Highways & Canal

We liaise with B&NES and the Highways Agency (responsible for A36) to ensure that local roads are well maintained. We regularly report pot holes, damage to speed humps, and submit requests for the repainting of road lines and speed signs, in an attempt to create a safer village for traffic and pedestrians.

We have responsibility for monitoring footpaths within the parish, and liaise with B&NES on maintenance and improvement matters.

We liaise with B&NES on their winter maintenance plans. It is their responsibility to grit roads, and to provide and fill grit bins during bad weather. We assess whether their plans are adequate, whether they were able to successfully implement them, and feed back accordingly.

We also liaise with the Canal and River Trust to represent local views on the canal.
