It is my belief that the proposal for new housing in Backwell is excessive. The village is already based around a very busy road and does not have the infrastructure to support that any new people.  It would split the village in two.  The current Road system could never cope and the possible Road system would be too disruptive to the village and surrounding countryside.  Our countryside should be protected.  Rather than building lots more houses in every town and village it makes much more sense to build new towns e.g. Alongside the new link road.
