Active Travel Consultations – Please respond to make sure your views are known

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. Because there is a probable direct effect on traffic using Bathwick Hill the Bathwick Hill Residents Association has responded to the proposed experimental closure of North Road to through traffic to provide a route which is largely free of motor traffic for cycles and electric scooters. The content of the response was sent to you on Monday and is available on our website http://bathwickhill.info.
We would encourage all members to respond to these consultations where they have an interest, in particular those that are likely to impact on Bathwick Hill. The closure date to respond is the 21 March 2021. The link to the BathNES consultation areas is as follows:
