Park & Ride latest…..

Scrutiny Panel Day:

On Thursday 23 February the B&NES Policy Development and Scrutiny Panel for Communities, Transport and Environment are holding a review day to consider the recent decision on P & R sites made by Cabinet.  The decision is being ‘called-in’ by 13 councillors who are concerned regarding:

  • how residents were engaged during the consultation process
  • Insufficient consideration of the conclusions from the Policy Development & Scrutiny Inquiry day into alternative integrated transport solutions
  • Too much weight  was placed on the report from the Local Development Framework Recommendations
  • The Cabinet report was misleading, incomplete and inaccurate

BPT has signed up to speak at the panel hearing and we will post an update here when we have one.

 

Historic England response to Cabinet decision……

Historic England considers that the Cabinet report  on P & R underplays the importance of the World Heritage Site.  You can read their letter to B&NES here: Historic England P & R Letter.

Cabinet Decided 25 January…..

Despite the best efforts of a diverse, learned and highly credible opposition, Site B on Bathampton Meadows has been chosen by Cabinet to take forward as the east of Bath Park & Ride site. Caroline Kay made the BPT case AGAINST an east of Bath Park & Ride at yesterday’s Cabinet meeting. You can read Caroline’s 3 minute statement PR STATEMENT TO CABINET JAN 17 and our Background Paper here BPT P & R Background Paper Jan 2017

The meeting has been webcast and you can watch it here.
