Bus services - subsidised by the council

We have been notified by the council that it is looking at the bus services it subsidises. - see below - for us there are two main buses - please let us know.

714 Weston - Bath Centre - Odd Down Daily: 2 late evening journeys from Weston and 3 late evening journeys from Odd Down
717 Weston - Bath Centre - Kingsway Mon-Sat: 5 journeys in each direction during the evening

In March 2009 a number of contracts for bus services supported by Bath and North East Somerset are due to expire. In advance of inviting tenders for replacement services, we are therefore inviting the views of Councillors, Parish and Town councils, operators, and other stakeholders affected by these services, before the contract specifications are finalised.

We need to submit any comments, proposals, or suggestions not later than the 19th September 2008, so that these can be incorporated into the contract specifications.

As a result of all these consultations the detail of the contracts to be let may differ from the tenders in operation at present. It is anticipated that formal invitations to tender will be sent out by the 3rd October, with contract awarded notifications in the first week of January 2009. Contracts will be let for periods of up to 5 years.

Council Consulation on planning matters

The Government has published a national list of mandatory information that must be submitted with every planning application.

In addition to the national list, Government has also published a list of additional requirements which local planning authorities are encouraged to adopt to suit their individual circumstances. Once consulted upon and formally adopted, this document will be used in order to determine whether a submitted application is valid.

Bath & North East Somerset Council’s draft local list is set out in this document for consultation purposes. Once the consultation responses have been collated and taken into account, the final local list will be formally adopted by the Council and used for the validation of planning applications.

Regional BMX meeting

At the Tumps at Odd Down there is to be an BMX Regional Event that is planned for the 28th September.

The occasion will provide the council with an opportunity to showcase and promote the track locally as well as in the region as one of the regions most popular BMX tracks of its size. The event follows soon after the Olympic Games where BMX racing is included or the first time.

It will attract around 200 riders from the regions BMX clubs as well as spectators. The event is free and run by and for volunteers under British Cycling (the governing body for cycle-sport in the uk). The track will be in use from 09.30 to 4.30 with commencing soon after 08.00.
