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.

New data on air pollution has been released by B&NES, covering the period up to the end of 2014, show that nitrogen dioxide pollution levels remain well above the legal limit along the main road network and in the city centre.
