Bus cuts in Odd Down


The council has made many cuts: libraries, art budget and the bus budget. This has affected the Kingsway and Odd Down buses to Ralph Allen school. A commercial service has been put into place, but this isn't adequate for the number of children that want to use the service.
We have been support local residents that have been asking the council why this had to happen, it must be better than adding to current school run issues that exist on Bath's roads. Children are potentially going to get stuck at school or not get to school. With all the heavy bags now carried by school children walking is not an option.
Residents in the Banwell Road area no longer have a bus, they must either use the Wellsway or the park and ride bus

We are calling on the council to re-instate the service, and if they have to make cuts to have a meaningful consultation about it rather the usual just do it and hope for the best.

Pot Holes


Local Lib Dems are concerned about the slow pace of rectifying the numerous pot holes across Odd Down and Kingsway. Please post pictures of the pot holes that concern you to our email address. We are going to make representation to Tory controlled council about these pot holes across our ward to get a higher priority on getting this resolved. 
Cllr. Steve Hedges said “for those of us who have to drive this pot holes are damaging our cars and bikes. We are making it a priority to report this pot holes to the council to get action to get them fixed.” We want the council to stop wasting money on pooly thought out big schemes and focus on the little things which would make a big difference to residents.”
Currently we are aware on pot holes in Odd Down and Kingsway. Please let us know where the ones which are causing you problems are.

Extra Housing at Sulis Meadows submitted

Planning Applications Reference:17/02588/EFUL

Erection of 173 residential units, open space, allotments, green infrastructure, landscaping and associated works including provision of vehicular access from Combe Hay Lane.

This is an indicative plan, below, from the web site showing the phasing of the site. There are over a hundred files on the web site detailing the planning. There is supposed to be a master plan which is not obvious.  

As councillors we reluctantly supported the council's planning policy which was for around 300 houses.  There are so many documents we hope the council will allow long enough period of time to consider what is happening and net effect on existing residents. We need to understand how travelling around will occur with so much extra traffic

Ralph Allen School Bus - being removed

We have been contacted by a number of concerned parents that the council is cutting the subsidised bus to Ralph Allen School from the Southdown area that goes through the Odd Down area. This leaves the 20A 20C as the main bus, with massively reduced capacity. How does this stop Bath Stalling ?

Seem a silly thing to do at the same time you are closing Culverhay (BCA) and sending pupil all around the city.

Another bad idea by this council.

Waste Bin - Wellsway

We have had complaints about the amount of litter around the bus stop on the Wellsway opposite on the Beeches on the Wellsway, we have asked the council to look and see if it is possible to consider a waste bin.
