  • Planning policy is meant to conserve and protect Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB)
  • The proposed Mendip Spring/Churchill development is adjacent to the Mendip Hills (AONB) and will damage it.
  • This area is more environmentally, ecologically and landscape-sensitive than the Green Belt immediately south of Bristol. 
  • The environmental/ecological damage would be permanent -  impossible to mitigate against.
Mendip Spring will damage AONB
