Paul Cole 17 Inch Marnock, G74 2JQ S 24/06/2019: I grew up near bath and I'm a shareholder in the club
I think this development will be a fantastic benefit to the city and the Twerton area. The multi use pitches in particular will be a fantastic asset for the community.
24/06/2019
Martyn Dormer 30 Lymore Gardens, Twerton, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 1AQ S 05/06/2019: Vital for the regeneration of Twerton. 05/06/2019
Mr And Mrs J Brooke 56 Shaws Way, Twerton, Bath, BA2 1QQ, O 05/06/2019: With reference to the Planning Application of 19/02276/FUL. On reading the application. we feel that there will be so much more pollution in respect of more vehicles using the High Street, plus the buses are already full and at time you cannot get onto them due to prams etc. We think that having student accommodation in Twerton High Street is far t much as there is already three locations on the Lower Bristol Road. It seems that it is all on our side of the river. 05/06/2019
Barrie Parker Dayr-House, Prospect Road, Widcombe, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 6AY S 05/06/2019: Essential to both ensuring the future of Bath City FC and improving area around the club for residents. 05/06/2019
Tom Galloway 107 West Avenue, Oldfield Park, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 3QB S 05/06/2019: Improvements to the Twerton area will be beneficial to locals, students, visitors and the wider community of Bath. 05/06/2019
Andy Tanner 6 Belvoir Road, Twerton, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 3PS S 05/06/2019: Support the application, have reservations about the proportion of affordable accommodation. 05/06/2019
Geoff Humphries 8 Quebec, Twerton, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 1DN O 20/06/2019: Too much accommodation for the size of the site.
No facilities for cars or house deliveries and emergency services.
Additional strain on the already clogged transport infrastructure.
Majority of residents in the immediate vacinity are older with a large number that have mobility issues that rely on the already strained public transport, this quantity of additional residents would potentially result in the current residents becoming more isolated.
20/06/2019
Steve Simmons 23 Chestnut House, Bishport Ave, Bristol, BS13 0RP S 04/06/2019: Will be fantastic for the football club and the local community of Twerton modernising both BCFC and Twerton. 04/06/2019
Steve Tanner 85 Thicket Mead, Midsomer Norton, Radstock, Bath And North East Somerset, BA3 2SL S 05/06/2019: This forward thinking development of Twerton Park will be a huge boost to the morale of the local community, and bring pride to the area. I give it my full backing. 05/06/2019
Christopher George 4 Windsor Castle, Upper Bristol Road, Lower Weston, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA1 3DN S 04/06/2019: I support this proposal. 04/06/2019
Mike Harrison 7 Hanover Terrace, Gillingham Terrace, Walcot, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA1 6LJ S 04/06/2019: This is an excellent idea for both the club and the community 04/06/2019
Dan Oliver 27 Norman Road, Saltford, Bristol, Bath And North East Somerset, BS31 3BQ S 04/06/2019: This will be a huge positive for Twerton, and will enable the football club to play an even greater role within the local community. 04/06/2019
Caleb Howe 54 First Avenue, Oldfield Park, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 3NW S 04/06/2019: The club has done a wonderful job for the local community and would enrich the economy of the local area.

The parking for the current club is very uneven and needs to be re-levelled.

The introduction of a 3G style pitch may reduce running costs in the future.

04/06/2019
Ian Dunning 131 The Oval, Southdown, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 2HF S 04/06/2019: This application is much needed and long overdue! 04/06/2019
Jason Towells 173 Oxleaze Way, Paulton, Bristol, BS39 7AU, S 04/06/2019: This will improve facilities for the benefit of the local community. 04/06/2019
Stephen Tainton 38 Sladebrook Avenue, Southdown, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 2LB S 04/06/2019: To get this area of Bath will a 21st Century model facility that the people of Bath can be proud and use the facility for fitness and health 05/06/2019: HOPES IT PASSES 05/06/2019
Gareth Higgs 48 Venn Grove, Hartley, Plymouth, PL3 5PH S 04/06/2019: As a former resident of Bath and now frequent visitor for family & leisure purposes I wholeheartedly support the above application. The proposal seeks to redevelop and revitalise a deprived and often forgotten part of the city of Bath, which has decreased in vitality and vibrancy over many years. It will provide community facilities to a neighbourhood much in need of such provision and will benefit the local community of Twerton, Southdown and Oldfield Park. 04/06/2019
Simon Cryer 34 Rosslyn Road, Newbridge, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA1 3LH S 04/06/2019: 04/06/2019
Steven Brooks 181 Hillcrest Drive, Southdown, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 1HF S 04/06/2019: This scheme is vital to the sustainability of Bath City Football club and the regeneration of the local area. 04/06/2019
Paul Hudd 114 Alderton Way, Trowbridge, BA14 0UP S 04/06/2019: Would improve the local area economy due to increased activity in the area, and while disruption would be caused in the short term, long term it would enable the area to prosper. 04/06/2019
Terence Nicholas 11A Providence Place, Midsomer Norton, Radstock, Bath And North East Somerset, BA3 2LD S 04/06/2019: Transforming the appearance of a run down stadium together with the financial investment is positive for the Twerton environment which has lagged far behind with this kind of re-development when compared to more prosperous areas of the city. 04/06/2019
Jennifer Brindley 23 Thomas Street, Walcot, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA1 5NN S 04/06/2019: This project will provide valuable facilities for the local community, and help sustain the future of Bath City FC. 04/06/2019
Clive Alexander 21 Montague Road, Saltford, Bristol, Bath And North East Somerset, BS31 3LA S 04/06/2019: Fully support the application as presented 04/06/2019
Craig Lewis 74 Bradley Road , Trowbridge , Wiltshire , BA14 0RA S 04/06/2019: This would be great for
The club and all in twerton
04/06/2019
Darren Rabbitts 27 Cranmore Avenue, Keynsham, Bristol, Bath And North East Somerset, BS31 2DL S 04/06/2019: I think this can only be good for the area of Twerton High Street and at the same time give Bath City FC a home they need and provide much needed extra housing and business units 04/06/2019
Simon Cuthbert 24 Millmead Road, Twerton, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 3JW S 04/06/2019: I support the application as a successful and well-resourced football club will be of benefit to the Twerton area. 04/06/2019
Philip Gunning 11 Ivy Place, Southdown, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 1AR S 04/06/2019: I believe this may be the one and only opportunity to improve the area in and around Twerton Park not just for the football club but equally for the residents and businesses locally. I don't see anything negative about the whole scheme and therefore ask you to support this application. 04/06/2019
Allison Tees 101 Kelston View, Whiteway, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 1NS O 04/06/2019: I totally and utterly disagree with this application. We dont need anymore student accommodation. Twerton has an oversubscribed population as it is. The bus service is stretched as it is by putting even more people in such a small space is a recipe for disaster. The height of the new accommodation will block residents daylight. 04/06/2019
John Carey 14 Lyme Gardens, Newbridge, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA1 3LW S 04/06/2019: As a local resident I fully support the planned development of Twerton Park. It will provide much-needed improvements to the High Street and the football ground, thus raising the general attractiveness and vibrancy of the Twerton neighbourhood. By providing a new 3G pitch, a gymnasium and high quality community function rooms it will enhance the ammenity value of the football club to the potential benefit of all local residents. The influx of new residents will also add to the vibrancy of the neighbourhood and improve the economics of local businesses including pubs and shops. In a free market, any increased demand in public transport should be met with increased supply, as long as the associated licenses/permissions are granted by BANES council in good time. Efficient public transport in the area should encourage students to abide by their rental agreements and leave their cars at home. 04/06/2019
Will Taylod 44 Lockingwell Road, Keynsham, Bristol, Bath And North East Somerset, BS31 2HN S 04/06/2019: Looks class boys uppa bath x 04/06/2019
Paul Davis 78 Falcon Drive, Patchway, Bristol, BS34 5RA S 04/06/2019: Bath City and the community will benefit in the long term. Long overdue! 04/06/2019
Ollie Alderton 5, 3rd Avenue, Oldfield Park, BA2 3DZ, S 04/06/2019: All looks good to me. 04/06/2019
Michael Jemmett 18 Barton Hill, Shaftesbury, SP7 8DQ S 04/06/2019: The Proposed development would give a real boost to the economy and enable a seemingly rundown area to become revitalised.The football club will be able to continue its invaluable community work and give the city of Bath facilities in which to enjoy the game of football. 04/06/2019
Andrew Jubb 16 Breachwood View, Odd Down, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 2TX S 04/06/2019: I support this exciting application as I believe Twerton Park needs renovating to place the club on a financially sustainable footing. Bath City Football Club is a community asset which serves people from Bath like no other sporting outfit.

