS13: Scale of New Housing

  • Comment ID: 3573825/CSCD/8
  • Status: Accepted
Irrespective of the Council's political position in respect of the SWBUE there is no reasoned justification with regard to the planning considerations to be applied that support any reduction in the total number of dwellings to be provided in the District under this policy.

  • Comment ID: 3573825/CSCD/11
  • Status: Accepted
The requirement for 82% : 18% split as proposed in the wording should be more flexible. The proposed imposition of a financial contribution towards the provision of affordable housing on sites of less than 15 dwellings (or sites of less than 0.5 ha) is unreasonable. The requirement for the 1.5 B jobs per dwelling (or any amendment thereof) should be specifically stated as not applying to the affordable housing element.

The strictly limited scope for residential development is not appropriate for those settlements currently with a settlement boundary. Reference to employment development should now be reviewed. The requirement that employment development will not be permitted in the open countryside should be deleted. Reference to conversions in the rural areas in the proposed policy should be made.

In respect of point 2) the words "delivered early in the development" should be deleted as this will be an unrealistic proposition in many instances due to viability considerations. In respect of point 8) there should be greater flexibility than is implied by simply prioritising previously developed land in this way.

  • Status: Accepted
Health Impact Assessments should not be required as part of the planning application stage, adding to the already significant front-end loading (and costs) of information sought by local planning authorities. There should also be a clear definition as to what these will comprise. The requirement in point 2) of the proposed policy must be subject to the viability considerations of the proposed development.

The area of search to be the whole of North Somerset should be amended to say that with regard to the Service Villages it is the Service Village and its immediate environs and economic hinterland that is the relevant area of search. In respect of 2) any Council land so identified must have already been formally declared to be surplus and be genuinely available for purchase by private treaty.

  • Status: Accepted
The proposals relating to Clevedon/Nailsea/Portishead should permit a greater scale of residential development than that proposed. In respect of prioritising previously developed land, there is a need for flexibility. The target for net density of 40 dpha is supported as being more appropriate. The settlement boundaries will need to be amended. The deletion of all other settlement boundaries is considered unnecessary and counter-productive.
