The article regarding the Nailsea Football Club winning the planning appeal to site three temporary buildings at The Grove needs comment to inform readers.The proposed buildings are temporary, utilitarian changing units together with a disabled toilet and pay kiosk.Their height is about three metres, the fence surrounding the site is 1.8 metres. The plan is to set them 1.2 metres into the ground so that they would hardly be seen.This means that a hole about two thirds the size of Backwell Swimming Pool will have to be dug.The plans show the size of the 1.2 metre deep hole as 18.75 metres by 13.3 metres at the top (16 metres by 10.5 metres at the bottom).One of the conditions of the planning appeal decision is that the buildings shall be removed and the land restored to its former condition, on or before, 21 April, 2011.Will the 250 cubic metres of excavated soil be kept on site for its eventual replacement - and if so, where? (It has been suggested that this would be placed round the north and east boundaries as a bund or embankment with a low fence put on top - but this was before the 1.8 metre fence was erected.) And can the ground be restored to its former condition, when that is done within the stipulated five years time period, satisfactorily?The town council is owner of the land and will have to give any approval for such works to be done.Residents may wish to make comment to guide town councillors in their decision - should the town council, as landlords of the site and as they seek to fulfil the responsibility of care for town council property, give consent or not?The Rev Brian M Cave - Westway, Nailsea