Furthermore, I anticipate that the development will have a positive effect on the Twerton area, improving facilities and opportunities for the community. The dated aesthetics of the High Street will be updated which in turn will benefit this particularly impoverished and heretofore neglected area of the city.

The sooner the development gets underway, the sooner we can all enjoy the rich rewards.
04/06/2019
Dan 10 Kirlegate, Meare, BA6 9TA S 04/06/2019: This will greatly benefit Twerton Park and the surrounding area of Twerton in general, fully supported. 04/06/2019
Stephen Loader 32 Delius Drive, Tonbridge, Kent, TN10 4DW S 04/06/2019: This is a development that will revitalise the Twerton area bringing in much needed jobs and investment. As a former resident of Weston and a long term fan of Bath City FC, I would like to see this development go ahead for both a deprived area of Bath and to bring more people to the club. It would be good if Bath had 2 nationally known and well supported sports clubs rather than just Bath Rugby. 04/06/2019
Ashley Davis 1 Springfield Heights, Clandown, Radstock, Bath And North East Somerset, BA3 3BD S 04/06/2019: Much needed development to the area, looks great. 04/06/2019
Mark Grimes 15 The Daglands, Camerton, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 0PR S 04/06/2019: I support the application 04/06/2019
Nick Francis 3 Prospect Place, Bear Flat, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 4QP S 04/06/2019: I support the application as, not only will the development benefit the Club, but also the surrounding area and community 04/06/2019
R Gale 100 Freeview Road, Twerton, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 1DZ O 05/06/2019: the student housing will cause much more traffic congestion in addition to the current overload.not only cars but the profusion of buses on a very narrow high st. that was originally designed for horse and cart and tractor. 05/06/2019
Steven Shanley 110B High Street, Twerton, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 1DB O 03/06/2019: I currently occupy one of the flats above the shops on the high street, and have done for 7 years this year. I'll be moved temporarily from my home to God nos where, and might not be allowed back once building is complete. The student flats is a very bad idea due to lack of natural light for the houses opposite of the football club and for the flats. 03/06/2019

Adam Boswell Flat 4, 119 High Street, Twerton, Bath, BA2 1DA, S 04/06/2019: Improvement to a area that needs it and will help the community will also help take the football team to the next level 04/06/2019
G Mitchell 32 High Street, Twerton, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 1DB O Documents Tab 19/06/2019
Thomas Phillips 88 Freeview Road, Twerton, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 1DZ R 03/06/2019: I support the redevelopment of Twerton park, I specially like the design of the new parade, shop fronts and football stand/3g pitch but I think the accommodation needs to be reassessed, the building height and the amount of apartments will the area that there is allocated in my own opinion will not be a good enough standard of living and will impact strongly the local community with no extra parking that will only struggle as a result. 03/06/2019
D Norris 86 Freeview Road, Twerton, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 1DZ S 04/07/2019: I think that bath city fc needs updating and for the shops to be done up to is a bonus as i hope the shops wont stay vacant and that it will bring trade to twerton...im slightly concerned about the parking issue...if there is to be very little car parking space at bath city fc for the football fans or people using the enlarged function rooms or the shops the streets in the area are going to become very congested and could cause accidents or cars to be damaged when parked to close together or by cars driving passed with little room to spare. 04/07/2019
Dan Shreeve 2 Frankcom House, Forester Road, Bathwick, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 6RA S 04/06/2019: An excellent planned development that will revitalise a community club and bring investment to the area. 04/06/2019
Marcus Coyle 2 Bloomfield Crescent, Bloomfield, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 2BE S 04/06/2019: Great regeneration project for Twerton and the wider community 04/06/2019
Ben Hatton 36 Blackmore Drive, Twerton, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 1JN S 04/06/2019: This will benefit the Twerton community and provide more reasons to come to the area and spend valuable time and money. The application will provide the club with a sustainable income to prevent them going bust as well. 04/06/2019
Adrian Heal 4 Rose Cottages, Rectory Lane, Timsbury, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 0LA S 04/06/2019: The planned proposals are supported not only for the football club but for Twerton and are long overdue. This is the dawn of a new era, no matter in what league our football team plays. This planned transformation of Twerton Park is looked upon by the older fans, such as myself, and the singing younger ones, with hope and pride in the future of our city. 04/06/2019
D Banks 16 East Close, Whiteway, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 1QD S 04/06/2019: Keeping the Club alive for the long term in a sustainable way
Ensuring the team continues to play at Twerton Park where it's been for over 80 years
The development will have a major positive impact in an area that desperately needs investment
Consolidating the Club and its family of charity and youth groups at the stadium will help achieve even greater impacts on public health and sports participation
04/06/2019
James Alan Barnes The Meadows, 29 Hill View, Farrington Gurney, Bristol, BS39 6UJ, S 04/06/2019: It will provide a more secure future for Bath City football club and, at the same time, bring welcome social and recreational facilities to the local community. 04/06/2019

Darryl Swain P G L Liddington, King Edwards Place, Foxhill, Swindon, SN4 0DZ S 04/06/2019: I have been to Twerton Park and the surrounding area numerous times. If this proposal goes through, the value of the immediate area around Twerton Park will increase massively. The area has needed renovating for a long time now and this renewal will help the area around the ground be a great place for all to be around. 04/06/2019
Richard Gregory 24 Long Barnaby, Welton, Midsomer Norton, Radstock, Bath And North East Somerset, BA3 2TZ S 04/06/2019: i support the application. 04/06/2019
Peter McCormack 23 Granville Close, Duffield, Belper, Derbyshire, DE56 4FY S 04/06/2019: I was born in Bath and still have family in the City. I regularly attend games at Twerton Park. This proposal will transform Twerton High Street for the better with a community hub and new investment in the Football Club to secure its future. 04/06/2019
Elliot Buckley 9 Holland Street , Weston Super Mare , BS23 2UP S 04/06/2019: I believe it’s a real positive for not only for a city as big and famous as bath to have a football club develop on and off the pitch but also for sports in the West Country. If you look at London, Manchester, the midlands for example, All big areas in the country with countless huge football teams and a new ground for bath would really push them up the ranks and spire a good feeling not only around the club and fans but the city too. For me it’s a win win situation and should be approved at all costs! 04/06/2019
Neil Clews 10 Argyle Terrace, Twerton, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 3DB S 04/06/2019: I support the football club and development for the betterment of the club and local community alike. 04/06/2019
Ian Willcox 15 Brook Road, CM16 7BT S 04/06/2019: I support this forward-thinking plan. Besides which should Bristol Rovers become homeless yet again... we (Gasheads) will need somewhere to play. And we like Twerton. 04/06/2019
Joy Luxford 4 Poolemead Road, Whiteway, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 1QW S 04/06/2019: As a Twerton resident and football supporter, I fully support this application which will bring much needed redevelopment and revitalisation to this area of Bath. Twerton has been under invested in for years and this proposed application will bring major positive impact to the area. The investment in the ground will provide a much needed sustainable future for the club - ensuring that football is played at Twerton Park for years to come and that the club can continue to host and invest in local community activities - such as the blood bank, youth sports teams, community activities for the older generation. etc. 04/06/2019
Kieron Clapperton 87A Bradford Road, Combe Down, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 5BP S 04/06/2019: If Bath is seen to be a progressive city for sports, our city's football team needs a stadium we can be proud of, for too long the council has pandered to the rugby club, while the football club had been treated with contempt, its now time to get behind our football club as it continues to restore itself to the higher echelons of the non league pyramid, and hopefully into the football league 04/06/2019
Dave Atkinson 51 Frome Road, Odd Down, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 2QF S 04/06/2019: Fantastic to see this happening in the city 04/06/2019

