NS Consultation on Core Housing Policy

Posted on 9th November, 2015

Message received from North Somerset Council Consultations:

NORTH SOMERSET CORE STRATEGY CONSULTATION ON CONSEQUENTIAL CHANGES TO REMITTED POLICIES CS6, CS14, CS19, CS28, CS30, CS31, CS32, CS33

 

The Core Strategy is the strategic planning document for North Somerset covering the period 2006-2026 and was adopted in 2012. 

 

As a result of a legal challenge, it has been necessary to review a number of policies and to propose some changes. The most significant of these is that the number of homes required over the plan period has been increased to 20,985 from 14,000. This revised number is now formally part of the plan. The next stage is to review the other remitted policies in the light of this change. This is to find out if the need to accommodate a larger number of homes means that we need to change the strategy for how these homes will be delivered across North Somerset.

 

The Council has set out which changes it proposes to make and is now seeking your views on both the general approach we have taken and also the proposed changes themselves.

The policies concerned are:-

  • CS6 Green Belt
  • CS14 Distribution of new housing
  • CS19 Strategic gaps
  • CS28 Weston-super-Mare
  • CS30 Weston Villages
  • CS31 Clevedon, Nailsea and Portishead
  • CS32 Service Villages
  • CS33 Infill villages, smaller settlements and countryside

All representations received will be forwarded to the new planning Inspector who will undertake the examination of the proposed policy changes, arrange hearings as appropriate and make recommendations. The Council will then be able to re-adopt these remitted policies.

 

The last day for comments is Friday 18 December. The easiest way to respond to the document is online.

Comments can also be emailed to planning.policy@n-somerset.gov.uk or sent to Planning Policy Team,  North Somerset Council, Town Hall, Walliscote Grove Road, Weston-super-Mare, BS23 1UJ.

 

To view background documents relating to the re-examination of the remitted policies visit the Councils Core Strategy webpage.  If you require any further information on this consultation please contact Michael Reep on 01934 426775 or email michael.reep@n-somerset.gov.uk
