Active Travel Consultation Response
Bath & North East Somerset Council are currently consulting on three proposed schemes for promoting Active Travel. These are generating a lot of interest and press coverage which you may have seen.
We would encourage all members to respond to these consultations where they have an interest, in particular those that are likely to impact on Widcombe. The closure date is the 21 March 2021. The link to the BathNES consultation areas is as follows:

There are three schemes to comment on
Combe Down to the University of Bath: Copseland
City Centre to the University of Bath: Beckford Road and North Road
A4 Upper Bristol Road
As an association the WA has written to the council with our overall views. We felt this was more appropriate than completing the on-line consultation as an organisation as this would not allow the subtlety needed for our response. We also recognise that there will be divergent views from across our membership on many of the questions raised.
