Minutes:

Emma Adams read out the statement where she said that there was no need for another Park and Ride and that the Council had not provided business case.  Emma Adams also said that visitor numbers had been inflated during Christmas Market period, and that those numbers were not true reflection on the average number of people coming to Bath.  Emma Adams concluded her statement by saying that there was a lack of communication from the Council and that the whole process was undemocratic and secretive, without the relevant facts and figures.

 

Harry Adams (11 year old) said that he had studied proposals for the Park and Ride but that he had not seen a real need for another Park and Ride.  Harry Adams also said that another 1,000 cars would not make much difference to the traffic in London Road; other Park and Rides had not been used well; concerns about the wildlife in Meadows; and that technology is moving forward so parking and pollution in Bath would not be an issue.

Piers Taylor gave a statement (on behalf of Andrew Lea) by saying that only 57% of existing Park and Rides around Bath were used during the busiest times.  Piers Taylor also said that the images presented by the officers were misleading, that Park and Ride would not be concealed by planting trees, that the proposed development was ecologically illiterate and it would be an act of environmental vandalism, and that Park and Ride East of Bath was not a solution for traffic problems.
