Sites and Policies Plan Consultation Draft Clevedon, Nailsea and Portishead PH3

We have lived on The Vale for 13 years so have seen the traffic problems increase throughout that time, so although fully support the opening of the railway line we do have strong views on the options proposed for the railway station and car parking. Options 1 and 2 would be the best solutions as surely a key objective for the success of the railway link is to enable people to walk to the station and not have to drive and park. I strongly oppose option 3 due to the out of town site meaning that

I'm mailing to express my worry to the potential plans for the Portishead Railway Station. I am a resident on Fennel Road on the Village Quarter in Portishead, and from what I can tell option 3 may have a substantial impact to the safety of families on Fennel Road and surrounding roads, as the roads will be used as overflow car parks for quick access by station users, as there is clearly not enough parking at the proposed station.

Comments on Place-Making Policies Several of the sites identified in this section of the document as listed below appear to have potential for wildlife and we therefore recommend that they should have additional wording to recognise potential ecological constraints, for example: 'development should be permitted subject to an ecological survey of the site as necessary, making provision for mitigation and compensation measures as appropriate as outlined in DM9.' The sites are: · WSM17 S

'I regard the railway for Portishead as vital, given the growth of the town. While I would have favoured the first option for a station, I take the points raised about the expense of a level crossing and think the Quays Road site (option b) is the best location. In my view, locating the station at Option 3 would be a very poor choice and would involve more car use while the Quays Road location would mean that many people (myself included) would choose to walk to and from the station. However, I

I write as a resident of the Village Quarter regarding the options for the proposed Railway Station in Portishead. We bought our house in 2008 and were fully aware that the disused railway line which is situated close to our house might be reinstated at some point in the future. I will be very interested to see the business case for the reopening of this line which I understand will be published in March 2014. I have not spoken to anyone who would use the railway line on anything more than an a

The Railway is needed. The station should be on site 1 for maximum access to the town centre and housing. Whilst car-parking may be an issue, there are vacant plots around - and the closer to the town, the less likely locals will travel to the station by car. The cost of the bridge should be capitalised over 50 years or more, so is probably quite affordable. The further the station is from the town, the less use it will get.

I strongly support the reopening of the railway to Bristol. Option 1 is the best site for the station, being nearest to the town centre, and has been the intended site for many years. However I think that the Quays Avenue bridge is not viable and believe that Network Rail should be pressed to permit a level crossing. Trains will be travelling slowly at this point and I'm sure that a safe crossing could be designed. I think a larger car park is necessary. Option 2 would be acceptable if option 1

We are emailing you in response to the online information regarding the potential sites for a new Portishead Railway Station. We moved to Portishead over 13 years ago from Bristol when we purchased a house in Peartree Field on The Vale which, at present, is a quiet cul-de-sac but is now adjacent to the proposed Option 2 site for the railway station. However, while we purchased the property on the understanding that the railway line to Portishead might be reopened at no time did we buy into t

I'm very much in favour of having a rail link with Bristol as it should reduce journey times, congestion and air pollution, which will only get worse once the Marina Developments are completed. However I would strongly object to the sighting of the station on land adjacent to Moor Farm as: - The station would effectively become a park and ride which would mean that it would not reduce the congestion coming out of Portishead. - Visitors to Portishead would be discouraged as they would be fac