Jerry Howse 4 Gara Close , Swindon Village , Cheltenham , GL51 9TW S 04/06/2019: These proposed developments would be of great benefit to the local community and the city itself and would attract significant investment. 04/06/2019
Steve Hacker 24 Belgrave Crescent, Walcot, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA1 5JU S 04/06/2019: The plans are a very sympathetic, worthwhile and much needed addition to the Twerton area. It will have a very positive impact on the community at large. I fully support this development. 04/06/2019

Neil Reaich Cherry Cottage, Lower Kingsdown Road, Horsham, SN13 8BG S 04/06/2019: This development will bring a significant improvement to the neighbourhood of Twerton, both visually and socially.It will revitalise the area and provide a great community resource that the people of Twerton deserve. 04/06/2019
Mike Warren 98 Freeview Road, Twerton, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 1DZ S 05/06/2019: A much needed redevelopment of the area, 05/06/2019
James Franklin-Adams Dog Inn, High Street, Priston, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 9EB S 05/06/2019: I support this application as it will help Bath City FC become an even better community hub. 05/06/2019
Shaun Lewis 70 Highgate, Longmead Terrace, Westmoreland, Bath, BA2 3WL, S 05/06/2019: Will make Twerton much more accessible 05/06/2019
Simon White 8 First Avenue, Oldfield Park, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 3NW S 05/06/2019: Keeping the Club you love alive for the long term in a sustainable way
Ensuring the team continues to play at Twerton Park where it's been for over 80 years
The development will have a major positive impact in an area that desperately needs investment
Consolidating the Club and its family of charity and youth groups at the stadium will help achieve even greater impacts on public health and sports participation
05/06/2019
Matthew Abreu 18 Frankland Close, Lower Weston, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA1 4EJ S 05/06/2019: The area of Twerton is in need of a development, this redevelopment is a positive to the community as it will allow the club to host and provide more sporting events for our youth this keeping them off the streets and out of trouble 05/06/2019
Mr Joe Scofield 67 Blackmore Drive, Twerton, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 1JW O Documents Tab 09/07/2019
Michael Clayton 18 St Mary's Close, Bathwick, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 6BR S 05/06/2019: I support this development wholeheartedly. It is vital to the future of the Football Club and will inject a massive boost of facilities and investment into a deprived area of Bath. Please consider this application favourably. Lots of people are depending on it. 05/06/2019
Robert Mould 110 Ivy Avenue, Southdown, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 1AN S 05/06/2019: I fully support the re-development plans. It will be great for the local community as well as the safeguarding the future of the football club. 05/06/2019
Sean Noad 18 Newbridge Hill, Newbridge, Bath, BA1 3PU, S 05/06/2019: This is an excellent development for both the club and the community 05/06/2019
Roger Cadogan 118 Sheridan Road, Whiteway, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 1RB S 05/06/2019: Inform the Authority that you support the application 05/06/2019
Sara Spratt 10 Springfield Place, Lansdown, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA1 5RA S 05/06/2019: The development provides a good balance. Much needed upgrading of a well used community sporting space and the provision of affordable housing. It can only serve to enhance the area and provide a positive impact on the community. 05/06/2019
Phil Bletso 24 Milsom Street , Easton , Bristol , BS5 0SS S 05/06/2019: I think that this will be a much needed boost to a dying Twerton high street. The student housing is also very important as it will free up more homes for families in Bath. 05/06/2019
Chris Church 20 Horsecombe Brow, Combe Down, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 5QY S 05/06/2019: The proposals would provide much needed regeneration to a neglected part of Bath. The development would enable the football club to become an important focus to the local and wider communities and would allow the club to significantly expand its excellent community initiatives to the benefit of many. Additionally, the proposed enhancements to the student accommodation stock would not only rejuvenate the High Street but should free up "traditional housing" to local non-student residents. The inclusion of affordable dwellings can only be applauded, with it providing another housing option for local people. Approval of the proposals would result in the single most beneficial initiative in the Twerton and surrounding areas for a generation. 05/06/2019
Stephen Hawkins 20 Meadow Park, Bathford, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA1 7PZ S 05/06/2019: Bath City is a football club I support and love and have done so for 55years plus. During that time I have seen a gradual decline in support and income that would all be changed with the approval of this scheme. Not only that, Twerton itself and the High St. have followed this same route with very little being done to improve the community.
This new development would improve the local community no end with facilities and housing that would transform the area and give Twerton a new hope and beginning. This scheme would halt the decline of both the football club and the community which can only be a good thing for the future. Please approve the development.

Alfie Mahon 2 Day Crescent, Twerton, Bath, BA2 1RY, S 05/06/2019: This needs to happen 05/06/2019
James Boxell Mountview House, Richmond Lane, Beacon Hill, Bath, BA1 5QW, S 05/06/2019: Looks like an excellent plan for rejuvenating the club and bringing investment to the local area. 05/06/2019
Mike Monelle 122 Frome Road, Odd Down, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 2PP S 05/06/2019: This development is something Twerton is going to benefit from hugely & hopefully will be the start of regenerating the larger area. 05/06/2019
Robert Appleton 52 Bradford Road, Combe Down, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 5BY S 05/06/2019: Most importantly, this development will secure the long-term future of Bath City FC, a vital sporting resource and source of entertainment for so many people local to Bath. The new pitch will provide access to sports for more people, particularly those living in the Twerton area. I don't see the student accommodation as being a problem, because of the 3-strike system which will ensure they are quiet and respectful towards the local community. Furthermore, they will not be allowed to bring cars to University, and will be providing significant investment in the local area by spending money in local businesses.

The development is crucial to the long-term future of the football club which is a pillar of the Twerton and Bath community, and it should go ahead.
05/06/2019
I R Fenton 1 Southdown Road, Southdown, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 1HJ S 05/06/2019: We need to save bath city for future generations and to provide a space that can be used by all of us, including the people of Twerton who have very little at the moment. 05/06/2019
Richard Smith 81 Forrester Green, Colerne, Wilts, SN14 8EA, S 05/06/2019: I have supported the Club for 65 years and feel this would be of great benefit for the Football Club and also a great improvement for the whole of Twerton 05/06/2019
Colin Voutt 164 Bradford Road, Combe Down, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 5BZ S 05/06/2019: The plan offers a means of maintaining a senior football club in Bath, which a city of its size deserves.

The mixture of housing including "social" offers support to the local area. The traffic situation on match days may be improved, but, certainly not made worst.

