South Gloucestershire Council today began its consultation on the Policies, Sites, and Places document (http://www.southglos.gov.uk/PSPpublication).
Cllr Claire Young, Liberal Democrat lead member on Environment & Communities said:
"It’s disappointing that there are open spaces that have not been protected in this document because of objections by South Gloucestershire Council itself as the landowner. If these spaces have been needed before, they're even more needed now when more houses have brought more people needing open spaces. I welcome the fact that we've banked the progress we could, and the policies that are so important when making development control decisions. Local residents need to use the consultation to make it clear to the council that their valued green spaces deserve protection, now and into the future."
