The road infrastructure is inadequate – many of the roads are little more than single lane and have a huge number of with potholes and sections that flood in heavy rain. The lanes are frequently used by horses, walkers and cyclists, and the volume of traffic would be hazardous to all.

There are no jobs for additional residents so they would all have to commute which would further exacerbate the traffic and parking problems.

There is a misconception that building so called “affordable” houses will attract young people to Nailsea. House prices in Nailsea are no less than Bristol and considerably more than W-S-M, both of which have superior facilities. Nailsea has virtually nothing for young people in which is why both my daughters left without a second thought, one to Bristol and one to W-S-M.

The primary schools are already over-subscribed so where would all the young people send their children.

The Health centres are already at full capacity

The proposed site is too far from the town centre facilities

The size and style of the properties Barratts have proposed are totally out of keeping with the existing properties.

This is a green field site of which we are custodians and the proposed construction would cause a huge loss of habitat for our diverse wildlife.

There are a number of bat roosts in the vicinity which would prohibit building, legally.

The site was bought by Nailsea Town Council as a site of recreational purposes for the people of Nailsea “IN PERPETUITY”

Nailsea may have an aged population now, but within a decade that will change as the aged naturally succumb to the passing of time and are replaced by a younger generation without the introduction of unnecessary additional housing and the destruction of an irreplaceable environment.