The support offered to the local area should be applauded.
05/06/2019
Mel Baird 4 Broughton Close, Walton, Nr Street, Somerset, BA16 9RS S 05/06/2019: Redevelopment much needed to revive the club ground and Twerton as a whole 05/06/2019
Ivor May 2 Howes Close, Barrs Court, BS30 8SA S 05/06/2019: This is a very creative and positive development to both maintain the viability of a long standing football club, with over a 125 year heritage, for the city together with an ambitious plan to totally refurbish and improve the quality of the high street in Twerton. Both elements of the plan will make major improvements to the local area and create a sporting facility that the community and Bath can be proud of into the future. 05/06/2019
Martyn Thacker Glencoe, Rag Hill, Shoscombe, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 8LP S 05/06/2019: I support the application. 05/06/2019
R Bevan 11 Pembroke Road, Chippenham, Wiltshire, SN15 3UE S 05/06/2019: I thoroughly support this planning application. It will revitalise a sadly neglected area of Bath, plus provide a superb sports and community hub for the people of Twerton. 05/06/2019
Cheryl Bradley 1 Springfield Heights, Clandown, Radstock, Bath And North East Somerset, BA3 3BD S 05/06/2019: As a lifelong supporter this application will give Bath City the chance to become sustainable for the future. It will also re-generate Twerton High Street and provide much needed community facilities and housing. 05/06/2019
Richard Stinchcomb 26 Wadham Grove, Emersons Green, Bristol, BS16 7DW S 05/06/2019: Fully support the planning application which will improve the amenities for the community of Twerton 05/06/2019
Eddie Golby 28 Hungerford Road, Lower Weston, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA1 3BU S 05/06/2019: I believe that this redevelopment will safeguard the future of Bath City FC, and will provide a much needed investment boost to the local area. 05/06/2019
Joel Mennie 20A Bellotts Road, Twerton, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 3RT O 05/06/2019: As curate in charge of St Michael's Church, Twerton I am concerned about the impact this development will have primarily in pushing out existing community projects and initiatives (for example as a church we already operate a community cafe with community rooms which we make available for local meetings and functions, we also provide a large auditorium to the local community for multiple usage, we complement the work of the work of the village hall in this regard). I am also concerned about the proposals to redevelop re-landscape local parks. There seems to have been a lack of consultation which has occurred in this regard. Whilst not functioning in this way and historical in nature, the local park (Innox) is actually held in trust deed with the vicar of St Michael's as chair of the trust. I have further concerns regarding traffic flow and parking. Flow is tricky enough as it is with buses and local traffic, without the added pressure of an increase, which presumably will include coaches. Parking is currently sparse and will become less available when the current car park is redeveloped. With thanks, Joel 05/06/2019
Gary Gibbs 31 Cranwells Park, Lower Weston, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA1 2YD S 05/06/2019: The football club is the heart of the community in Twerton. Student accommodation isn’t ideal but it’s the best possible alternative to make the community owned club fit for purpose for the future 05/06/2019
Derek Arthur Pratt 33 Torridge Road, Keynsham, Bristol, Bath And North East Somerset, BS31 1QH S 05/06/2019: This appears to me to be a huge opportunity to stabilise the Football Club, and give it a sound financial footing upon which
the future of the club can be ensured. Together with the vast improvements planned for Twerton itself, there seems little
but positive comment to make.
05/06/2019
Gary Forrest 62 Entry Hill Park, Combe Down, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 5ND S 05/06/2019: I believe that this proposal is very worthwhile, with benefts for both Twerton and the city community as a whole. 05/06/2019
Michael Hammond 61 Locksbrook Road, Newbridge, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA1 3ES S 05/06/2019: I'm fully supportive of this plan which is a good mix of development for a Football Club which is at the heart of it's community and the redevelopment of an area of Bath that is in need of investment. The existing facilities at BCFC are very limited and very tired. In order that that the club can enhance it's role in the community a facility which offers all year round facilities both indoor and the outdoor pitch is critical and I feel demand for use of the new facility will be considerable. 05/06/2019
Chris Bowen 9 Quebec, Twerton, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 1DN O Documents Tab 27/06/2019
Paul Evans Lansdown View, Twerton, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 1BG S 04/06/2019: Twerton high is in desperate need of a redevelopment this proposal will benefit the football club, the high Street and the city in general. My only concern is the lack of parking spaces. 04/06/2019
Oliver Holtaway 10 Lampard's Buildings, Ballance Street, Lansdown, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA1 2RW S 04/06/2019: I am supporting this redevelopment because it is absolutely vital to securing the future existence of Bath City FC, a club that has built a community over generations and become part of the social fabric of both Twerton and Bath as a whole. By clearing the club's historic debts, the redevelopment will put the club on a firm foundation to build a sustainable future. As of 2017 the club is owned and run democratically by the community, and the club's owner-members have expressed a strong desire for sustainability in its operations. Without clearing our debts we will be forced to sell the ground, putting the future of the club in doubt. I want my children and grandchildren to be able to support their local football team so I am supporting this redevelopment.

In the time that I've been following Bath City, it's been sad to see so many shops close along Twerton High Street. The development of Twerton High Street and increased footfall from the new accommodation will also provide a lift to the local economy in Twerton.

Keeping the club in Twerton will have many benefits to local people in terms of health and staying active, especially as the club plans to install an all-weather pitch that will allow it host Bath City Youth, Bath City FC Foundation teams as well as walking football etc. The club will also have a brand-new clubhouse available for community use, as well as affordable housing as part of the redevelopment.

Football clubs are important places for people to meet and come together. I have met people from all walks of life through my participation in Bath City FC, many of whom I would never have known otherwise. We are all working together as local people to take control and responsibility for a local community asset that we all love. I hope that the people of Bath will recognise this, support us and hopefully join us.

Keith Leakey 162 Park Road, Keynsham, Bristol, Bath And North East Somerset, BS31 1AY S 04/06/2019: I have followed Bath city for 50 years, lived in southdown up until i was 18 years old. This application is brilliant not only for the club but twerton itself, please dont let this golden opertunity pass you by. 04/06/2019
Neil Barton 27 Brookfield Close, Chipping Sodbury, Bristol, BS37 6PP S 04/06/2019: I fully support this application to redevelop not only Twerton Park but also an element of the surrounding area. I believe the proposed work will benefit not only Bath City Football Club but also the residents of Twerton through the improvements to the High Street and surrounding area. 04/06/2019
Sean Dudden 23 Shaws Way, Twerton, Bath, BA2 1QQ, O 04/06/2019: How on earth can you let a madman design a building that looks like Chernobyl and build it. Disgustingly ugly monstrosity like the rest of the rubbish the planners have built in Bath. Its about time you found some one with taste and flair to build some thing more in keeping with the rest of Bath. Shocked by how ugly it is. 04/06/2019
Andrew Doveton Chantry Cottage, Syde, Cheltenham , GL53 9PN S 04/06/2019: I was born in Bath, spent my first 20 years there and am hoping to return to the city in the next couple of years. I started watching Bath City FC when they were the major sporting team in the city, and I believe in can regain that status in the future. The football club is an important part of my life and though o live an hour away from Bath, I am a season ticket holder. I think that this planning opportunity is a brilliant opportunity for the club and for Twerton to get the upgrade they so desperately need. I also support student accommodation, which is better served in purpose built spaces rather than occupying what are better served as family houses. I look forward to seeing the whole area tidier and vibrant with a new spirit for the club and the High Street as a whole. 04/06/2019
Peter Weaver 23 Vivien Avenue, Midsomer Norton, Radstock, Bath And North East Somerset, BA3 2EQ S 04/06/2019: Will be great to see the redevelopment of the club and area around the high street, long overdue 04/06/2019
Mervyn Toogood 53 Redland Park, Twerton, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 1SH S 04/06/2019: What a fantastic opportunity for the football Club to move forward. And to tidy up the Twerton High Street in the plans it looks very classy. I'm very much in favour

John Sandford 43 Forester Road, Bathwick, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 6QE S 04/06/2019: The proposals will bring vitality to a sad looking high street and I like the innovative ideas for affordable housing and shared accommodation. In contrast to the rugby club expansion plans,it is a plan that will benefit the whole local community. 04/06/2019

Louie Miller 105 Purlewent Drive, Upper Weston, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA1 4BE S 04/06/2019: Excellent idea to rejuvenate community both local and city wide 04/06/2019
Michael Boniface 5 Montrose Cottages, Lower Weston, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA1 4AF S 04/06/2019: I pledge my support for this application. It would bring a great lift to the football club but also Twerton as a whole. 04/06/2019
Adam Lloyd-Smith 1 Cliffe Drive, Limpley Stoke, Bath, BA2 7FY S 04/06/2019: It's essential that Bath City FC remains playing in the city of Bath.
It's essential that the club doesn't continue to rack up debt and remains profitable.
My understanding is that this proposal will vastly improve their chances of both the above points.
It's a crying shame that a city the size and standing of Bath, has a football club this far down in the divisions of the football league. I understand that Bath is primarily a rugby city, but we should be able to support a rugby and football team and add to the sporting reputation that this nationally and internationally recognised city has.
04/06/2019
Catherine Taylor 1 Park Cottages, North End Road, Yapton, West Sussex, BN18 0DT S 04/06/2019: I support this application. I now live in West Sussex, but my family remain in Bath and I visit regularly. I worked in Twerton in the past, and know what the area is like now.

I have been a Bath City supporter for many years and I think this application will help to keep the club alive long term in a sustainable way, and to remain in Twerton where it has been for many years.

The area of Twerton desparately needs more investment, and has been the 'poor relation' of the historic city of Bath for many years. I think this application will support the local area and the people who live there, and provide investment and jobs.

The club does lots of good work with schools, charities and youth groups, and I hope that with a redeveloped stadium and surrounding area this will also help more people to get involved in sports and improve public health.

