My view with regard to this development is based on the problems relating to the poor road system in gaining access to the A370. The lanes around Chelvey Church are dangerous when their is likely to be an extra 1000 plus cars using these lanes. However if Yougwood Lane is to be added the land south of the Uplands should be removed as it only represents 50 dwellings. I still contend that this land is Public Open Space following the purchase of the lane by Woodspring Council in 1976. This land was considered POS by the Nailsea Town Council but for an oversight in putting forward the field forward for Local Green Space status. The town must maintain it's Open Spaces for the benefit of it's public. This field south of the Uplands was refused development in 1976 and was subsequently purchased by Woodspring Council. It would be a tragedy if this land was taken from the public for housing with it's easy access to Morgans hill.
