Headlines September 2015

  • B&NES are again proposing a Park & Ride in or near Bathampton despite lack of evidence that it is needed or that it would achieve its stated aims. Various protest activities are on-going aimed at local and parliamentary politicians – see Notices.
  • The proposed layout of the twenty five new houses (and a bat shed) at the end of Tyning Lane is now on the B&NES planning website; the Jewsons Yard site has been cleared.
  •  An application has been made for the erection of four dwellings on the field surrounded by leylandii off Miller Walk.
