Out on the Doorstep in Landseer Road

We have had a very pleasant session talking with residents in Landseer Road who have told us that they are pleased with the work rate of their local councillors.

Having said that there are matters that need to be resolved and we as of yesterdays entry been chasing the large mounds of bark that have jus been dumped in two areas and we have requested that these are raked out properly.

We have also noticed that the are is in need of a good litter pick and Gerry will be in the area on Friday to give it a good clear up.

To find out more about this exciting scheme the either contact Pc Adge Secker at Bath Police Station by dialling 101 or contact Tim or Gerry and we will pass your details onto  Adge.

Bus Shelters and Bus Stops Kelston View

A new Bus shelter has been installed on Kelston View by Wedgewood Road flats as part of the Bath Transport package to encourage greater bus use across the area.

The controversial bus build out by 38 Kelston View will soon be removed and the original bus stop put back as it was. This was brought about by complaints from local residents.
