Sponsored Roundabouts

Odd Down Liberal Democrat Councillors Nigel Roberts and Steve Hedges are welcoming plans to improve two roundabouts in the Odd Down area. The roundabouts will be planted with displays of shrubs and flowering plants which are likely to be sponsored by local companies. Schemes such as this are common across the country.

Planning applications have been submitted to the Council for the planting schemes and sponsorship advertisement signs.

Cllr Nigel Roberts said:

"These schemes are great news – the roundabouts in Bath, especially in Odd Down, have been neglected for far too long. Often they are just overgrown and untidy. Schemes like this are a good example of how the Council can work in partnership with the business community.”

Cllr Steve Hedges added:

“Seeing these roundabouts being planted up and looked after will give a real boost to Odd Down – we really need the addition of a bit of colour to the neighbourhood!”
