Suggest that design principle 2 is changed to enable the Rodney Road and other phases of the Backwell SDL to come forward early in the plan period based on the available capacity identified through technical Transport Assessments.

TW are generally supportive of this proposed vision and the majority of the design principles set out for the Backwell SDL, but question the rationale and justification of design principle 2. Suggest it is changed to enable the Backwell SDL to come forward early in the plan period based on the available capacity identified through technical Transport Assessments.

HLM support the proposed SDLs at Nailsea and Backwell, which offer opportunities for sustainable patterns of growth on land that is available and unconstrained by Green Belt and AONB.

The 700 houses planned to be built on Grove Farm will increase a small respected and cherished village by 40%. It does NOT reflect the agreed expansion under the Neighbourhood Plan (which was given a seal of approval by the Government) and will destroy the village feel. The loss of arable agricultural land will only result in the destruction of valuable food producing services. Land which supports many species of endangered wildlife including the Greater Horseshoe Bat.

I live in Backwell Common and find your plans take no account if the feelings of the residents of Backwell . To even contemplate destroying the beautiful valley that is Backwell Common goes against everything that is good about living in the countryside. The Common is used daily by the residents of Backwell and Nailsea as a place of leisure whether that be walking, cycling, jogging, dog walking and to destroy that habitat by building a huge road through the valley is a disgrace.

I totally object to the proposed 700 houses for Backwell. This is not manageable, sustainable or tenable.

It is my belief that the proposal for new housing in Backwell is excessive. The village is already based around a very busy road and does not have the infrastructure to support that any new people. It would split the village in two. The current Road system could never cope and the possible Road system would be too disruptive to the village and surrounding countryside. Our countryside should be protected.

I strongly object to the proposal for a new Station Road – A370 link and the proposed timing of such a link in the first phase. Please see my comments above on the Nailsea and Backwell Transport Schemes. No detail of the proposed modifications to Station Road has been provided and this is needed in order to comment fully. I strongly object to the possibility of closing or restricting Station Road to through traffic.
