Portishead Branch Line - MetroWest Phase 1

Received 26 February 2020
From Noel Ayling


I object to the plan that will create a storage facility during the construction of the railway in the area behind Lodway Farm. Access is planned to be via the residential streets ( Redacted ) neither of which are suitable for the heavy traffic involved. The alternative access is to be gained from Marsh Lane which is far more suitable. There are also wildlife and environmental concerns about the area behind Lodway Farm and these must be thoroughly examined and suitable mitigation put in place to minimise the damage to wildlife.
