Waste collections (Twerton)

Many residents have been asking us about the new waste collections in the Twerton area and is there a definitive map so after a bit of research here is the map that the council have published.

If you are not a Twerton resident and live in Bath & North East Somerset then please contact your local councillor.

East Close

A few weeks ago we visited the residents of East Close on a Saturday afternoon to carry out a consultation on proposals to put waiting restrictions in the turning circle at the bottom of the road.

The consultation had a mixed result with about a third of the residents that we spoke to opposed to the proposals.

We have informed the council of the results to the consultation and it will be down to them how to proceed.

Please contact us for any further information on this issue.

Bath & North East Somerset Council now require a councillor referral for any waiting restriction request, please contact us if you need any help.

Woodhouse Road ( resurfaced pavements )

We are pleased to see that the pavement at Woodhouse Road has been resurfaced as we have requested.

Although the practise of micro asphalting has left some residue and covered up drains we have been reassured that remedial work to resolve this will soon be put into place.

Kelston View - Success

We have today received confirmation that the money that I managed to secure in the budget for this coming year will enable the whole of Kelston View to be repaired.

I have spoken with a BANES Council officer in the Highways team and he has confirmed that the Micro-asphalting from The Hollow to North Way will take place at the beginning of April.

Junction of Kelston View & Windrush Close

We also have confirmation that, following a meeting with the contractor this week, the section of Kelston View from the junction with Wedgwood Road around to Haycombe Drive has been scheduled to be repaired in June.  

The final, and worst section, between North Way and Wedgwood Road has been scheduled to be completed in July. The work on this section will take longer to complete than the other 2 areas due to the complexity of the procedure that needs to be carried out.

All the above work is subject to weather conditions and the council will be sending letters to residents closer to the work being carried out to confirm what will be happening.

Obviously whilst this work is being carried there will be disruption and road closures necessary, but we will hopefully have a better road to drive on by mid Summer.
