There is a meeting on Tuesday 1 March at Culverhay from 7-9pm to inform and answer questions on the proposal for a free school to replace Culverhay. It is also a means of gauging interest in the concept as the current level of support will be evidence backing the proposal when it goes to the DfE.
The Conservative Cabinet have announced the Closure of Culverhay, the wrong decision for Bath and the Community it serves.
The Culverhay closure decision has been listed in this weeks weekly list as having been taken.
Please see here for the decision register:
NB: Call-in deadline date: 04/03/2011

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 (www.st-gregory’s.bathnes.sch.uk) under Sixth Form Planning Application.

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
"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."