I would urge the Council to support this application. Thank you for your time.
04/06/2019
Joseph Gillings Orchard Weir, Toll Bridge Road, Lower Swainswick, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA1 7DE S 04/06/2019: This will be a great step forward for Twerton and the football club. It is vital for Bath's identity that we allow our club to grow and develop within the city and this development will bring much needed investment into the city's poorest ward. 04/06/2019
Phil Bailey Apex City Of Bath Hotel, James Street West, City Centre, Bath, BA1 2DA, S 04/06/2019: Fully supportive of the planned actions. The benefits of the redevelopment will be key for the community of Bath and surrounding areas. What has been achieved at the club in recent years is nothing but incredible. They deserve the opportunity to progress and realise the potential of Bath City FC in the local community and on the pitch.

Many thanks,
Phil

Brian May 27 Albany Road, Twerton, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 1BW S 04/06/2019: I see the development as key to the improvement of this area of Twerton. As well as providing the football club with better facilities it will present a better image of the area. The student accommodation will hopefully return currently rented houses to the private sector. If the redevelopment is successful I believe it will make the area a safer place to live owing to the increased footfall of more people living in the area and if car ownership is controlled I see no danger to safety by increased vehicle movement. 04/06/2019
Andrew Watson 1 Railway Bungalows, Single Hill, Shoscombe, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 8NA S 04/06/2019: I support this application 04/06/2019

Christopher Jordan Westerleigh Road, Combe Down, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 5JE O 04/06/2019: No more student accomodation. The City and this area has enough for these people. 04/06/2019
Luke Hartshorn 23 Cope Street, NG7 5AB, S 04/06/2019: Although i no longer live in bath i do often make the trip down to go to Twerton Park with my old Uni friends. This redevelopment of Twerton park and the adjoining area would be huge for the club and for Twerton as a whole. During my time in bath i lived in Twerton for a year, Whiteway to be specific, and i believe this work would improve the highstreet and the area around. I hope you approve this plan. 04/06/2019
John Dolman 26 Birbeck Road, Caldicot, Wales, NP26 4DX S 04/06/2019: Bath City football club has been a part or Twerton high street for a long time. This application gives Bath City fc the opportunity to grow and also to give back to the village of Twerton. The council needs to give full support to the football club, rugby club and the university of Bath. 04/06/2019
Jason Smith 27 Saunders Grove, Corsham, SN13 9XG S 08/06/2019: Great idea & development of a run down unattractive area. Looks modern & clean design with great opportunities for local businesses & would attract a lot of interest. Also be used by more people in Bath and will get bigger crowds 08/06/2019
Nick Steel 4A Sussex Place, Widcombe, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 4LA S 10/06/2019: I fully support this vital redevelopment scheme 10/06/2019
David Norris Oak House, Broadway, Chilcompton, BA3 4JW S 10/06/2019: Fantastic once in a lifetime opportunity for both Bath City FC & the local Twerton community! I fear the demise of the Football Club if the regeneration does not happen, & also the local area in general, which badly needs investment!! 10/06/2019
Arthur Chambers 18 Montrose Avenue, Bristol, BS6 6EQ S 10/06/2019: I support this application as it is important for the regeneration of Twerton 10/06/2019

Emma Lawson 39 Atkins Road, SW12 0AA S 10/06/2019: I support any application which can help keep Bath City FC in Twerton. 10/06/2019
Ralph Oswick Flat 8 Victoria Bridge Court, Victoria Bridge Road, Kingsmead, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA1 3AY S 10/06/2019: This will play a huge part in the revitalisation of this area and will keep the team and all the associated social and business advantages in Twerton. It will also create a facility that can be utilised by other creative and community organisations and foster neighbourhood pride. 10/06/2019
David Milliner 59 Third Avenue, Oldfield Park, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 3NZ S 07/06/2019: seeing most of the lower Bristol road is all ready student occupied this is not far from that plus football in Bath has not been a community base in Twerton and should be allowed to survive , Oldfield pk is all ready saturated by student proprieties and it would make sense to keep this group out on the lower Bristol road rather than fragment accommodation around the other areas 07/06/2019
Sally Haines 45 The Oval, Southdown, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 2HD S 07/06/2019: As long as the old parts of twerton wont be affected I'm well in support of the regeneration of both the football club and the high street.. 07/06/2019
Andy Skinner Flat 4 Peelers Gate, 7-9 Wayte Street , Cosham, Portsmouth, PO0 3AR S 07/06/2019: I support the application for Bath City Football Club to redevelop Twerton Park stadium and the surrounding area, with the associated benefits that the new facilities will bring to Bath in advancing as a sporting city. 07/06/2019
Jack Watson Chapel Farm, Greenditch Lane, Clapton, Bath, BA3 4GL, S 07/06/2019: I support the application 07/06/2019
Christopher Pearce 25 Combe Road, Combe Down, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 5HY S 07/06/2019: I believe this development will have a major positive impact in an area that desperately need investing.This is a great opportunity to ensure a well-loved football club can continue to play at Twerton Park for the long future in a sustainable way. Also a chance to consolidate the Club and its family of charity and youth groups at the stadium will help achieve even greater impacts on public health and sports participation. 07/06/2019
Quentin Edwards 13 Bellotts Road, Twerton, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 3RT S 07/06/2019: Twerton and the football club need this excellent development to happen which will be of significant benefit to the community and club. 07/06/2019
Owen Midha 5 Lower Oldfield Park, Oldfield Park, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 3HL S 07/06/2019: A great redevelopment for Twerton 07/06/2019
Martyn James 56 Hungerford Road, Lower Weston, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA1 3BX S 07/06/2019: The redevelopment of the football ground and the high street would be of massive benefit to the community of Twerton, providing both both financial and social benefits for the future. 07/06/2019
Tom Lewis 3 Portland Place, Lansdown, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA1 2RU S 07/06/2019: I very much support this application 07/06/2019
Kevin Harding 38 Ridge Green Close, Odd Down, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 2EG S 07/06/2019: I fully support the changes that Bath City football club and Greenacre capital plan to make at Twerton park and Twerton high street.
Having studied the plans in detail i can not see any reason why they should not be passed. As they can only improve the situation of the football club and the surrounding area.
This may also be the first time that a local institution, and housing needs, benefit from the building of student accommodation, Something that regrettably (not to my knowledge) has not been the case in the past.

07/06/2019
David Miller 7 Brook Cottages, Wells Road, Corston, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 9BA S 07/06/2019: The development will be a huge benefit to the football club and the local community it serves as well as the wider community in Bath. Better access, better facilities and employment opportunities. The development prepares the football club to achieve their ambition of moving into the Football League which itself will bring further benefits. 07/06/2019
John Higgs 120 Edgeworth Road, Southdown, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 2LU S 07/06/2019: These plans will provide outstanding facilities not only for the football club but for the wider community to use. 07/06/2019
Amy Bickley 9 Lyme Gardens, Newbridge, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA1 3LW S 07/06/2019: I support the application because I think it's important for Bath City to stay in Twerton and the whole development should be good for the area. 07/06/2019
David Parsons 166 Bloomfield Road, Bloomfield, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 2AT S 07/06/2019: This has many positive attributes for the community and is well worthy of all our support 07/06/2019
Patrick O'Leary 93 Gordon Avenue, Whitehall, Bristol, BS5 7ED S 07/06/2019: This planned redevelopment will be a good boost to the local economy both on and off matchdays 07/06/2019
Shaun Wiles Richards 71 Cotswold Road, Moorlands, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 2DL S 07/06/2019: Would be fantastic to see the development go ahead not just for the football side of things but for residents from Twerton as a whole the use of the pitch from schools around the area will be a massive plus 07/06/2019
Martin Hill 198A Stapleton Road, Easton, Bristol , BS5 0NY S 04/06/2019: I support the application as I believe it will improve sporting and non sporting facilities in the area 04/06/2019
Joel Wagstaff Shaws Way, Twerton, Bath, BA2 1QQ, S 04/06/2019: This would be very beneficial to every party 04/06/2019
Tim Dobie 1 St Andrews Rd, Old Langho, Blackburn, Lancashire, BB6 8BP S 04/06/2019: Bath City FC is vital to the local community and needs this scheme to be approved to ensure it survives beyond the 80 years it has been based at Twerton Park. It requires investment and development of new income streams for it to survive. This club deserves and urgently needs this scheme to be approved to ensure it continues as a hub to the community of Bath and Twerton. 04/06/2019
Neil Tanner 33 Poolemead Road, Whiteway, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 1QW S 04/06/2019: This planned development will improve the local amenities in Twerton and give the people of Bath a football ground it deserves 04/06/2019
Mareike Broix Trade With Europe Ltd/Fulfilment International, 10 Park Street, Bristol , BS1 5HX S 10/06/2019: Bath City FC is so important to the Twerton community and I hope they'll be able to continue the great work! 10/06/2019
Clyve Waite 13 Entry Hill, Combe Down, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 5LZ S 10/06/2019: I clearly support the redevelopment of Twerton Park and all of the additional plans in the surrounding area. The area, which I spent a lot of time growing up, has been in urgent need of development for many years, so it's definitely beneficial for Twerton, in so any ways and I am very excited to see the developments in the coming months. 10/06/2019
Brian Bowen 20 East Close, Whiteway, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 1QD O 10/06/2019: Local roads can't cope with student traffic now(buses). By increasing student numbers on this bus route its going to mean more over sized buses destroying our roads.

