Don’t throw the baby out with the bathwater.

The Council wants your help in planning a bright new post-covid and low- carbon future for B&NES.

I want to make sure they don’t forget what makes us money.

Plus could our recycle lorries carry a shovel?

  1. When it comes to conservation of the Georgian heritage, which I fully support, the Council needs to recognise that houses in the likes of Great Pulteney Street are peoples’ homes and they need to be able to be made liveable, which in the context of Climate Change means becoming more energy efficient. After all the people whose homes they are, are paying for their upkeep so that the Council can benefit from the revenue that tourism brings to the city. The planning department should therefore , in the case of simple improvements as mentioned, should be an ‘enabling’ agency rather than force people to jump through bureaucratic hoops to gain permission.
