It is the duty of planners to preserve the quality of AONB's. Parts of this one are SSSl's and Ancient Monuments, and used by walkers and cyclists from Bristol for peaceful recreation .This development would severely damage the AONB by spoiling views, and Increasing noise from the proposed dual carriageway. This area is more sensitive, in terms of ecology, the environment and landscape, than the Green Belt site just south of Bristol.

Concern that development proposed would damage the AONB.