Building is way to high and will overshadow everything around it. Should be restricted to 3 floors maybe 4 at a push.

Won't in any way improve the areas problems but could quite easily add to them.
10/06/2019
Adam Bibgood 66 Wedmore Park, Southdown, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 1JY O 05/06/2019: I have massive concerns on the affect it will have on the residents of Twerton in regards to rehousing those who currently reside in the surrounding buildings, the lack of parking on game days, and the overpopulation of Twerton itself 05/06/2019
Peter Foster 10 Entry Rise, Combe Down, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 5LR S 05/06/2019: Concerns have been expressed regarding a partial redevelopment of the Twerton Park stadium, alongside the plans of a firm who wish to regenerate the High Street in Twerton.

Bath City FC have recognised that some of the criticism is fair and have had open times when the plans could be views. A community working group has also worked through the concerns of interested parties and their concerns have been resolved in the planning application which is very sympathetic to the surrounding area.

In an attempt to stay solvent the planning application includes a number of benefits both to the football club and to the Twerton community.

If the partial redevelopment does not happen, and the Club cannot clear its debts at Twerton Park, it is highly likely that the entire site will have to be sold and the Club will have to look for a ground elsewhere – probably outside of the city.

Bath City is an integral part of Twerton and Twerton is an integral part of Bath City.

In my opinion, for a Club founded in 1889 and resident at Twerton Park since 1909, it would be a tragedy if Bath FC was forced to move away from Twerton Park and the regeneration of Twerton High Street does not proceed.

I, therefore, fully support this planning application.
05/06/2019
Oliver Gooding 55 Martin's Croft, Colerne, SN14 8DT S 05/06/2019: This will help with the development of football in Bath. 05/06/2019
J Bailey 3 Waterfield, Purton, Swindon, SN5 3XW S 05/06/2019: I believe the regeneration of aTwerton Park and surrounding shopping area would help lift the local area for the residents whilst helping the club move forwards in sustaining its financial future. 05/06/2019
Mark Siddons 1 Gordon Road, Peasedown St. John, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 8EH S 07/06/2019: Great for Bath and the local community in Twerton 07/06/2019
Tony Stimson 3 Park Avenue, Lyncombe, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 4QD S 10/06/2019: Very solid proposal - provides community with focal point for sporting & recreational facilities. 10/06/2019
Andrea Stimson 3 Park Avenue, Lyncombe, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 4QD S 10/06/2019: Application provides very strong foundation for growth of community based football club which has positive implications for entire city. 10/06/2019
Rich George-Higgins 6 Well Lane, Newton, CH2 2HL S 10/06/2019: As a businessman who regularly visits Bath I am aware of the importance of community projects and sports teams such as Bath City FC. The "home" of a football club is as talismanic as their best and most iconic players, indeed the ground is the icon in the case of Twerton Park. Being community owned by the club's supporters makes the ground even more important as a hub and beacon for local people, it's redevelopment is both a positive move for the football club and all Bath residents, it will upgrade the match-day experience and lead to greater interest, sponsorship and investment from local businesses and companies across the UK. Providing both improved facilities and housing opportunities for local residents and businesses alike demonstrates a significant effort to recognise the need for business to balance their aspirations for growth with social value projects. Where, as in the case with Bath City FC, the business is the community the positive benefits are doubled in their benefits. This is a positive and intelligent move by the football club and one which I, and members of my business groups, wholeheartedly approve of. 10/06/2019
Alex Feilden-Cook 30 Brock Street, City Centre, Bath, BA1 2LN, S 10/06/2019: Bath City Football club is a vital part of our home city. The new ownership and management structure have done a brilliant job of rejuvenating the club and the supporters experience. The success of this planning application is vital to help the club continue to grow. The club is a real local asset. 10/06/2019
Philip Challinor The Grove, Station Road, Freshford, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 7WQ S 10/06/2019: This is a very commendable scheme and is to be applauded for the level of engagement afforded by BCFC and the developers with the local community.

It not only provides much needed socio-economic activity for the High Street, but will also build the foundations for a successful future for the Football Club.

