Bath Alliance for Transport and Public Realm
Under Bath Bridge sponsorship, fifteen leading Bath organisations have joined informally as the Bath Alliance for Transport and the Public Realm (the Alliance). The Alliance is a unified voice for the majority of Bath stakeholders with vital interests in excellent transport and public realm. It has come together to support B&NES Council’s transport effort in Bath and to urge the council to develop a comprehensive, long term transport plan for the city. The Alliance expresses no views on individual transport initiatives but it does offer suggestions on what makes an effective transport plan.
A Transport Plan for Bath would start with a Vision of Bath as ‘A beautiful city in a green setting with vibrant public spaces, a historic centre free of all but essential traffic, clean air, good mobility and excellent transport infrastructure’.
The Alliance members are Abbey Hotel, Aviva Investors, Bath Bridge, Bath City FC, Stay in Bath, Bath Preservation Trust, Bath Rugby, Bath Festivals, CARA, Curo, Cycle Bath, FirstBus, FoBRA, Sustrans and Wessex Water.
On 22 November 2016 the Alliance met with the B&NES Council political and executive leadership teams to present its proposals for the development of a Transport Plan for Bath.
