2: Comments on the Sustainability Appraisal

If you have any comments on the Sustainability Appraisal please tell us below:

At present in Table 3.1 under lack of suitable land remaining you make reference that "The Local Plan 2020 will look at refreshing the settlement boundaries where appropriate, in order to protect the countryside from inappropriate development."

Under the document there is limited acknowledgment or recognition that there are areas of villages which are in the Green Belt and outside the settlement boundary but are exactly the same as the rest of the village (Frampton Cotterell) in terms of development and connectivity.

Consideration needs to be given to refreshing settlement boundaries and Green Belt in order to both protect inappropriate development but to also acknowledge areas which are already developed. Only providing one lens that changes to settlement boundary will protect development doesn't acknowledge that changes to settlement boundaries are required to encourage development in appropriate areas that have historically been inappropriately excluded.
