The relief road being proposed by Banwell is something that the residents have wanted for a long time. However, the addition of a new ‘garden village’, the destruction of currently green and open space without assessment of other potential land (i.e. at Ashton Vale) is very poor. Congresbury Parish Council cannot support this vision on the current basis given the lack of strategic planning. There is great uncertainty about employment bases and transport issues which will impact Congresbury from the two proposed garden villages.


Allocation of land at Backwell only after full assessment of other options (i.e. Ashton Vale)
