We all know that Junction 19 cannot take any more traffic.Why then do we keep granting planning permission for new houses all around Portishead? The major developers have to give some money to various infrastructure projects (called 106 money).

After all, it is all about money, so let's do something to get it.Tony Mosely - Hillcrest Road, Portishead
