Freshford Somerset Village Hall development
I recently voted in favour of the proposed Freshford village hall development. However, I did add some comments. I think that the new development should not reduce the space for cars and other vehicles which is at present pressed for space. The inclusion of a doctors surgery will mean that visitors will increase.
Public transport alone will not be able to supply a suitable service with a trip time of one and half hours between buses.
When I moved to Freshford I registered with the Combe down Surgery in Bath. Provided I can still drive to the surgery I will not change my surgery. If like others I may only be able to walk to a surgery I will have to rely on family or friends. In the mean time for those who can drive and who are registered with the Freshford surgery it is important to ensue that people can park their car in the Village Hall car park. The plans for the redevelopment do encroach on the present parking space.
To increase the parking space or at least ensure that it is not reduced in this important development there needs to be a change in the architects plans. There is no functional reason for having a veranda, is there? Similarly the porch is massive. I presume that the structural framework is timber? But why paint them black?Link to Freshford Somerset village hall development
