Abstract: We introduce the concept of cohesive families of neighborhood bases. We thereby obtain conditions necessary and sufficient to ensure that a separable space be second countable, and sufficiency conditions for complete collectionwise normality. As by-products we obtain metrizability criteria. We prove, e.g., that a $ {T_1}$ space is metrizable iff it has a refined development $ \{ {G_n}:n \in N\} $ such that $ \{ {B_p}:p \in X\} $ with $ {B_p} = \{ {\text{St}}(p,{G_n}):n \in N\} $ is cohesive.
