One thought on “Open Meeting, Thinking differently about travel in Bath, 3rd March 2018

  1. Unfortunately I was not able to attend the event but was very enthusiastic about the model. The plan to look for creative solutions to local problems through discussions between local people makes me hopeful of an effective voice for small communities. Definitely an antidote to the feeling that the experience of those affected by planning decisions is irrelevant.