Philip Challinor
10/06/2019
Andy Pitchford 4 Sarah Siddons Walk, The Park, Cheltenham, Gloucestershire , GL50 2LW, S 10/06/2019: This is a fantastic proposal that will secure the future of a significant Bath institution and have a major and positive impact on the locality more widely. 10/06/2019
Nick Foot 1 Bailbrook Lane, Lower Swainswick, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA1 7AH S 10/06/2019: The new development will be a very positive development for the Twerton Community as well as help to ensure the survival of Bath City FC. 10/06/2019
Dionne Pemberton 4 Warminster Road, Bathampton, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 6SH S 10/06/2019: Great project for Twerton and good to see affordable housing--though would say that the ratio of affordable to student housing should be adjusted in favor of affordable housing. 10/06/2019
Stephen Baddeley 32 Milton Avenue, Bear Flat, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 4QZ S 10/06/2019: I fully support this exciting and necessary development 10/06/2019
Vicky Guy Hare Brewery, Southway Drive, Warmley, BS30 5LW S 10/06/2019: I fully support this application. 10/06/2019
B Dix 14 Lincombe Road, Westfield, BA3 3YJ, S 10/06/2019: A fantastic opportunity for a great football club to develop and expand. This will surely help the club to become further embedded in the local community and fully support community cohesion in the future 10/06/2019
Gemma Prior-Reeves 46 Oaklands, Paulton, Bristol, Bath And North East Somerset, BS39 7RW S 10/06/2019: I support this process 10/06/2019
James Mathie 41 Auckland Road, Kingston Upon Thames , KT1 3BQ S 10/06/2019: Fully support. A development that will allow the continued progress of the club and its work in the wider community. It will also tidy up the area, and provide useful additional accommodation. 10/06/2019
Joe Edwards Prestbury Farm , GL19 3AA S 10/06/2019: Would be a great opportunity to improve an already great city 10/06/2019
Ron Stewart 29 Nightingale Way, Westfield, BA3 4NL, S 10/06/2019: This is a wonderful opportunity for the city and the Club 10/06/2019
Louise S Bloomfield Rise, Bloomfield, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 2BN S 10/06/2019: Support 10/06/2019
Adrian Landa Rotork House, Brassmill Lane, Newbridge, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA1 3JQ S 10/06/2019: The improved facilities will aid local industries. The extra affordable housing will aid the local skills pool. 10/06/2019
Bry Waterman Fuller Road, Lower Swainswick, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA1 7BB S 10/06/2019: This redevelopment will be of huge benefit to the the community, and has clearly been planned with them at the forefront of the plans. 10/06/2019
Hollie Markham Northgate House, Upper Borough Walls, City Centre, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA1 1RG S 10/06/2019: The ground is in much need to a facelift and will be an asset to the local community with the club being able to bring in bigger crowds and have a more professional ground for the fans and the team.
The local area is also in much need of some TLC so this will be a valued addition to Twerton
10/06/2019
David Cavaliero Combe Bottom Cottage, Church Hill, Freshford, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 7TX S 10/06/2019: This development will give the area a huge positive boost. There has been a lot of talk about helping the people of Twerton and the surrounding area but there has been very little real action. How can it be that lots of other areas of Bath, often the richer areas, have seen positive redevelopment projects but nothing has happened in Twerton. This is our chance to put this right. 10/06/2019
Kevin Hogg 11 Hedgehope Avenue, Rayleigh, Essex , SS6 9LS S 10/06/2019: I am on total support of this application that will help the city and the community. 10/06/2019
Tim Moss 45 St James's Parade, Bath, BA1 1UQ, S 10/06/2019: Very impressed with the proposed scheme 10/06/2019
Costin Economu 46 Lancaster Gate, London, W2 3NA S 10/06/2019: Truly in support of this project. Having visited the area on several occasions I believe this development will truly revitalize Twerton. Leaving the obvious architectural improvement aside, the project could significantly improve the local social aspect. Looking forward :-) 10/06/2019
Jerry Walsingham 12 Home Mead, Corsham, SN13 9UB S 10/06/2019: A far reaching and holistic project that will breathe new life into the Club, but more importantly, the wider community in Twerton and surrounding area. As one of the more deprived areas of Bath such regeneration is badly needed to fit with the ongoing developments closer to the City. The scheme has my full support. 10/06/2019
Sarah Stone The Willows, 99A Entry Hill, Combe Down, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 5LS S 10/06/2019: I support the application 10/06/2019
Sven Koehler Kastanienstr. 22, 63075 S 07/06/2019: ... 07/06/2019
Bob Farion 66 Islington , BA14 8QJ S 07/06/2019: I support this application 100% 07/06/2019
Ann Birtwistle Greenhill House, South Road, Timsbury, Bath, BA2 0ES, R 07/06/2019: High priority for me is adequate wheelchair accessibility in all areas and in particular suitable parking for minibus vehicles 07/06/2019
Paul Bayly 37 Pavely Close, Chippenham, SN15 2BZ S 07/06/2019: I feel that the Development or Twerton Park by Bath City football club can only be good for the area both in the way of new amminities for the local residents and visiting people either by way of the football club or anyone visiting the area. Bath City are an up and coming football club that will increase revenue for all concerned 07/06/2019
Tim Brooksbank St James House, The Square, Westmoreland, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 3BH S 07/06/2019: I think this is a great opportunity for the club and Bath. 07/06/2019
Ceri Bell Flat 4, 7 Paul Street, BS2 8HG S 07/06/2019: It will enhance the area and secure the long term future of the football club, with all its associated community work. 07/06/2019
Gebbie Jaeger Flat 1 , 3 George Street, City Centre, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA1 2EH S 07/06/2019: Huge yes! 07/06/2019
Chris Born 1 Cambridge Place, Widcombe Hill, Widcombe, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 6AB S 07/06/2019: As a supporter of Bath City FC, I fully support a redevelopment of the ground and surrounding area. It will benefit the club and its ability to attract great players, supporters and sponsors, provide new community facilities and make Twerton an even pleasanter place to live, work and shop. It will be necessary to make good arrangements to limit the impact of a large number of students, especially on parking and traffic. 07/06/2019
Chris Butt 9 Duke Street, City Centre, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 4AG S 07/06/2019: Fully support the proposal to improve Twerton, the football club and inject some real focus to this area. Long overdue. 07/06/2019
Mark Banwell 7 Hillmeadow View , Astwood Bank, Reddich , B96 6BF S 07/06/2019: I fully supported the application 07/06/2019
Christopher Cridland 18 Ayling Court , Farnham , GU9 9TF S 07/06/2019: I support this application as I feel that it will be a big benefit to Twerton and Bath as a city. 07/06/2019
Mike Bohndiek 10 Tiberius Road, BS31 2FF S 07/06/2019: Sport in Bath is critical to the social fabric and football is a key part of that. Any development here will benefit sports lovers and the community and connect the two together. I fully support it 07/06/2019
Matt Soan 32 Old England Way, Peasedown St. John, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 8TL S 07/06/2019: This a fantastic opportunity to improve Twerton high street, and secure the long term future of bath city. 07/06/2019
Mark Stevens 31 Old Mill Way , Weston Super Mare , BS24 7AS S 07/06/2019: Let’s move the area forward and regenerate the area 07/06/2019
Simon Thomas 7 Osborne Road, Newbridge, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA1 3JR S 07/06/2019: Nice to see a planed development which will have such a positive impact for the local residents, so much recent building has been mainly about student builds, and whilst this does incorporate that it is a balanced development which will boost the area significantly. Better local shops and a gym can only be a good thing in an area which has been neglected over the years compared to other suburbs of Bath.
Hope this goes ahead!
07/06/2019
Wil Prytherch 5 Midland Close, Bradford-On-Avon, BA15 1DB S 07/06/2019: I support the application 07/06/2019
Natasha Zurick 23 Penn Lea Road, Lower Weston, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA1 3RF S 07/06/2019: I support this regeneration project to invest in this part of town 07/06/2019
Gary Reeves 121 Lacock Gardens, Hilperton, BA14 7TG S 07/06/2019: I fully support the redevelopment and will give my full support to the club. 07/06/2019
Claire Edwards Shophouse Road, Twerton, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 1EB R 07/06/2019: Concerned how 365 student beds will effect parking for local residents. Even though students are asked not to bring cars they still do, as demonstrated with parking along Lower Bristol Road- Twerton Mill. These cars are identified as students due to permits in front windscreen. How will this be enforced so local residents with a family don’t struggle to park. 07/06/2019
Jason Holway 57 Cedric Road, Lower Weston, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA1 3PE S 05/06/2019: Looks like a well-thought through plan. Hopefully not too much disruption to Twerton High St, improved facilities all round and a bunch more residents. 05/06/2019
Paul Burtenshaw 3 Kensington Way , Chippenham , SN14 0UG S 05/06/2019: I support this application 05/06/2019
Mariusz Brailoiu The Paragon, Walcot, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA1 5LY S 07/06/2019: I support Bath F.C on redevelopment and hope soon we will be able to attend on the new stadium. :) 07/06/2019
Guy Jennings 230 Englishcombe Lane, Southdown, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 2ES S 07/06/2019: I support the application 07/06/2019
Andy Cross 26 Princess Gardens, Hilperton, Trowbridge, BA14 7PT S 07/06/2019: Having been born in Twerton and supported the club for nearly 40 years I fully support the clubs application. It will help to make the club self sufficient and also provide improved facilities for the residents of Twerton. 07/06/2019
Paula Barnes 26 Princess Garden, Hilperton, BA14 7PT S 07/06/2019: As a someone who has recently been converted to the Bath City FC family by my partner, a long time supporter I fully support the club's application. As a support worker I've witnessed the positive effect that the match day experience has had on some of my clients. It would be a great shame if this was to be lost due to the club folding if this application is not approved. 07/06/2019
Noel Broomfield 3 Pictor Close, Corsham, Wiltshire, SN13 9XH, S 07/06/2019: This redevelopment can only be positive for the area, bringing more opportunity to build the local community, and access to more community facilities. From the plans, there is no sign that traffic will necessarily increase, and there is more scope for the High Street to develop in a positive way. This is good for Bath and especially for the Twerton community.
07/06/2019
Anthony MacRae 48 Rock Road, BS31 1BL S 07/06/2019: The area is crying out for investment. I see this planned development creating a great community asset. Please don’t let this great club die 07/06/2019
Mr Michael Knight 32 Anson Close, Saltford , Bristol, BS31 3DY, S 07/06/2019: I have been a keen supporter of Bath City FC for 15 to 20 years and have been watching progress of the redevelopment of the ground and the surrounding area with great interest. The scheme will greatly benefit by wiping out their debt while also getting improvements to the ground and enable them to utilise the extra facilities to bring in more revenue. The overall scheme will provide a great boost to the surrounding area and bring improvements to the housing stock. With the installation of a 3G pitch it will mean that the pitch can be used by other teams, particularly local junior teams. There is some concern about the loss of parking spaces around the ground but I'm sure that this could be overcome but may require improvements to the local bus services.
Overall, therefore, I fully support the application as it will be great for the football club but will also greatly improve the local area and provide extra facilities for the general public.
07/06/2019
Andrew Terrace 9 Waldegrave Terrace, Radstock, Bath And North East Somerset, BA3 3EY S 07/06/2019: I support the application. 07/06/2019
Robbie Chant 28 Queen's Drive, Combe Down, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 5PA S 08/06/2019: Would be good for the area and make twerton nice again. 08/06/2019
John Jefferies 4 Chedworth, Kingswood, Bristol, BS15 4UE S 08/06/2019: Improve the high street, access and overall condition of the area. Should improve resources for the local community. 08/06/2019
Helen Donovan Brook Cottage, Waterhouse Lane, BA2 7JA S 08/06/2019: This development will provide jobs, homes and enhanced recreation facilities for local people. An excellent plan to improve the Club’s home and give the community an environment they can be proud of. 08/06/2019
Michael Powell Vayres Farm, Whitcombe Road, PO30 3DY S 08/06/2019: I comment as some-one who was an active supporter of Bath City as a child and continue to follow their fortunes from a distance.
The presence of a football ground is an integral part of the fabric of Twerton and the application affords an opportunity to regenerate the community facilities of Twerton as well as sustain the future of the club in its historic location.

