Portishead Branch Line - MetroWest Phase 1

Received 26 February 2020
From Mary Donaldson


I support the re-opening of the railway line from Portishead to Bristol. I am concerned that the planning has not taken into consideration the negative impact on wildlife, particularly toads, which the plans for concreting over 22 acres of Lodway Farm Fields would entail. This is a very important site for toad migration.
