B&NES Council have extended the deadline for the online consultation on Liveable Neighbourhoods until  Sunday 18th October. Follow this link for information and the survey – please complete it,  and pass on to anyone else in B&NES

Bath & North East Somerset Council has developed three strategies to achieve liveable neighbourhoods, which aim to improve air quality and health, encourage more walking and cycling and reduce vehicles in residential areas.

The three liveable neighbourhoods strategies are:

  *   Low traffic neighbourhood strategy
  *   Residents’ parking schemes strategy
  *   On-street electric vehicle charging strategy
Councillor Joanna Wright said: “To improve both air quality and public health, we need to create neighbourhoods in which people can safely walk and cycle and reduce our reliance on cars. We believe it is possible to do this at the same time as maintaining vehicle access to homes and businesses. By reconsidering how we use our streets, we can transform community spaces and support local businesses to thrive. These are ambitious strategies but it’s important that we hear people’s views to get liveable neighbourhoods right for everyone. Please have your say by responding to our consultation.”
