1. North Somerset Local Plan 2036: Issues and Options Document Backwell Q20. Do you agree with the principles set out for Backwell and would you suggest any changes to these?

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.
