Redhill Parking I had a very positive meeting at NSC this week with Barrie Taylor of Wrington PC and the Highways Team. We got an agreement that the residents of Redhill will finally get an enforceable parking scheme to prevent opportunistic airport car parking along Church Road, hopefully sometime next financial year. North Somerset Chief Executive Visit I recently met with Jo Walker here in Wrington. Our discussions included issues at Gatcombe Farm. We visited the site and discussed its rather sorry history with local residents. After I raised several issues with the Enforcement team, the new owner appears to have removed the people who were living illegally on site. I’m hopeful that there’s a sensible solution to this problem, and an end to the unwelcome activities and semi dereliction that has been ongoing for decades. Goblin Coombe Environment Centre I attended a meeting with WSM Mayor Mark Canniford and Regeneration Manager Martin O Neill to discuss the future of the centre. The intention had been to market the property from October for potential change of use. However, we have agreed a ‘stay of execution’ at least until January whist local resident Darren Hall works up a possi-ble plan involving Avon Wildlife Trust, Forest Schools and others. Very welcome breathing space. White Lines After liaising with the Open Spaces team, I was pleased to see that our white lines have been mostly refreshed. I know they missed a few bits, I’ll do my best to get these sorted asap. School Bus After working with Transport Officers, I have gained agreement for the introduction of an additional stop along the A38 for children travelling to Backwell School. The new stop will be close to Ashford Rd, and will avoid the need for children living in the top of the village having to walk along the dangerous stretch to The Darlington Arms. Anti-Social Behaviour Thanks to everyone who has been brave enough to come and see me about this. I have written to our local beat officer and PCSO and will hopefully have more to say in coming weeks. It’s really important to me that we are supported by our local police.
