Somerdale View

We have been told by the council that Somerdale View is to have a sign installed that shows it is a cul-de-sac

Government view on housing numbers - wrong wrong wrong

There was a petition on the number 10 Downing Street web to stop the extra housing, that has potential to destroy our countryside.

If you want to see a picture of the destruction to the south of Bristol, which in Bath and North East Somerset.

In rejecting the petition the government makes many valid points, about the the amount of housing required, we know we need a lot more housing in Bath, there is a big waiting list for council housing, but they make such stupid and wrong statements it is laughable. A good example is:

"There is a significant gap between supply and rising demand for new homes For decades, the housing market failed to keep up with our ageing and growing population. This has led to significant problems of affordability, particularly for those seeking to buy their first home."

We can't see in Bath how anybody is going to buy their first home, unless there is a radical change in government policy. This is one of the many reasons why we oppose the housebuilding.

Next PACT Meeting

This will be 13th October 2009 St Philips School 7pm

RSS - postponed no more houses for now

It appears that due to a challenge in the courts, the number of houses to be built around Bath and the total to be built in Bath and North East Somerset will not be known for a while.

Roundabout at Clarks(Pulteney View)

We have asked the council about the roundabout at Clark's, apparently a small part is adopted. It is the remains from the previous land that was adopted, but the majority is not adopted.

We will have to wait until the whole estate is adopted for the grass to be cut

Clark (Pulteney View) adoption

We have received the following email from Persimmon
Having verified with our construction department we can advise that
Persimmon have completed all the estate roads, play area and public open
space on the Pultney View development in readiness to be handed over to
the council for maintenance.

We are unable to complete the main spine road on the development until
such time as the commercial areas have been completed. These are under
contract to a.n.other builder.

Once the commercial areas are complete Persimmon will complete the spine
road in order to handover to the council for maintenance.

Ambleside Road sign wrong ?


The sign at the junction of Ambleside Road and Georgian View looks like it is missing a vital word ! "Road"

Roads in Kingsway Urgent action required


We have been for a while complaining about the roads in Kingsway. Even though some work has been done, there are still many potholes. We feel it would be much cheaper to get the whole are re-surfaced.
