I object to the proposed inclusion of a housing development at Moor Road, Yatton in the Plan, for the following reasons: 

1. No adequate replacement facilities have been proposed for the junior rugby pitches that would be swallowed up by houses, as required under the Government's NPPF for Local Green Space.  Replacement facilities should be within the village of Yatton, readily and safely accessible by the many young people who use these facilities.  The Community Use Allocations policy in the Site Allocations Plan also provides for adequate provision for organized sport.

2.  The proposed access to the site is dangerous, being on a narrow residential road junction with a narrow bridge leading onto the lane over the moor.
