Cleaning up Bath’s air.

Not that many days left now before the councillors making up Bath and North East Somerset Council go into ‘purdah’ – it’s the period before a local election when they cannot talk to the press.

With ratepayers going to the polls on May 2nd l thought it a good moment to talk over the authority’s Clean Air Zone proposals with the cabinet member whose ‘baby’ it is – Councillor Bob Goodman.

Cllr Bob Goodman

B&NES is nailing its colours to a scheme with won’t now include cars in its scheme of charging non-complying vehicles for entry to the city centre. Though Bob told me in our interview this morning – Tuesday, March 12th – that it doesn’t mean they won’t come into the scheme of things in the future.

Happy to hear from other political groups on B&NES and anyone else with a point of view.
