We would like this application to come to committee if recommended for approval. Currently there is huge overspill car parking from the existing office blocks. We are concerned that this development has not provided enough parking for the operation of the home, staff and visitors. There should be a contribution towards the bus services such as the 42 or 20a/C both being council subsidised services, and their future is not guaranteed. Secondly this is a prominent hill side the office block landscaping has not been successful in hiding the building from the surrounding valley. We are not convinced that this has been successfully shown within these plans
It is disappointing the council is carrying out a yet another consultation with regard to building on the Southstoke plateau. This time the council is designating the overall plan for 300 houses. This process was supposed to take a year and involve the community, now it is to be done in two weeks without any say from anyone. By rushing such an important plan, it is a wonder how many mistakes will be made, and how many residents lives will be ruined unnecessarily.
Let's get something clear from the beginning there is no argument over the need for housing, there is a need for the 12,700 houses that the plan allows for over the next 15 years. However, it seems wrong to us that the reason this is being rushed is due to green fields that are easy to build upon. What is worse is there is an alternative, The MOD sites will not be developed and western riverside also will not have its extra phases. The density of housing on these sites are due to be 35 per hectare, Sulis Meadows next to the Southstoke plateau is 45, Oldfield Park is 90 and the old historic part of Bath is 120 per hectare. A small increase in density on the empty brownfield sites of only 10% would mean that there is no need for development on the green fields at Southstoke or Weston. Overall, there are few winners in this plan, maybe a few house builders if they decide to build. There are already building permissions for 500 houses in B&NES that have not been started, but to us it seems to be that the builders win, and everyone else loses.

The council can confirm that is their intention to install a bus shelter at terminus on Ambleside Road, however at the moment they are having difficulties in coming up with an engineering design to allow raised bus kerbs to be installed at this stop as well as shelter due to the narrow road width and small layby.
Monday 22 July 3.30 pm to 6 pm at the Odd Down Community Centre, Odins Road, Bath This consultation will take the form of a drop-in session, whereby residents can come into the Centre, view the plans and discuss with council officers any issues or concerns they may have.
The formal planning event will take place later. This is the opportunity to see the plans before they are submitted.
We are asking this question at the Council's cabinet meeting
Coach parking at Odd Down playing fields has cause a number of issues for those that live locally with traffic not following the correct routes through narrow streets, with the new cycle facility and potentially a 4G pitch, please could there be an assurance that the car park will not be used for parking this year
Black plastics - The council have never accepted these through the green box, but what appears to have been happening is that some of the crews have been taking it when it has mistakenly been put out, but it has been disposed of as contamination further down the line.
The council have been working with the crews to stop them taking it in the first place, so some residents are thinking that we have changed our service - we haven't, we don't have a market for black plastics. It can't be recycled.
It constitutes a contaminant when it gets to the reprocesses and gets rejected there.
We have reported the road along Frome Road outside of the United Reform Church, pedestrians along the road are getting wet from all of the pot holes. There are a couple of large pot holes causing the problem that need to be filled in.
