Gold Response!
It would be ideal if you could fully outline your objection as this would provide more weight to our argument. To assist you you can find an overview of our main concerns on our Issues page. If you still have a response you have written from a previous consultation round you could use this.

Silver Response
Any comment from you, no matter how long would be great. The more you write in your own words the more powerful your response will be. Rather than commenting on all the issues you may just comment on an issue closest to your heart e.g. roads, environment, facilities etc. It doesn’t need to be long, just representative of your views.

Bronze Response
Alternatively if you are short of time just insert ‘I support the position of BaSRAG’ and you can attach the response we have put together at the end of the process. Any response is better than no response at all!

  2. This is a lovely area, there is not enough facilities for all this houses, schools primary and secondary. Doctors, hospitals dentists. The roads aren’t good enough for all this people and cars. The amount of fields and wildlife that will be affected and destroyed.

  3. I have lived in Berkeley 26yrs and without a doubt, this ridiculous development will have nothing but a negative effect on the whole area. I am disturbed by the fact that our great Councils can think this would benefit anyone, except the builders if course, but I suppose you only need to look at the awful development they have recently allowed on the East of Berkeley….

    Anyway, I will be objecting on all the obvious grounds – transport and road infrastructure, green field destruction, ecology, sustainability, amenities etc, and hope that the independent planning inspector can see that this development would be a travesty and completely destroy, what is and has been an area of natural beauty for 100’s of years.

    Everyone in the area should be bombarding the inspector with their views, as we did as a residents group many years ago ref a small proposed development on the Berkeley primary school field- and had it rejected!!! This is no different, just on an enormous, devastating scale.

    Great work and commendations to the team that are pulling this together!
