Make sure your opinion is registered.

Supporters who have signed the online version of the Bristol Is Not Trash petition are being asked to check to make sure they have verified their email addresses.

You will have been sent an email (which may be in your junk box) which asks you to confirm your email address for verification.

Please can you make sure you have done this, to make sure your opinion is registered.

If you have not yet done so there is still time to sign the petition. It currently has around 11,500 signatures, and we would like to increase this figure further.

The petition was set up by MP Charlotte Leslie in response to the TRASH group who have lodged a Judicial Review which questions the validity of the planning permission granted to J Sainsbury’s on the current Memorial Stadium site.

The online version of the petition states: "We, the under-signed, are dismayed at the 'TRASH' group's actions in delaying and obstructing the building of a supermarket at the former Bristol Rovers site, which crucially prevents Bristol Rovers, and moreover the whole city, from having a new stadium.

"We express concern that the group have set up a company limited by guarantee, with the intent of going bankrupt, in order to avoid legal fees; express deep concern that the public purse will be paying much of this cost; state that the TRASH group is not representative of us, and call on the TRASH group to cease the obstruction of achieving the stadium the city so badly needs."
