Why is wealthy Bristol University intent on destroying the green belt around Long Ashton village, asks one Bristol Post reader.
HAVE planners really considered the effects of building on the green belt in the valley at Long Ashton? Where will these new residents work? Bristol? How do they reach Bristol on existing roads which are already absolutely saturated, especially when most families now own two cars at least. Where will the children go to school when local schools are already oversubscribed?
Local services are unable to cope as it is, there are few shops, the local surgery is too small and where does water drain to when a good proportion of the land which is currently farmed, is built on? At present the small brook just about copes but future flooding? Why not build on existing brown sites, instead of good farm land. The last site sold to developers in the village was sold by Bristol University and even then all services were already over stretched . Why does the wealthy Bristol University who own the land have such influence in the destruction of a beautiful and valuable green belt other than huge profits from large developers. Too many brown sites are being ignored at the cost of green belt. and the ruination of yet another village.
