Bathampton Meadows transfer to the National Trust

Bathampton Parish Council is delighted that the Council has transferred its landholding in the Meadows to the National Trust. We thank everyone who participated in the campaign to stop the Park and Ride which has now resulted in this amazing outcome and which will have wide-ranging benefits.

As well as being a beautiful local amenity for Bathampton, the Meadows alongside the River Avon to the East of the City of Bath form an important part of the setting of the World Heritage Site. They are highly visible and act as a green wedge alongside the river as it enters the City.

We support the Trust’s Business Plan & Vision for the Meadows and look forward to working with them, with BANES and WECA, and with all local community groups to create an enhanced “green corridor” connecting the City to the countryside with a network of walking and cycling routes which will provide substantial environmental, social and economic benefits.

Get ready for Bath’s Clean Air Zone

Bath’s clean air zone will start from midnight on Monday 15 March to urgently improve air quality in the city. Most higher emission vehicles – except private cars and motorbikes – will be charged to drive in the city centre.

A higher emission vehicle is a Pre Euro 6/VI diesel vehicle (Euro 1 to 5/V or earlier) or Pre Euro 4 petrol vehicle (Euro 1 to 3 or earlier).

You can check whether your vehicle will be charged using your vehicle registration number using GOV.UK’s vehicle checker at www.gov.uk/check-clean-air-zone-charge

If charges apply, please refer to Bath & North East Somerset’s website for a list of local exemptions and whether you might be eligible for financial support to upgrade or replace a non-compliant vehicle or fleet of vehicles.

If charges apply and you drive in the zone from midnight on Monday 15 March, please remember to pay within 7 days at www.gov.uk/cleanairzone, or you could receive a penalty charge notice. From launch, payment can be made 6 days in advance, on the day you drive in the zone, or in the following 6 days.

While private cars are not charged in Bath’s zone, the Council is asking everyone to consider whether they need to use their vehicle, especially for short trips where walking, cycling or taking public transport is possible. We all have a part to play in improving air quality.
