New Grit Bin Requested Innox Road

We have asked that a new Grit Bin is placed towards the top of Innoox Road by Northview Close. The Council do not normally grant New Bins but we feel that there are exeptional circumstances that make this a need at this location. This is a very steep hill and very slippery.

BANES tree sale this weekend

Bath and North East Somerset Council are running the event on Saturday 22nd and Sunday 23rd January, as planting trees at this point during the winter will allow them to best establish themselves for next year's growing season.

The trees have been selected to fit into the average domestic garden and this will help us increase urban greening which will help us capture and improve air pollution, increase wildlife opportunities, reduce future heat island effects and just simply make urban life better for everyone.

A 2.5m pot grown tree would normally retail @ around £50 and we are selling them for just £10, a 1.5m pot tree would be around £25 and we are selling them for just £5! – so order your trees online here (to a limit of 5 trees per household) and fill your boots (of your car) in your positive action to fight the climate and ecological emergencies with us.

These are collectable from Radstock Road Collection Depot.

Dangerous Footpath Connection Hill

We have asked for the footpath that runs from Twerton High Street to the Lower Bristol Road Via Connection Hill be cleared of we leaf's as soon as possible as we have had several reports of people slipping on this steep path.

Wedgwood Road resurfacing

Another road in Twerton is to be resurfaced.  Wedgwood Road will be closed for 3 days (between 7am and 7pm) from Monday 10th February, to allow resurfacing to take place.

This will have an impact on the bus services and we will confirm exactly what will be happening with the buses closer to the time.

Newly registered Footpaths

Last year a number of footpaths in Whiteway and Southdown were identified as missing from the legal public right of way listings.

This has now been corrected and the footpaths in Haycombe Drive, Rosewarn Close and Blagdon Park as well as other roads in other areas have now been registered.

There is a legal record as well as a map showing the specific footpaths and these can been seen on the BANES website by clicking here (specifically item 18)
