Portishead Branch Line - MetroWest Phase 1

Received 11 February 2020
From Pill & Easton-in-Gordano Parish Council


Concerns about the impact of the MetroWest DCO Scheme on the residents of Pill & Easton-in-Gordano Parish, the local environment and its wildlife, during both the construction and operational phases of the Project. Primarily, but not exclusively, these will centre around mitigations for nuisances, such as noise, pollution, traffic congestion etc. and the potential loss of habitat and species to the development. At present my biggest concern is the unfeasibly short time that has been made available for review of the 20,000 plus pages contained in the DCO Scheme Plan.
