-       Tickenham Parish Council is extremely concerned that if the proposed development takes place, a substantial amount of traffic will pass through Tickenham on the B3130 and traffic using the Causeway is likely to increase considerably: such increases would be far beyond the capacity of the existing roads; no consideration whatsoever has been given to alternative routes to reduce traffic through the village;

-         North Somerset Council is urged to produce a transport plan prior to the approval of any development, including links to the motorway and airport;

-         The Council is concerned that the water table appears to have risen since the last planning application for development of the Pound Lane site; this may be due to DEFRA's policy of funding the stopping up of some rhynes to slow down run-off by using them as water retention ponds;
