Please select one of the following statements:
  • Support the policy allocation with amendments (provide details in the comments box below)

SP 3 & SP9 - lot of new housing with no new employment envisaged leading to multiple extra car journeys given the rail and bus netwrok is inadequate for current needs

SP11 & SP7 - building on Green Belt in Backwell appears to be contradictory to the strategic policy especially given the potential for flooding in the area

SP6 - complete lack of evidence to show that Backwell's proximity to Nailsea and the train station is sufficient to justify such a hugely significant uplift in planned housing growth when compared with other villages in the District

SP10 - large new road infrastructure clearly required to meet needs of new housing in Backwell especially given the rail and bus netwrok is inadequate for current needs, and there appears to be no plan to improve these

SP 6 - Backwell will no longer be a village and will be spoilt for eternity by the proposed development
