The new Station Road/A370 link would be detrimental to the local environment, causing significant negative ecological impact, especially on Backwell Lake. It would also damage the village feel as Nailsea and Backwell would no longer have any visual separation and effectively turn into one big settlement.

I am writing to object to the proposed 700 houses for Backwell, almost doubling it in size and turning our village into a so called ‘transport hub’.

I find it very disturbing to see that you are apparently carrying on as if nothing at all had been said in objection to the JSP by a very large proportion of residents in Backwell, including myself - and as far as I can ascertain, by the populations of other afflicted areas around us as well.

I understand North Somerset needs to build new houses, but to consider this plan before the JSP has been looked at seems premature. To double the size of Backwell by building a huge estate at Grove Farm does not seem the most sensible way of increasing the housing stock in the county. Backwell will no longer be a village but a Transport Hub.

Concern that the highway proposals will exacerbate Portishead's commuting transport issues.

The impact of the development on surrounding settlements needs to be considered and mitigated as necessary. In particular, the effect of the proposed Station Road to A370 link which will increase traffic on the Long Ashton bypass, already adversely impacted by the SBLR.

Backwell needs suitable housing for downsizing.
