How do you feel about building on Bristol's green spaces? Do you think they are essential to our health and wellbeing, and to mitigate flooding and climate change?

Hedgerows are the unsung heroes of the countryside in reducing carbon. We’re supporting @CPRE in calling on the government to set a target to increase the hedgerow network by 40% by 2050. Share your support by signing the petition: http://ow.ly/tFP450FAUEx
We've lost half our hedgerows since 1945, intensifying nature's decline and hindering the fight against climate change.
But we can turn this around.
Tell the government to start planting and restoring 1000s of miles of hedgerows every year #40by50 >> https://takeaction.cpre.org.uk/page/85848/petition/1?ea.tracking.id=twitter
Plans have been submitted to build more than 500 homes on green belt land in Ashton Vale, South Bristol (pics below).
