Your Council

Welcome to the Bathampton Parish Council website

This site is intended to provide easy access to information about the activities of the Bathampton Parish Council and their representation of the people of Bathampton.

Park and Ride statement

There have been several community meetings about the proposed P&R and the Parish Councillors who attended made every effort to discover what the views of the parish were. To date we have not had a single person who was in favour, and accordingly we have as a council opposed the plans at every opportunity. We have worked closely with Batheaston and Bathford PCs and with the ‘Bathampton Meadows Alliance’ and ‘Save Bathampton Meadows’ protest groups.

BANES have now formally approved the proposals and identified their preferred site(s) either side of Mill Lane; the next step will be a planning application, which we currently intend to oppose. To ensure that our response is accurate, we would like to know what parishioners think, particularly if you are in favour.
