On the hunt for green homes

Residents who have made their homes more energy efficient are being encouraged to come forward and take part in Bath Green Homes – a community project organised by Transition Bath, Bath Preservation Trust, and Bath & North East Somerset Council.

This year’s Open Homes Weekend is on September 27 and 28, and the organisers are looking for people who would like to open their home as part of the weekend.
Homes can be of any age - from a listed property to a modern new build, and of any type - from flats to family homes, owned or rented. All sorts of energy features are of interest, from the DIY and low cost measures such a draught proofing, right through to more elaborate measures such as insulation or renewable technologies.

Full support is provided to people opening their homes including an initial home visit from the co-ordinator, a pack containing all the information and materials you need, an opportunity to meet other home openers, and volunteer stewards to help you on the day. The first step is to register your interest by filling in a survey on website about your home or by getting in contact for a chat. You won’t be committing yourself to anything at this point.

Last year a house on the Hollow in Twerton featured this year it could be your turn.

The Open Homes Weekend is part of a wider programme of events focused on home energy efficiency that will run from September to November 2014. If you are interested in Bath Green Homes but don't feel your home would be suitable, there are lots of other ways you can get involved including volunteering, organising events, sponsoring, supporting in-kind, and spreading the word.
For more information you can follow @BathGreenHomes on Twitter, visit the website or to get in contact by email or telephone 01225 477528.

Poolemad Road

The consultation on the traffic regulation order for the removal of the double yellow lines opposite the Wedgewood Road roundabout will begin in the next few weeks.

The consultation will entail a local advertised sign and advertisements in the local papers inc the Bath Chronicle.

At the end of the consultation period the cabinet member will make her decision on when these lines can be removed.

Kelston View

After numerous visits to Kelston view recently we have become concerned about the structural integrity of parts of the road particularly where the number 5 bus runs.

It looks like part of  the road has sunk by several inches and we have asked the council to urgently investigate.

We have also asked that the whole length of Kelston view is considered for resurfacing as it is in a poor state.

Redland Park

We have asked Curo and the council to undertake some emergency repairs to parts of Redland Park.

1) We have reported the missing drain cover on the lane to the farm by number 85.

2) We have asked that the bollard is put back into the ground by 123.

3) We have asked that the signpost identifying housing numbers at the top of Recland park is put back into the ground as soon as possible.

We would hope that these works would be complete in the next few weeks.

Kelston View

We have asked Curo tp remove this tree that has grown form a sapling in an open plan area.

Local residents have raised concerns about this tree blocking important view points. Due to the type of the tree the roots may also cause damage to neighbouring properties.

Newton Road

We had a good meeting this morning with Highway officers and the headmaster of the Junior School concerning proposals for traffic calming on the road outside the school.

Plans will now be drawn up on a scheme to slow down traffic and make a safer crossing for children going into school in the morning and coming out at night.

The scheme when drawn up will then be consulted on with local residents before being installed later this year.

The money to pay for this scheme was in the Liberal Democrat capital budget which passed through council earlier this year.

Kelston View

I had a great time meeting residents along Kelston View this afternoon this afternoon, it was very pleasant to catch up with some old friends.

This afternoon follows up a larger team canvass on Saturday morning led by Gerry Curran.

Issues that have been raised are the subsidence of Kelston View and also that of parking. I picked up quite a few individual pieces of casework that I will be replying to in the next few days.

Highland & Landseer Road

We have asked the council to clear up the litter and rubbish that has been allowed to build up on the rear footpaths on both Highland Road and Landseer Road.

Both you local Councillors have spent many and hour clearing up litter that has not been very well cleared up in the past.

We would hope that this area would be cleared up in the near future.
