25.10.17: Feltham Road will be closed between Abson Road and the A46 for patching works for approximately 2 weeks. This will happen sometime between 23rd November 2017 and May 2019. Read the full SGC notice here, and see the map here.

24.10.2017: The “Final” Joint Transport Study (JTS) was published on the 20th October (click here). It contains a lot of new information and data.  It even identifies a third option (the middle option) and implies this is still under consideration.  This document contains information material to the consultation but was published just days after the public consultation had finished.  Some references to J18a in the document could be read to imply that the East option has already been selected.

03.11.17: The final draft of the West of England Joint Spatial Plan (JSP) will be considered by the four councils, North Somerset, Bristol City, Bath & North East Somerset and South Gloucestershire during early November.  

The JSP will provide the strategic overarching development framework to guide housing*, employment and infrastructure requirements to 2036.

Public ‘engagement’ (their word) will take place bewteen 22nd November and 10th January, 2018. Following this process, the draft plan, along with all of the feedback received will be sent to the Secretary of State (SoS) for their review and approval in March 2018.

This link will take you to the documents and you should look for information and appendices for Item 9 on the agenda.

* Please note that Pucklechurch Parish Council have stated that there is no suggestion within the proposed document that any sites around Pucklechurch have been identified for housing.

15.11.17: Protect The Green Belt – Let Luke Hall know you care.

On 22 November the Chancellor, Philip Hammond, will announce his Autumn Budget, and is proposing release of Green Belt land for housing. We have evidence(*) that the overwhelming majority (94%) of Pucklechurch residents believed that the preservation of the Green Belt was important to our community, while

only 3% felt that this was not important.  Don’t ignore this threat.

You can help to steer the budget in the right direction by writing to Luke Hall today.  To make it easy follow the link below to the Campaign for the Protection of Rural England and fill in the form.  An email will be sent to Luke Hall automatically. Alternatively write to Luke Hall directly.
