I do not believe that this is a suitable site for strategic growth.  It does not make sense from an environmental, social or economic perspective. The lack of sustainable transport links to employment is a major issue. This site should never have been proposed. It would be much more appropriate to develop land closer to Bristol, including the land parcels in the Green Belt now contained by the South Bristol Link Road.
