NA2-North-West Nailsea The site is currently within Flood Zone 1, however, a more detailed flood risk mapping exercise of the Parish Brook watercourse would need to be undertaken to determine if there is a floodplain from this watercourse that would impact on the principle and master planning of any new development. In addition, surface water drainage and any impact to the receiving watercourse (Parish brook a non main watercourse) will need to be considered as part of any detailed site specifi

Proposed development Causeway View Access and Egress The roads in and out of Nailsea are inadequate for the existing population. There are bottlenecks at Moorend Spout, Wraxall Village and Backwell Railway Bridge. The commuting time to Bristol is already too long. Adding another 500 cars would be madness. The proposed site borders Watery Lane, an old road that the council have long tried to dissuade motorists from using due to its poor state of repair. Having 450 houses beside it can only inc

We strongly object to any proposed major development of this site, for the following reasons: 1) Environment - the area is a haven for wildlife, including bats, hares, badgers and egrets. The proposed site borders a SSSI with waterways that contain rare aquatic invertebrates, including the Great Silver Water Beetle. The waterways are interlinked so it is very possible that the same creatures inhabit the ditches and rhynes adjacent to the site. 2) Flooding - although the land is not designated

National Grid proposals in the area The proposed mixed use allocation at North West Nailsea lies in close proximity to the proposed new 400kV line from Bridgwater to Seabank. (please refer to drawing ref. G1979.1053c which is enclosed with this letter). The site allocation has the potential to be affected by the associated works required on the Western Power Distribution (WPD) network and this should be reflected in the wording of the policy. At present the site at North West Nailsea is crosse

I object to the development of land North West of Nailsea as the Parish Brook which is at the boundary of the land runs into Nailsea Moor where the water courses are rich in wildlife and listed as SSSI's. It is recognised that otters are regularly present on Parish Brook, and signs of activity have been seen along the length bounding the area proposed for development. There are already problems with water quality in Nailsea Moor and great effort is being made to improve it. I am concerned that p

Policy NA2: North-West Nailsea For reasons set out above in relation to Policy DM34, the reference to North-West Nailsea in Policy NA2 should be deleted and replaced with reference to land at South West Nailsea. The proposals map should be amended accordingly. The site at Youngwood Lane to the south-west of the town is a more sustainable and deliverable opportunity, and should therefore be afforded priority. Only in the event of an additional allocation being necessary at Nailsea during the

I am very much against the plans for building on the land behind Godwin Drive and Causeway View to pound lane for these reasons, The land you are looking to build has a major problem with flooding and getting water logged to the point where even a combine harvester got stuck and had to be towed out last year, Me and my wife walk our dog on the land daily and as soon as there is any significant rain fall the land seems to flood. I believe the local football club also had a problem as they could

I have 3 major concerns with a planned proposal of 450 dwellings on this site. Firstly road infrastructure remains the same as when it was a small village. Roads are already heavily congested, with bottle neck points where Buses and HGVs cannot pass. The planned development would clearly impact and worsen what is already poor. Improved road infrastructure must be considered before any new development is considered. Secondly the designated area could almost be considered a floodplain. Surface

One of the reasons being given for needing more houses in Nailsea is to fill empty school places. Government legislation allows children to attend schools other than in their domicile town and many parents choose to send their children, particularly from the age of eleven to Backwell and some to Worle. I am given to understand that this applies particularly to children leaving St. Francis Roman Catholic School. Many who go on to University do not return to their home towns (such as Nailsea) whe
