How safe is it to Swim in the River Frome at Freshford?

Permit treated sewage for river Frome?

Freshford Mill is located in a conservation area, it is in an area of outstanding natural beauty (AONB) and a site of special scientific interest and there are colonies of protected bats.

Environment Agency:



NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN in accordance with Schedule 10 of the Water Resources Act 1991 that an application has been made to the Environment Agency by Ypres Rose Developments Limited for consent to discharge up to 20 cubic metres per day of secondary treated domestic sewage effluent containing no trade effluent to the River Frome at National Grid Reference ST 78651 59700 from Freshford Mill, Rosemary Lane, Freshford, Bath, BA2 7UD.



Freshford parish council has not received any notification of this application, according to the council minutes, although a phone call was made, reporting that a broken sewage pipe at Rosemary had been discharging raw sewage - possibly due to heavy plant damage or tree movement. The Environment Agency has also not published a link for the public to comment.

Unfortunately, there is some evidence to show that sewage effluent can affect the protected bat population.

I suppose there might be a reason why the Freshford Mill development could not be connected to the main sewer, other than the financial cost; perhaps its because it is located in the flood plain and would need a pumping station.

Once again Ypres Rose, the Freshford Mill developers, have not notified the village about an application or activity that could alarm local people. After all it may be perfectly safe to discharge this treated sewage so why alarm people by not taking an opportunity to inform locals? Unless there is someting to hide?

Roads and road rage

Link to this post
<H1>Roads and road rage and the economy</H1>
<P>With the failure of both Wiltshire and BANES to repair the damage to Staples Hill one might wonder how a proposal to spend over one million pounds on a foot bridge across the river Avon at Bradford on Avon can be justified. The damage to Staples Hill has been caused by heavy traffic including tracked vehicles weighing up to 28 tons. Most of that traffic is due to the development at Freshford Mill (but which has been much less than we feared as demolition waste was crushed and re-used on site). However there is an increase in heavy goods and other traffic due to being misguided by Satnav systems.</P>
<P>Staple Hill's road surface is so poor that local motorists will take a central position unless forced to do so by oncoming traffic. Poor cyclists have no choice but to go into the potholes, either stop or risk aggressive action by impatient if not ignorant motorists. At night the road is dangerous to cyclists. </P>
<P>One may question whether the financial crisis is real when one million pound is being seriously considered in the building of a footbridge over the river Avon at Bradford on Avon when basic road maintenance is being ignored.  And what is worse is that all that needs to be done at Bradford is to raise the pavement, which at present in some places is below the legal limit and add railings. There is no need for an additional bridge.  It seems to me that what we have to contend with is a bunch of crooks or ignoramuses. </P>
<P>As for the financial crisis the background to neglect of the roads due to money being gambled away. Who has been sacked in these National banks? I may be wrong but no one! One neighbour has been charged over £180 for being overdrawn (Lloyds bank) Hence my observation that these people are crooks. I'd sooner have government restored to the monarchy rather than this lot of either ignoramuses or at worst crooks.  <BR></P>

Vandalised road sign: weak bridge 3 tons

Link to this post

Update: vandalised road sign Freshford

It is now almost the end of April 2009. Nothing has been done to rectify this damage. And also the sign: "3 ton weight limit ahead" located at the junction of Crabtree lane and Mill lane  has been turned around so that motorists will not see it.

I have reported  a driver who ignored the advisory road signs and also the possible breaking of the law by that driver who is employed by A.S. Taylor. This driver drove his vehicle down Rosemary lane Freshford.  The vehicle was loaded with twenty reinforced concrete beams for delivery to Freshford Mill. As I understand the regulations the weight was overloaded.  Since taking the earlier photos, someone has vandalised the road sign: 

I do not know whether if the road sign is altered this absolves the driver from the law.

In relation to the lorry owned by A.S. Taylor which drove its Leyland Daf 75-300 vehicle down Rosemary lane with a load possibly exceeding 30 tons when it's gross load according to the Leyland Daf website should not have exceeded 18 tons. I understand that this vehicle was unable to brake properly on its descent down Rosemary lane. This means that a vehicle or other roas user coming up the hill would be killed or seriously injured by the vehicle or it would have have to have driven into the cottages or the wall.  A vehicle should be able to stop within the distance which the driver can see to be clear.
