Keep Green Urban Spaces Safe From Sudden 'Brownfield' Labelling

We the undersigned ask that Council Officers should cease describing any sites in the city as “brownfield,” unless: a. The entire site clearly complies with the National Planning Policy Framework definition of previously developed land, AND, b. It is listed on the Council Register of Brownfield Sites.


The Environment Agency has placed much of the Harbourside into the highest flood risk zone, with a "significant and unacceptable risk to life" for residents and users. Further, the Bristol City Council recently passed a cross-party motion to protect all green spaces from destructive development.
