WHAT IS THE GREENBELT?
It includes Courthouse Farm and land either side of the A369 that provides the last buffer between Royal Portbury Dock and the two parishes of Easton-in-Gordano and Portbury.
WHAT IS THE LOCAL PLAN?
A draft version of the Replacement Local Plan (RLP) was the subject of an Inquiry in Public in August 2005. The version of the plan that was considered at that Inquiry proposed both the retention of the Courthouse Farm and adjoining land in the established Green Belt, and the redesignation of the land at Shipway Farm into the Green Belt, the latter being a matter that had been presaged by the previous Avon County Structure Plan, with only the precise boundaries being a matter for the RLP
