A. J. and G. G. Thomas The economic and employment needs identified for the JSP are that 82,500 jobs will be created across the Plan Period of which 78,400 jobs will be supported through Enterprise Zones and Areas.

Statements within the JSP suggest that if the JSP is to be considered Positively Prepared it must ensure that economic and employment growth is supported by sufficient housing growth in sustainable locations consistent with the objectives of the economic growth. Currently the JSP is not seeking to allocate development in near proximity to employment areas and neither is it seeking to release land in areas where employment growth and transport improvements are being directed.

The NPPF requires the Council to positively seek opportunities to meet in full development needs for the area and, whilst balancing the respective constraints of Green Belt assess that this objective is not compromised. It is important therefore that development is directed at the most sustainable locations.

It is understood that the Joint Transport Study will allow Yate to see the benefit of a number of improved travel modes including smart Motorway, two improved Junctions, strategic cycle routes and MetroBus extension.

Yate is a location that should be delivering much needed growth throughout the Plan Period, assisting in the economic performance of the settlement, enhancing its retail offer and promoting much needed revitalisation of its services.

The NPPF requires the Council to positively seek opportunities to meet in full development needs for the area and, whilst balancing the respective constraints of Green Belt assess that this Objective is not compromised. It is important therefore that development is directed at the most sustainable locations.

The potential Land at Says Court Farm/South West of Yate has the potential to come forward for residential development as a deliverable and sustainable option because:-

• Yate is capable of accommodating growth given the range of services that exist;

• Residential development can be in keeping with established residential development;

• The site adjoins the existing employment/built up area and is considered suitable for sustainable development, easy Public Transport and Highway access is available with the prospects for improved infrastructure connectivity.

Abbey Manor Group Limited (Jud… economic and employment needs have changed and no longer solely rely on the provision of land to meet those needs. however whilst this document hints at this as a reason for not allocating any more land it does not consider or explain how support for economic growth may come forward 19 Dec 2016 17:59
Adam Smith No. Not by building in Charfield.
Where is the employment that has been identified to meet the needs of 1000 new homes? The only adequate employment is at least 9 miles away. There is no other services in the area without the need of transport of some kind. At present the use of a car is essential for commuting, shopping, doctors, dentist, secondary school. Therefore the proposed strategy does not make adequate provision to address the economic and employment needs of the West of England.

Adam Sydney No, i dont think it does.
Just becuase you propose some extra bussinesses it doesnt mean that its going to be a adequate for all those extra people.
Charfeild is perfect just the way it is.

Adrian Betts & Kerry Irvine We do not have sufficient information for the West of England to make a judgment. 10 Jan 2017 10:24
Adrian Edmonds No the need is for good quality jobs in the tech sector. We are not an industrial, manufacturer, or engineering region. And with tech come money and university development. This is the future this is happening now affordable housing is not for the middle class. Where will these people work? 18 Dec 2016 20:21
