Comment
    1. The draft Backwell Neighbourhood Plan proposed 6 of the Farleigh Fields as LGS. This Plan explained the importance of these fields to the local community, due to their beauty, historic significance, recreational value, tranquillity and richness of wildlife. The draft Neighbourhood Plan provides extensive evidence at Evidence Base J, K and L.
    2. Backwell Parish Council considers that there is overwhelming evidence that LGS status should be assigned to an area larger than the two fields proposed in the Site Allocation Consultation. The Parish Council notes that the area now proposed as LGS is less extensive than the area proposed by the landowner Charles Church which included parts of fields 4 and 6 as LGS. The Parish Council requests an explanation why such lesser area is now proposed.
    3. Backwell Parish Council requests that North Somerset Council reviews the extensive evidence (in the draft Neighbourhood Plan) that supports the allocation of additional areas at Farleigh Fields as LGS.
