All Residents,
Langdon Road,
Bath.


Dear Resident,

During June we have called on everyone in Langdon Road.  Many residents were out and so we left our calling card.  However, we did speak to a number of residents and will be getting back individually on confidential casework. However, several issues were raised which are relevant to all.

By and large Langdon Road residents are pleased that
·         we have not raised Council Tax for two years.
·         Culverhay Sports Centre is remaining open

However, concerns were raised about
·         Bath Rugby's plans for the Rec, especially over any over-dominance.
·         Dangerous parking outside the One Stop Shop in The Hollow.  The Community Police Team are to keep an eye on this.
·         Expensive bus fares.  We are working with the bus operators to improve the service, increase passenger numbers, and so reduce prices especially for young people.
·         Lidl's, when is it going to happen?  This is due to the two landowners of the site failing to reach agreement on the whole development.  Local Councillors are working with Lidl to resolve these issues as we are keen to add the Lidl supermarket to our shopping offer in Bath.
·         Blue Badge parking in the City Centre.
·         Snow wardens and gritting of path through Langdon Road.
·         Flytipping in lane behind Padfield Close.  We have had this cleared up.
·         Overhanging trees obstructing pavements.

Please feel free to get in touch with us either by email or telephone (details above).

Yours sincerely,

Paul Crossley                  Dine Romero
