The Cambo oil field will produce climate pollution equal to 18 coal-fired power plants running for a year. Humanity is on code red and the government can’t allow this project to go ahead if we are to halt climate destruction.

Here are reasons you might like to use in your correspondence:
That development at Viney’s Farm would be environmentally unsustainable, would damage biodiversity on the site (particularly birds, and the River Avon), and would impact local services;
That you hope that the council will commit to doing very thorough environmental, archaeological, and heritage studies of the sites before making any decisions;
And ask whether such a large site could be put in the plan at this stage, or would it mean that the entire plan would have to be delayed a year, or potentially be legally unsound because of lack of public consultation.
