There is a currently a consultation on walking and cycling plans for Bath city centre. You can see it and respond online here.
BathNES Green Party welcomes all new investment in walking, wheeling, cycling and public transport in the city centre of Bath. Making buses move quicker and more punctually is very important and will make public transport a more attractive option for local residents as well as visitors.
In general, we strongly support improving sustainable transport in the city centre of Bath. We believe that this will improve air quality, reduce congestion, improve people’s health and contribute to thriving communities.
Connectivity to existing and future infrastructure is key to providing good walking, wheeling and cycling routes.
