This policy is of particular significance in considering any proposed development at North West Nailsea and therefore relevant investigation is required before the area can be scheduled for development.

It is suggested that the area around Holy Trinity Church and the Tithe Barn on Church Lane becomes a conservation area. The Town Council is carrying out an assessment of buildings of significance in the town not covered by a listing or part of the existing conservation area.

CORE STRATEGY 1. Nailsea Town Council (NTC) broadly supports the North Somerset Core Strategy Publication version. It supports the vision for Nailsea as set out in Vision 4 and agrees with the approach of the unitary authority (as set out in the Priority Objectives of the Core Strategy) that "strategic development" will be focused at Weston-s-Mare whilst employment growth throughout the area will seek to "support greater self containment" and Nailsea should be a "thriving, prosperous settleme

The Town Council wishes to consider the future of the Town in the context of the opportunities and constraints which impinge on it but to do so in the widest sense and not to be constrained in this assessment. It continues to stress its view that future development strategies within and around the town should be considered in the context of a Green Belt boundary which might be reviewed and/or amended in exceptional circumstances. This was the situation which was set out in the Draft Core Strat

The Town Council continues to believe that the Core Strategy (CS6) is fundamentally flawed by not addressing a planning consideration as critical as Green Belt. This approach undermines the planning goals of sustainability, self-containment and mixed and balanced communities. The area of land proposed as a Strategic Gap should be designated as Green Belt. The Town Council continues to support employment development on the north east side of the town on land which is within the Green Belt (Re

The issues of traffic and safety, and transport issues would be significant in relation to any proposed development at North West Nailsea. It is proposed that a Building Site Agreement should be considered as a condition for relevant planning approvals where the scale of the development has an adverse impact on local highways management during the works. The intention would be to highlight potential highways issues before a scheme commences and to try and identify measures to mitigate the imp

The Town Council is not aware that the route "Off Mizzymead Road (rear of Porlock Gardens and Ash Hayes Drive)" is of strategic significance. The entire route of the Festival Way should be shown on the map as a Strategic Cycle Route. The Town Council requests that the following route from Millennium Park to North Drove be designated as a Strategic Cycle Route: ? At Scotch Horn turn left on to Brockway. ? Bear right on to Station Road. ? Turn left at the mini-roundabout. ? Turn right at t

Parking provision in any new development is important. The Town Council is also concerned by the impact of parking issues as a result of the conversion of garages for residential use.

The maintenance of free car parking in Nailsea is essential in supporting the economic activity of the Town (including non-retail employment) and in its role as a hub for nearby villages.

POPULATION AND HOUSING 3. The main threats to the maintenance of the Core Strategy vision is that the population of Nailsea is declining and without action will continue to do so, and also that its demographic profile will become increasingly skewed toward older age groups.1 4. The Town Council supports a policy of limited growth of housing, to balance local housing needs and employment. Limited growth is not defined in terms of numbers, as the Town Council is concerned that the approach to

The 2011 Census results highlight the fact that relative to North Somerset and the south west as a whole, Nailsea has a relative oversupply of 4-bed properties, and an undersupply of 1 and 2 bed properties. The statistics in the Census also highlight that Nailsea has a high level of under-occupancy (i.e. the number of rooms/bedrooms in a property is higher than would be expected in relation to the number of people resident at the property). Coupled with a reducing average figure for the number o

The Town Council supports a flexible and imaginative approach to the use of all retail areas and not just upper floors. In appropriate cases mixed use including residential development in the Town Centre should be encouraged.

The principle of maintaining a strategic gap between Nailsea and Backwell has always been supported by the planning authority and the Town Council remains convinced that this should be achieved through a Green Belt designation. This piece of land, to the south of the town and vital in maintaining the physical separation of Nailsea and Backwell, has been under development pressure for more than 25 years. The Town Council thinks that the designation of this area as a Strategic Gap is inadequate i

North Somerset Council needs to assess how the existing employment sites could be better used. The preference for the town is for office-type development and for industrial starter units not warehousing.

The Town Council requests the following areas are defined as local green space ( see map). 1. GAULACRE FIELDS Area west of Engine Lane defining the western limits of the urban area, which is of strategic value on planning grounds. 2. ENGINE LANE Land to the north of Gaulacre Fields used for sport and recreation. 3.
