Twerton High Street (Bath City)

Bath City football club have big ambitions to redevelop the stand and frontage to their ground and that could include more shopping, living accommodation, and community based services.

There is a real opportunity for a revamp of the whole area from High Street towards the ground over the next decade but will the club and its partners in the community as well as business leaders be willing to take the brave step.

It remains to be seen how this will affect the whole community in the High Street area.

We will be seeking clarification that can be shared in public how far the club is willing to go and what sort of consultation with the community will take place.

What is clear is that we will publish information as it becomes available and ensure that the public have their say on this very important matter.

Virgin care

We thought that the following information may be helpful to residents.

Virgin Care is now the prime provider of community health and care services in Bath and North East Somerset.

Services were safely transferred from Sirona care & health at one minute past midnight on Saturday 1 April as planned.

What happens next?

There won’t be any major changes to how services run over the first 100 days as Virgin Care focus on induction events and training for colleagues who have transferred, working with them to refine the future plans for their services. 

Over the coming years, the CCG and the Council have commissioned Virgin Care to deliver more joined-up services that support people to improve their overall health and wellbeing rather than simply treating their conditions. 

This will include the gradual introduction of new technology to reduce time-consuming paperwork and provide people with a single record for all the health and care services they use.

After receiving complaints from residents about fly tipping and the area being run down we have managed to persuade Curo to take some action.

The are going to remove the fly tipping, repair the broken fencing and repair the broken gates.
