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.


Justification:

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.
