St Gregory's Six Form - new application

We have received this about St. Gregory's

St Gregory’s re-submits plans for sixth form development

Capital allocation confirmed by B&NES Council

St. Gregory’s Catholic College in Odd Down has just announced that it has re-submitted its application for outline planning permission for a sixth form development on a site next to the school. Headteacher Raymond Friel said, ‘the original plans needed more technical work on key aspects such as ecology, transport and planning policy justification. We commissioned further reports and now feel that the scheme is very well thought through and hopefully will answer any remaining questions the local planning authority may have.’

B&NES Planning Officers will now consult on the submission before a final decision is made, probably around May of this year. St Gregory’s plans can be viewed on the Council’s Public Access System (ref. No. 11/00468/OUT) or on the school’s website (’ under Sixth Form Planning Application.

Community Nuttery

I have been out today planting Walnuts and other nut trees in Widcombe as part of Transition Bath

As they say on the web site

Transition Bath is a local environmental organisation whose aim is to build a sustainable future by harnessing the power of community in the face of declining natural resources and increasing fuel and food costs. We support moving to a low carbon, local economy and building positive, self reliant communities.

It would be nice to look for a similar site in Odd Down

Corston View allotments

Progress is being made, we have received this information

"These have now been marked out and the water is now installed, all I am waiting for is our admin team to allocate them to tenants on the waiting list, so I will chase them up and hopefully letters will be out next week."
