Main masterplan - 5.14 page 157.
The Long Ashton Parish Council objects to any development so close to the village on land which lies to the east of Wild Country Lane, south of the railway.
Land proposed is in the Green Belt and much of it is Grade 2 agricultural land - good farming land and loss of this is unacceptable.
Access to the site from Wild Country Lane is unsuitable and proposed linkage onto the bypass is impractical. This will defeat the object of the bypass for the village.
Whilst we welcome any railway link we feel this is not the right site for this.
Only direct links will be via footbridges over the railway - leading to an isolated community.
