We also welcome NSC's restatement of this policy. we would object to any change to the Green Belt, especially on the south side of Bristol. It is essential that we maintain a strategic gap between North Somerset and Bristol. The minute any building occurs around Bristol, you will see Bristol Council and the Mayor argue that the city boundaries should be extended to include the new developments; wWe would then end up with the sort of massive developments that are occurring on the north side of the city. 

We lived in an area many years ago that was in the Bristol Council area and we found they have no interest in making decisions for the benefit of the people who live in the area but most definitely their decisions are driven by profit. I have found North Somerset Council's approach to be totally different and during some of the meetings I have attended I believe they work in the interest of the people in their constituency. The divide between North Somerset and Bristol must stay in place.

I believe as time goes by developers will try to put pressure on NSC to give up the Green Belt and their only drive will be profit, they do not care about the value of the land for its beauty, I pray North Somerset Council will stay strong on this.

Do you consider it necessary to participate at the oral part of the examination? No
