Action on the Gravel Walk parking issue.

Gravel Walk has become a bit of a vehicle park.

Residents – with access to Bath’s historic Gravel Walk – are being contacted by B&NES with a warning about a new locking arrangement to stop the build-up of parked vehicles lining this route to Brock Street and the Royal Crescent.

As you can see CARA – the local Residents Association – and the Council will be holding a meeting with residents once the new local and access system is in operation – to ‘work out a satisfactory permanent solution.’
