We’ve been asked to publicise the following.  There are now only a few days left to respond:

Two of the three proposals will do irreparable damage to the setting of the suspension bridge, by putting a four-lane bridge across the Avon.  The other is flawed in other ways.  As summarised by Dr Suzanne Audrey:

The three ‘chosen’ options all have serious implications including: environmental harm to the river and riverbank, community severance, harm to historic assets and iconic views of Brunel’s Suspension Bridge, changing the cycle route from a rural to a heavily-trafficked area, increased heavy traffic (a new 4-lane road) alongside the Nova Scotia and Pump House pubs, and increased air pollution. Local residents and businesses (including Riverside Garden Centre) are also fearful about the future of their homes and premises. Dr Suzanne Audrey

There is also a petition to get the council to release other options:
