Friends of Lyncombe Hill Fields Launch Meeting: Monday 19 October 7.30 pm.
The Friends of Lyncombe Hill Fields (FLHF) organisation is now managing these 10 acres of land under licence from the Council, aiming to conserve and enhance its wild beauty and biodiversity while safeguarding and encouraging public access. WA and other local community associations have committed to provide financial support as a contribution to mowing, insurance and other costs.
FLHF will hold an inaugural public meeting (via Zoom) at 19.30 on Monday 19 October 2020. This will provide further information about and discussion of FLHF’s objectives and organisation, and potential opportunities for involvement with FLHF. Many thanks to WA members and others who have signed up to ‘attend’. If you haven’t done so, but would like to (or just to register your general interest) please send your name and email address to FLHF at email@example.com. Formal invitations to the meeting will be sent by email in advance with joining instructions. The event is expected to last about 1¼ hours.
WA Annual General Meeting Thursday 22 October 7.30 pm
Many thanks to all members who have signed up for our Zoom AGM. If you haven’t yet done so, and would like to participate, just drop a reply to this email. Formal invitations will then be sent by email in advance with joining instructions. We expect this event to be concluded inside an hour.
My September Talking Points even further update edition featured a note from Mike Wrigley (WA’s lead on traffic issues) outlining the Council’s consultation on Liveable Neighbourhoods (Low Traffic Neighbourhoods, Residents’ Parking Zones and On-Street Charging for Electric Vehicles). He made the point that these measures would in time fundamentally alter Bath and how we all get around. If you haven’t already done so, it is well worth taking a look at what is envisaged and offering your own comments to the Council: https://beta . bathnes . gov . uk/live
Do feel free also to drop Mike a line (by replying to this email) so that your committee can gauge how WA members feel about these issues, and thank you for those who have already done so.
Residents’ Parking Zone (RPZ) Extension
It’s understandable that the Council should wish to reflect and consult on overall traffic management strategies including RPZs. But as foreshadowed in Mike’s note, this carries the risk of delaying much needed individual local measures already well in hand, such as the planned RPZ for Greenway Lane, Lyncombe Vale, Lyncombe Vale Road, Rosemount Lane and Perrymead. You might like to see the attached recent exchange between WA and the Council on this.
Finally, infection rates are rising nationally and locally. You might wish to see the attached note from Beech Avenue Residents’ Association (Claverton Down) to its members.
Do please keep yourself and others safe.
