Pressure for development in South Bristol is intense - how often will it be appropriate??

Good on John Button, Elmtree Residents Association and all who are supporting them in their campaign to protect open, green space in Whitchurch ('Hundreds Back Town Green Bid', Bristol Evening Post, 6 May 2008). There's no doubt that as Bristol City Council and their developer friends scrutinise South Bristol's parks and green spaces locals will need to get involved and make their voices heard if the true value of such land to the quality of our lives is to be fully respected. After all Bristol City Council has already taken the decision to flog off 90 acres, establishing the principle of flogging off green space without specifying which areas - there is intense pressure for development but how often will it be appropriate??
