2.4 There are a range of different types of settlements across South Gloucestershire, and therefore a vast array of issues to address which in our view could not be solved through the adoption of one specific ‘Building Block’ as a Spatial Strategy. It is our view that a blend of the Building Blocks should be put forward to address the different key priorities and issues raised within the consultation document, with a significant proportion of land being allocated on the edge of Bristol, followed by Market Towns, with rural towns and villages receiving a proportion of need to address their individual concerns (for example, sustaining local facilities, bringing in investment via CIL to local Parish Councils to spend on local infrastructure projects, and addressing surplus capacity available in Primary Schools).

2.5 We do not agree with the principle of allocating a new freestanding settlement if this involves land at Buckover, or anywhere in the Northern periphery of South Gloucestershire, being pursued as a development option. We have set out on many occasions within our representations to the JSP why we did not agree with such an approach and how it scored very poorly in terms of sustainability assessment. The problems associated with such a strategy primarily relate to the impact this will have on Carbon emissions and air quality as it will result in residents travelling South to work in Bristol; and the infrastructure funding gap that was identified within the evidence base to the JSP as a result of needing to significantly extend the MetroBus infrastructure to the North.

2.6 We therefore consider that a ‘blend’ of Building Blocks will be required to meet the needs of South Gloucestershire and unmet need from Bristol, which will include a review of Green Belt land and release for large scale allocation, followed by a proportionate level of development on the edge of Market Towns and Rural Villages/Settlements, such as Old Sodbury.
