Although not part of the current proposals, it is understood from Nailsea Town Council's Vision that there is support in Nailsea for development of land stretching from the Fire Station on Clevedon Road to Wraxall House to the north of existing houses in Nailsea. Preliminary sketches indicate a road from east to west through the suggested development which could be considered as a northern Nailsea Ring Road linking Pound Lane with Wraxall.  It has been suggested that the green belt could be maintained by providing green belt land elsewhere. The proposal would seriously damage the environmental riverine regime of this part of the Land Yeo valley which is home to locally rare wildlife and mesolithic archaeology.


Tickenham Parish Council is opposed to development of the green belt land from Clevedon Road, Nailsea, to Wraxall House in the Parish of Wraxall and Failand for dwellings and road infrastructure, particularly because of its value as open space, riverine rare animals’ habitat and the mesolithic archaeology of Wraxall and Failand
