Councillor David Bellotti (Lib-Dem, Lyncombe), Cabinet Member for Community Resources, said, “This is a really exciting opportunity for new development on a site whose potential, located in the heart of Bath, has never been realised. Here is a chance to open-up this part of the city to the River Avon.
