I wish to present a petition on behalf of 450 people in the town of Watchet.

The petition declares:

There are serious concerns about the planned housing development on the Severn terrace field—namely that the housing density is too high and that it is out of keeping with the character of local buildings. It would reduce local parking space and increase the danger to local traffic, pedestrians and especially children.

The petitioners therefore request that the House of Commons urge the Office of the Deputy Prime Minister to ask the district council to seek amendments to the current plans for the Severn terrace field housing development.

To lie upon the Table.
