|FOSBR map showing possible new stations|
FOSBR, the Friends of Suburban Bristol Railways, is a group that campaigns for rail improvements. They have been consulting local people and have put forward a rail map showing possible new stations, including Coalpit Heath and Winterbourne. They are proposing to submit the map as their comment on the draft Joint Transport Plan.
Do you see Coalpit Heath or Winterbourne having the potential for a new station? If one of them does, our area could be one with potential for “transport-focused development”. That’s one of the scenarios suggested in the Joint Spatial Plan consultation to identify land for an additional 29,000 homes in the next 30 years.
It’s important you have your say. FOSBR have a survey to give them your views. You can also attend their AGM on Friday 29th January 6pm-9.30pm at Halo Café, 141 Gloucester Road.
