From William Ovel


Concerns relating to disruption caused to Pill & Easton-in-Gordano residents by DCO Scheme. These include, but are not limited to: 1. Location of Construction Compound at Lodway Farm with attendant noise, lighting and traffic nuisances. Work should be relocated to spare land under M5 Avonmouth Bridge 2. HGV traffic through Pill, Easton-in-Gordano and Ham Green - narrow streets leading to road safety concerns for pedestrians & cyclists, conflict with bus services, congestion, damage from vibration, noise etc. 3. Cycle Route Diversions. 4. Impact on local wildlife at Lodway Farm Pond and ponds at N. Somerset Wildlife Site beside M5 Avonmouth Bridge. 5. Access road through Victoria Park - potential dangers posed by vehicles to park users 6. Marsh Lane Traffic. 7. Primary method for trans-shipping waste and construction materials should be by train.
