Split decision for me. The two meadows(?) are fields adjoining the main road, A388, on one one side and playing fields on the other. A further field lies between the development and the river. Houses and other development is on the opposite, western, side of the A388 and the fields for potential development are opposite existing housing in Britford Lane on the south side.

As someone who fished the Longford Estate for some years (and had my subscriptions increased by £300 this year by the enthusiastic Land Agent - why I left this year) I know the real delight of the true water meadows slightly farther downstream. Shown in a superb DVD by a well know centrepin maker!

The LAA section at Britford currently holds some of the best roach fishing on the Avon - nearest to a lot of human activity - which cormorants avoid.

Signed and supported. Saving even one small green space can only be a good thing regardless of any financial or political ramifications.

Signed without reservations. Bloody ridiculous idea, we don't need more houses...... we need less people!

I've signed, I'll probably never visit this place, but I know of similar places which could be destroyed. If the land in question was ripe for building the houses would already be there. I wish those wanting to stop the development well and hope they succeed.

Signed, there is way to much of this kind of development going un-checked.

I would point out that it is partly the Longford Estate pushing for this! Chris Yates & Bob James - Passion for Angling country!

All changed with a new Land Agent!!

Sorry Firebird, but the last thing we need in the south east is more houses, as I said what we really need is less people......
