FoBRA is the main representative voice for residents' groups in Bath.
We meet regularly with Council leaders, elected members, officers, the Police and the business community to make them aware of the views of Bath residents and to try and ensure that they take our concerns into account.
Observers are welcome to attend FoBRA committee meetings. Click here to view the arrangements for observers.
The Council is due to take decisions in November on a Bath Transport Strategy. It is essential that the opportunity is taken to make a start on tackling the serious problems of traffic congestion and air pollution in the city.
FoBRA will be holding its Winter Reception in Victoria Art Gallery 1830-2000 on Tuesday 20th Jan 2015. Tickets will be available for sale at the next Committee meeting on Tuesday 4th Nov 2014.
We have secured the Council's agreement to a further detailed engagement with key stakeholders before the Council consults generally on the Placemaking Plan. We have urged them to set out a vision for the city centre, to address the problems of congestion, pollution and student housing, to require development of brownfield land before greenfield, and to promulgate space standards for housing.
We are keeping a close watch on proposed developments at the Recreation Ground and Bath Quays Waterside.
