We would like North Somerset to ensure that the Bleadon Parish Environment, including nature and wildlife sites, continues to be protected under the existing constraints and policies and that the fields remain as they are where at all possible.

Policy DM9: Nature Conservation This policy should be worded to reflect the balanced approach that is necessary towards reconciling the objective to protect biodiversity with meeting the needs for development. In some circumstances this may mean accepting a significant adverse impact on biodiversity. The requirement to demonstrate 'overriding' need for development where significant adverse impact occurs implies a negative presumption against development. This should not necessarily be the cas

DM9 -Nature Conservation This policy says that "development that would adversely affect structures, feeding grounds or landscape features used by greater and lesser horseshoe bats will not normally be permitted". Different sources of evidence will not be given the same weight by all authorities. Developers need to know, at an early stage, what features of development are likely to weigh against their proposals. This policy should either give that information or should indicate where it can be f

DM9 Nature conservation - the policy needs to recognise the international importance and high level of protection afforded to the Severn Estuary, which is designated a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI), Special Area of Conservation (SAC), Special Protection Area (SPA) and Ramsar site. We also advise the policy should be strengthened by seeking net gains in biodiversity in accordance Page 2 of 4 with NPPF paragraph 9.

Policy DM9: Nature Conservation The Trust supports the wording in the Policy Intentions particularly the positive approach outlined in encouraging the enhancement and protection of species and habitats in bullet point two. There appears to be a typo in the first sentence of the Background Section. In the Policy's fifth paragraph, the Trust recommends that the following wording should be added to the final sentence: '..substantive interest present'.. and will not be permitted unless the harm c

Policy DM9: 'Nature Conservation' The policy advises that development proposals may need to be accompanied by a 'full ecological survey' as part of the planning application. In most cases planning applications that relate to or affect ecologically sensitive areas will need only to be accompanied by a desk-based survey and Phase 1 ecology survey, albeit that in some cases further surveys may be required to be undertaken in advance of planning permission being granted.
