A. J. and G. G. Thomas The JSP acknowledges there is a need for up to 105,000 dwellings between 2016 – 2036 across four Local Authorities. Of the overall housing target 32,200 would be affordable. To achieve the delivery of homes JSP should:-

- Allocate sites in sustainable locations close to employment and near to existing Highway Networks and/or planned infrastructure improvements;

- Review the Green Belt measured against sustainability.

The Land North of High Street, Iron Acton, South Gloucestershire, can assist in planning for the long term local need including delivery of Affordable Housing and provide a more structured and flexible approach to the piecemeal reliance on Brownfield Land with its associated constraints and remediation.

As with Greenfield Sites generally within the Green Belt and adjacent to settlement boundaries, there are benefits in bringing forward the land as it is technically under constrained and may be capable of sustaining higher levels of Affordable Housing.

Green Belt Land adjacent to settlements are in locations that benefit from excellent connectivity and access to key employment services.

A. M. James By recognising the needs of the West of England span both town and country and that new housing is needed in the urban areas, large towns AND large villages. Without new housing in these villages, the future provision of services and facilities cannot be assured and crucially there will be very limited opportunities for affordable housing. If all future development is directed towards urban areas at the expense of rural areas the countryside will regress and villages will revert to dormitory settlements and no demand will arise for sustaining services and improving public transport. 14 Dec 2016 20:57
A. N. Simmonds In addition to Backwell's contribution of an extra 800 houses, it is proposed that Nailsea will have to find land for 2,8oo new hones. It thus appears that Backwell and Nailsea will be expected to absorb a disproportionate share of the expansion in the population of North Somerset. Surely in the interests of fairness, new developments should be spread across the North Somerset area not concentrated in the places where house builders/can maximise their profits 30 Jan 2017 09:34

The Land at Says Court Farm, South West of Yate can assist in planning for the long term local need including delivery of Affordable Housing and provide a more structured and flexible approach to the piecemeal reliance on Brownfield Land with its associated constraints and remediation.

As with Greenfield Sites generally within the Green Belt and adjacent to Settlement Boundaries, there are benefits in bringing forward the land as it is technically under constrained and may be capable of sustaining higher levels of Affordable Housing.

Green Belt Land adjacent to settlements are in locations that benefit from excellent connectivity and access to key employment services.

As identified on Plan, the Says Court Farm/Land South West of Yate is currently agricultural/solar farm use but is well located and subject only to Flood Zone 1.

Adam Silcock Restoring or converting old unused buildings instead of new builds. Properties could be converted to flats to create more housing that houses. Local authorities taking the lead to convert at a lower non profit cost and then passing the savings on. 18 Dec 2016 18:41
Adam Smith Houses need to be located in locations where infrastructure is in place to support so many people. Some locations have infrastructure that can be improved upon. Therefore rural villages are not appropriate for these developments. Charfield is not a sustainable location. There is no infrastructure at all for making it twice it's size. Affordable homes would not be wanted in Charfield or required as it would be useless housing families in areas with no form of transport for reaching places in order to seek work or shops. Affordable homes need to be in places where the residents can easily use public transport or walk to services. 18 Dec 2016 21:13
