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

Regarding the portishead railway please make it into a cycle track and path. we don,t want anymore traffic in or around the village quarter and near Waitrose. I do not know of anyone who would travel on the train To be dropped off in the outskirts of Bristol centre. The bus takes 30 minutes or so And the New traffic lights at the motorway junction work great. It is Not worth Spending 40million On a new track and some old trains from somewhere for a few TainSpotters and railway enthusiasts when w

I would like to express comment in relation to the re-opening of the Portishead railway line and options for the location of Portishead railway station. Section 1 of the evidence paper talks about the Portishead toBristolcorridor (A369) suffering congestion as it crosses junction 19 of the M5. I would have agreed with this statement before traffic lights were installed at this junction but since then there has been very little traffic congestion and my journey time from Portishead to Bristol va

Oh, (puts on Colombo mac) just one more thing..... The existence of just three options - all involving a station - suggests that this is a done deal. "You are going to have a station and we are simply asking you where you want it." This seems to me like Alex Salmond asking the Scots "Do you want independence on a Tuesday, a Wednesday or a Thursday?" When the adult version of this consultation paper comes out, with evidence of hard thinking, market research, plausible costs and other niceties

I would like to voice my concerns over your proposals for sites for the rail line and the railine in general. The railline will connect portishead only to temple meads and not to central bristol so have you actually considered who will actually use the line? I would not catch the train to go shopping as it is just not central. Have any surveys been considered using actual prices for fayres to see who will actually use the service? I understand that the line will be loss making and if so what o

We are writing to register our objection to the proposed siting of the Portishead railway station at Option 2 referred to in your Evidence Paper of February 2013. As far as we concerned the preferred location for the Portishead railway station is at the originally proposed site (Option 1) or if it is felt that more car parking is required then at Option 3. We understand that Option 2 and 3 have been added as Option 1 would be too costly now that level crossings cannot be used and a road bridge

I would like to communicate my views on the options for portishead railway station. The national planning policy framework outlines the purpose of green belt protection. To check the unrestricted sprawl of large built up areas To assist in safeguarding the countryside from encroachment To assist in urban regeneration by encouraging the recycling of urban / derelict land. Option 3 is in direct contravention of these objectives. Why are you considering using green belt land when a perfectly

The various arguments have been well documented in previous contributions, sometimes brilliantly (stand up Abby and take a bow). I merely offer some thoughts. The consultation paper lacks, some might say disingenuously, vital information. How can we punters make a reasoned judgement not knowing: the probable frequency and timing of trains; (someone must know) the probable cost of train fares; (someone must know) the probable cost to users of designated car parks; (someone must know) whether

We recognise the benefit of having a railway station in Portishead will help to ease traffic congestion. However, we are strongly opposed to having a railway station on the Sheepway because this will create traffic congestion and pollution onto what is at present a quiet country road. It is also more green belt land being taken away from many people in Portishead who currently enjoy the nature in this area. PLEASE LISTEN TO US

Recent events have proven why unmanned automated level crossings are not a suitable option for the rail line to cross Quays Avenue. I realise this is a matter of policy for Network Rail these days and fully support it, especially as the road crossing is a school route which children walk along. I have read comments which call for the council to urge Network Rail to reconsider this for Quays Avenue, but in my mind there is no question that children would climb the barrier to 'beat the train' - es

NO TO OPTION 3 After serious consideration and reflection, I am compelled to comment about the proposed railway line coming into Portishead, specifically the proposed sighting of the Station in Moor Farm - Option 3. I feel that Option 3 would not benefit the people of Portishead for the following reasons: 1. It is not in the centre of the town, resulting in travellers having to walk, get public transport or drive in an already congested road. 2. The Village Quarter and Vale estates will beco
