We are fully supportive of North Somerset Council's objection to the suggestion of a review of the green belt north of Nailsea as proposed by Nailsea Town council's vision for the future.

This beautiful stretch of countryside is in the green belt for a reason. With it's fauna,flora and the river which flows through, as well as the popular fishing lake, the surrounding communities are very fortunate to have this. It would be unforgivable to encroach on it with bricks and tarmac, not to mention the noise pollution that would destroy such a peaceful environment. It is a great asset that benefits the wider community and once lost can never be replaced.

At present there is no need to use green belt land for new development, there is sufficient land available that is not in the green belt and in a better position for road,rail and airport links.
