You can find the full details and a plan of the proposals here - you need to give your views by THIS FRIDAY, 18 AUGUST.
STOP PRESS - They have extended the consultation until 1 September because some of the consultation letters were returned marked undeliverable.
The roads affected are: Broadway, Church Road, Cleeve Road, Elmgrove Crescent, Firgrove Crescent, Gleneagles, Highway, Home Orchard, Kennedy Way, Lawns Road, Link Road, Melrose Avenue, Orchard Close, Painswick Drive, Ridgeway, Stanshawe Crescent, Station Road, Sundridge Park, Swan Field, The Glen, Tree Leaze, Turnpike Close, Walnut Avenue, Westerleigh Road.
Whatever your views about this scheme, it's yet another example of inadequate consultation by South Glos:
- Virtually no publicity for a significant consultation
- Only 3 weeks to comment
- Over the summer holidays, so many people will only have a week to respond
- Only accepting comments online - what about people who don't have internet?
Let's Get Yate Moving
What's more, Yate has now got to a size where it needs a decent size "two-way" Park and Ride site, with all-day parking for people travelling to Bristol and the North Fringe, plus parking for people working or spending long times in the Shopping Centre and the public buildings nearby.
The Liberal Democrat Focus Team has been running a 'Let's Get Yate Moving' campaign since 2014 to ensure that the Yate and Chipping Sodbury area gets the transport infrastructure it desperately needs. If you support this too, please do sign our petition at www.southgloslibdems.org.uk/letsgetyatemoving and pass it on to friends and family members.
