Update on the Getting Around Bath Transport Strategy

Decision Maker: Cabinet

Decision status: Approved

Is Key decision?: Yes

Is subject to call in?: Yes


The Council adopted the Getting Around Bath Transport Strategy in November 2014.  This report provides an update to some of the key issues within the Strategy and how they are being taken forward.  A key recommendation of the Strategy included the need to develop a new Park and Ride (P&R) to the east of Bath.  This report recommends that a public consultation be undertaken on the options for the delivery of this facility.


RESOLVED (unanimously) that:


1)  The Cabinet noted the progress being made on the Getting Around Bath Transport Strategy, and agrees the additional measures proposed within paragraphs 5.3 to 5.7 to support the delivery of this Strategy.

2)  The Cabinet agreed to undertake a public consultation on the options to help identify a preferred location for a new P&R east of Bath.

Reasons for the decision:

A period of public engagement will help inform the Cabinet and gauge public support for these proposals.

Alternative options considered:

The Cabinet could indicate a preference for a site without further public engagement but this would not be an open or a transparent process.
