Highland Road ( street cleaning issues )

We have asked the council and Curo to take action to remove the weeds and rubbish from the footpaths in Highland Road.

Weeds that have grown through the paths are not acceptable  and residents should not be expected to put up with the untidy conditions that have been created.

We would expect the are to be brought back up to standard in a very short period of time.

We will be monitoring the condition of this area and will be chasing the matter up if it is not brought up to an acceptable standard.

Newton Road ( Road repairs delays likely )

Newton Road in Twerton is currently undergoing repairs to the road surface and there are two way traffic lights operating.

The works will take two days to complete and hold ups are likely.

Please avoid Newton Road if travelling by car today 31st July and tomorrow 1st August if at all possible.

Twerton High Street ( Potential traffic delays)

We have been informed of possible delays for traffic just under Twerton arch that will be in place between between 7th August to the 16th August,

Western Power are carrying out works in the-footpath and the highway and may be using traffic control signalling although I cant see the point as it is all one way.

The issue is that there is likely to be delays in traffic flows from the Lower Bristol Road into Twerton High Street and residents should be aware of possible delays.

innox Park improvement its time to have your say.

Innox Park Improvement Project – Have Your Say!

Bath and North East Somerset Council is asking how Innox Park can be improved for people and wildlife.

A consultation survey has been launched to understand how the park is used, what people like and dislike about it and to ask what improvements should be made.  The Council hopes that this will be the start of a long term programme of improvements for the park and to kick start the process it has set aside £79,000 of Section 106 developer contributions to spend on improvements on the ground.

Anyone with an interest in the park is invited to take part in the consultation in one of the following ways:

1)       Complete the online survey consultation at
2)       Come along to Innox Park between 1.30pm and 3.30pm on Saturday 8th September 2018 when members of the Council will be on hand to hear your views. Copies of the consultation survey will be available on the day
3)       Email your suggestions on how the park could be improved to

Completed surveys must be returned by 5pm on Sunday 30th September 2018 when the initial community consultation will close.

For further information please contact the Council’s Parks Team on

You can also let myself or Sarah know.

North Way - Update

Following numerous requests and meetings with the Council I am pleased to see the 2 largest potholes have finally been repaired.

The big hole at the top of the hill was repaired last month as well, which at least makes the road a little safer for people to use, however, I will continue to push for the whole of this road to be restructured as soon as the funds are put into the budget.

We are also working hard to get all the roads across our area fully repaired and safe for all road users.  

If you have any issues on your street that you want to make us aware of, please do get in touch.
