We are opposed to the proposed development on land south of Snails Lane, as we believe it is in the wrong place and will irrevocably harm wildlife.
The Snails Lane site is located in the heart of the Avon Valley, an area that is internationally-protected for its importance for wildlife. It provides functional supporting habitat that has been used by breeding and feeding bird populations.
This use demonstrates that it has the potential to become a wildlife haven of its own right; if it were restored, it could help support protected and declining species, such as little ringed plover and lapwing. Should this site be built upon, that opportunity will be lost forever.
