1. The Nurse Trust is the owner of the triangle of land bounded by Sheepway, the former railway line and the Moor Gate development on the eastern edge of Portishead. It is noted that one of the three options for a new railway station serving Portishead (Option 3) would be sited on land owned by the Trust.

2. The Trust fully supports the re-opening of the Bristol-Portishead branch line along its former route. It is clear that there are a number of issues relating to the three options for the railway station in terms of cost, the impacts on residential areas and access and transport.

3. The Trust is more than willing to engage with the Council and third parties regarding the delivery of the re-opened railway line including, if the option is chosen by the local planning authority, the siting of the new railway station on the land owned by The Nurse Trust.
