PUBLISHED: 08:00 07 May 2018 Sarah Robinson John Penrose has shared his view on the JSP plans. Archant A housing masterplan should have been ‘bolder’ by recommending multi-storey housing blocks for places like Weston-super-Mare instead of creating new ‘garden villages’, according to MP John Penrose. Mr Penrose, MP for Weston and the surrounding villages, was responding to a consultation for the West of England’s Joint Spatial Plan (JSP) when he made the comments. The JSP was created by authorities, including North Somerset Council, to lay out a vision for house-building in the West of England up to 2036. More than 25,000 homes are proposed for the district, with about 105,000 earmarked for the West of England region. Thousands of consultation comments were published this week, including Mr Penrose’s letter. The JSP includes proposals for two ‘garden villages’ – one next to Banwell with 1,900 homes and another by Churchill with 2,675 homes. Mr Penrose said these were ‘misleadingly’ called garden villages, and would be better-described as towns. He said he was ‘delighted’ to see a committing to building ‘up not out’ in towns such as Weston included in the JSP. MORE: Is a Banwell bypass in return for 2,000 homes… Read full this story
