Wera Hobhouse, our MP, is inviting members of Resident’s Associations to join her for a Bath Briefing.
Here’s her invitation… Please contact her office if you would like to attend.
We face a multitude of challenges over the coming years. Bath already has serious issues with transport and pollution, and housing. These will be become even more acute over the coming years; projections show growth in student numbers and tourist numbers, alongside a growing population and business growth.
There are many of us who are working to ensure our city remains a beautiful place to live and work, and I think it is tremendously important that, in our deliberations, we have the most accurate information possible. To this end I am arranging a Bath Briefing, where I have asked key stakeholders from the Universities, from business, from tourism, from public transport, and from the Council, to share their projections for the future with us, residents and campaigners.
I would like to invite you to this event on Friday 23rd February, between 2pm and 4pm, at BRSLI, 16-18 Queen Square, Bath, BA1 2HN. I have asked speakers to talk for about 10 minutes around their projections for the future and then to take questions from the floor.
Robin Kerr from FOBRA has kindly offered to sum up the event, because I am asking groups and campaigners to get together to look at how communities, the city, and the areas surrounding Bath, should respond to the challenges ahead. I will do my best to be available to assist in this process.
Please contact Wera Hobhouse’s office because places will be limited. RSVP to email@example.com. If you have any questions, please contact Matt McCabe tel:07711 047267

You will recently have received leaflets about how the new waste collections will work, introducing the new black wheelie bins or black bags for household waste. You should receive yours shortly. We recommend you mark them with your address.
Also please be aware if you are short of recycling bins or your blue cardboard bag is disintegrating you can call council connect on 01225 394041 to get replacements or additional bins. With the winter coming please try to use the green bin lids so your recycling does not get blown away before collection.
If you have any issues with the new system please contact B&NES or Matt Cockrane our councillor.
