Here are  the Talking Points following our WA Committee meeting on the 6 April.

Widcombe Businesses

We will all welcome the further easing of restrictions on Monday – none more so than our local businesses.  Please do all you can to support them as they take the first steps to opening up.

Zoom meeting - Wednesday 14 April at 7.30pm 

Friends of Lyncombe Fields  - The First Six Months

Since the beginning of September the land has been managed under licence by the Friends of Lyncombe Hill Fields CIC which has the backing of the WA and three other local residents’ associations plus a community group. In this informative talk we will hear about their plans for the field’s future and also some interesting history.

This talk is FREE but you will need to register via the link below so that we can send you the zoom invite. If you would like to make a donation toward costs you can opt to do this at the same time.

Residents Parking Zone – Consultation – deadline Monday 19th April

The Council is currently consulting over the introduction of a Residents Parking Zone for Greenway Lane, Lyncombe Vale, Lyncombe Vale Road, Rosemount Lane and Perrymead. 

If you live directly in one of these streets it is important that you make your views known.  All households and businesses within the proposed zone are being asked for their views, but people who live outside the proposed zone are also invited to respond. The details of the proposals can be found on :  BathNES consultation link.  This also gives access to the on-line response form.  

Annual General Meeting

Your Committee is aware that we need to arrange an AGM but have deferred a decision in the hope that we will be able to hold an “in person” meeting later in the year as COVID guidelines allow. It would be so good to be able to meet socially again. We will keep you posted.

Bath River Line Study – initial consultation deadline Friday 16th April

There are proposals for developing a new linear park from Batheaston to Newbridge park and ride. Bath River Line are keen to engage with local communities and gather views at an early stage. There is an online interactive map at  Bath Riverline consultation.  Views gathered through this exercise will inform the next stage of the process so please take this opportunity to make your views known.
