  • Consultation now open on the region’s plan for cycling and walking

    There is an opportunity to have a say in the Local Cycling and Walking Infrastructure Plan;

    The Local Cycling and Walking Infrastructure Plan is a detailed plan that identifies that over £400m of investment is needed and will be sought and channelled through the West of England Combined Authority. Working with Bath & North East Somerset, Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire councils, we’re aiming to provide high quality infrastructure to ensure the West of England is a region where cycling and walking are the preferred choice for shorter trips.

    What are your thoughts? Please view our plan and let us know your views.

    You can view the plan and access the consultation questionnaire at the link here.

    Note! Closes: 15/03/19

  • Climate Crisis Information

    The parish council and local residents have created a great summary sheet with both information and action you can take, which you can find here.

  • M5 J19 works and Wynhol viaduct joint repairs (3 to 21 February 2020)

    Highways England will shortly be carrying out a package of
    safety and improvement works on the M5 between J19 and J20.
    The work will include replacement of the joints on Wynhol viaduct and improvements to the J19 southbound exit slip.

    M5 J19 to J20 Wynhol viaduct – 3 to 21 February 2020
    They will carry out the majority of works overnight under lane closures when traffic flows are at their lowest. Some overnight closures will be necessary for resurfacing works:
    Southbound J19 to J20 overnight closure – 3 February 2020, 8pm to 6am
    Northbound J20 to J19 overnight closure – 10 February 2020, 8pm to 6am

    M5 J19 southbound exit slip
    These works will take place overnight Monday to Friday only, from 8pm to 6am. During the day the carriageway will remain open as unusual with coning in place around excavations. To reconfigure the lanes around the roundabout they will sometimes need to close part of the roundabout (again weeknights, overnight 8pm to 6am).

  • Let's add 100 new trees to the villages of Pill, Easton-in-Gordano and Ham Green!

    Come join in and collect a tree from from the Community Centre in Pill on Saturday 25th January at the Pill community market 10 – 12 (first come first served)
