CRAG was out in force at The Precinct on Saturday, demonstrating against the proposed new housing estate behind Park and Mulberry roads. Leaflets were distributed to shoppers explaining why the 90 house estate on Park Farm field is socially and environmentally a bad idea. Resident Amie Price-Bates summed up the feelings of many: “The importance of green space, both socially and mentally has become clear since the pandemic.”
CRAG believes the scheme is unsustainable because of the distance from surgeries, schools and public transport links which will encourage greater car use. Amie stressed the need to get objections registered by April 7. Go to North Somerset Council’s website, search for planning applications and enter the reference 22/P/0459/OUT.
