BPC Response to NSC 17 Oct 19

"Bleadon Parish Council Coronation Hall, Coronation Road Bleadon BS24 0PG (Objects) Comment submitted date: Thu 17 Oct 2019 Comments for and on behalf of Bleadon Parish Council.

The proposal effectively joins the Parish of Bleadon to Weston-Super-Mare No Strategic Gap between Weston and Bleadon No proposal to widen road. Proposed access and increased traffic perceived to be dangerous to Horse riders, cyclists, runners and walkers. Adverse impact on Flora/Bats/Birds of prey. Proposal visible from A370 many parts of Bleadon. Proposal larger than any previous single development in Bleadon."

There’s enough development going on in WsM without devastating the countryside too. Pure greed. 😡
