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.
FoBRA has kept in close touch with the Council and made a major input into the preparations for the Bath transport strategy. We have met the consultants charged with drafting it, Mott MacDonald, and were pleased to see that they are well seized of the city's problems.
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 and pollution, 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.