There is unlikely to be an alternative solution to achieve these twin aims so I ask the planning authority to approve the application as submitted.
08/06/2019
Michael Hart 54 Penn Lea Road, Lower Weston, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA1 3RD S 08/06/2019: i support the application 08/06/2019
Cameron Standring 41 Lorne Road, Westmoreland, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 3BY S 08/06/2019: The redevelopment plans represent the best way forward with the site. While there are certainly concerns with regards to parking, there is also potential for economic redevelopment of the high street, and it will prevent the site from becoming 100% student accommodation under a different developer. 08/06/2019
Simon Brown 22 Southcot Place, Lyncombe, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 4PE S 08/06/2019: We wholeheartedly support the application for the improvements to Bath City Football ground and the surrounding area of Twerton 08/06/2019
Mark Andrews 2 Gladstone Place, Tyning Road, Combe Down, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 5HQ S 08/06/2019: An excellent project - really important for the football club and wider community. 08/06/2019
Phil Wright 91 Talbot Road, Brislington, Bristol, BS4 2NP S 08/06/2019: I support this application. 08/06/2019
Marcus Broix 10 Park Street, BS1 5HX S 08/06/2019: I am convinced that the redevelopment of the Bath City Football Club is not only a fantastic idea - it is one that is long overdue. It will be for the benefit of the region, its people and and it businesses, and this project has my full support.

08/06/2019
Marc Anderman 7 Lansdown Heights, Lansdown, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA1 5AE S 08/06/2019: Really positive for the local community and fans of grassroots football. So important to have a quality venue and environment to embrace the many positive benefits of football to all! 08/06/2019
Jane Hurle 154 Newbridge Road, Newbridge, Bath, BA1 3LE, S 08/06/2019: The Bath City FC site is very outdated and underfunded. It’s regeneration will bring much needed sports facilities to enable the local and wider Bath communities of all ages to access more sport and in turn improve their health, leisure time and well-being. Just as the fantastic sports facility at Odd Down has achieved. 08/06/2019
Brynley Hurle 154 Newbridge Road, Newbridge, Bath, BA1 3LE, S 08/06/2019: It’s a wonderful idea and long overdue. The new facilities will benefit the local community and allow for all age groups to train at the same venue. 08/06/2019
Chris Millward 20 Milton Avenue, Bear Flat, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 4QZ S 08/06/2019: I support this application. 08/06/2019
Kenneth John Pagett 60 Bloomfield Rise, Bloomfield, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 2BN S 10/06/2019: The development will provide a modern sports facility that will not only benefit Bath City F.C. but also the local and wider Bathcommunity as well as providing much needed affordable housing in the area. 10/06/2019
Jim Noke Mentoring Plus, York Place, London Road, Walcot, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA1 6AE S 10/06/2019: The transformation of the Twerton area is fundamental to our charity (Mentoring Plus) and the well being of the young people we support in that area. Young people who reside in that area have been held back with their sporting aspirations for far too long, which is something we see on a daily basis. The young people of Twerton deserve equal rights with those born into more affluence wards of Bath - anyone who's used the sporting facilities in any of the private schools will know that if you want to nurture and create fit, healthy sporting leaders, not having access to these resources gives you a distinct disadvantage. The inability to access these facilities is morally unfair, and based on a postcode lottery.
The redevelopment of Twerton Park will open a world of sporting opportunity to the community, young people especially.
From our charities perspective, we'll be able to access a year round resource, equal to the calibre already on offer in Bath. We find using sports pitches prohibitively expenses, so would benefit greatly from a partnership where affordability and community partnership were at its core. Because of this we'd be helping to improve the lives of many more young people in our community.

Janine Woodward-Grant Bath & North East Somerset Council Care Network The Woodlands Lower Bristol Road Twerton Bath BA2 9ES S 10/06/2019: We have worked with Bath City Football Club on a number of occasions and they have been incredibly supportive of our charity & the local community, however the current state of the club has limited the support they can give. We feel that developing the site will bring benefits to the wider community, enabling the club to offer more. We welcome the development keeping Bath City Football Club in Twerton, in an area which will really benefit from it's investment and keep the club near to the Carers' Centre. 10/06/2019
Matt Smith SN14 0NX S 10/06/2019: In my view just by looking at the before and after comparison is a "no brainer"

The development replaces an area that hasn't changed in my 40 years of supporting Bath City.

Not only does it provide a future proofed modern facility for the football club but is improves the local area substantially and looks like the views of Twerton residents have been fully taken on board at the various consultations.

There should be a knock on feel good factor in the area with additional footfall from the new accommodation and daily use of the stadium facilities meaning there is more scope for improved shopping and hospitality venues not just on match days but for the benefit of locals everyday.

David Trumper Bath & North East Somerset Council Care Network, The Woodlands, Lower Bristol Road, Twerton, Bath, BA2 9ES, S 10/06/2019: I would fully support this application and the opportunities it provides for an improved community resource. 10/06/2019

Paul Duffen 1 Pilgrims Way, GU5 9HR S 10/06/2019: Fabulous contribution to the regeneration of Twerton. 10/06/2019
Kartini Sutoto 6 Kensington Place, Walcot, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA1 6AW S 10/06/2019: I have been fully behind the redevelopment of Bath City FC since I first heard about it. I have only been a Bath resident for 3 years and in that time I have witnessed how crucial the football club is to the community of Bath.

It needs a revamp as the facilities are dated and we as Bath residents and businesses could all be benefiting from making this happen.
10/06/2019
Ian Cordwell Midford Road, Odd Down, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 5RQ S 10/06/2019: Its a great opportunity for the City to improve local facilities and help out the football club. 10/06/2019
Joanna Menneer Spirit Photographic, Old Methodist Church, High Street, Twerton, Bath, BA2 1BZ, S 10/06/2019: Twerton is great need of redevelopment. We have been investing in our business in the High St for the past 12 years and welcome the planned development for Bath City. 10/06/2019
Claire Sidebottom 2 Biss Meadow, Trowbridge, Wiltshire, BA14 9SA S 10/06/2019: I feel the redevelopment of Bath City FC will give security to crucial sports participation facilities to the local community and beyond as well as the club itself.
The redevelopment of Twerton will give the community high street a new lease of life and encourage the community to engage and support in its future moving forward.
10/06/2019
Russ Read-Barrow 15 Apsley Road, Newbridge, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA1 3LP S 10/06/2019: We fully support this plan. We are a family living locally and - from our perspective - regeneration of the stadium is exactly what the area needs. Bath deserves a football club to be proud of and this is a key step in ensuring it has one for the long term, and that it gives something back to the area. 10/06/2019
Greg Sharp 14 Widcombe Crescent, Widcombe, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 6AH S 10/06/2019: The project should bring huge benefit to the community and a wide range of partners who will be able to make positive use of the infrastructure developed, contributing to a vast number of community initiatives. 10/06/2019
Barrie Taphouse 42 Saxon Way, Bradley Stoke, Bristol, BS32 9AS S 10/06/2019: I am a Bathonian and a City supporter for all of my 72 years and strongly believe that the redevelopment will be good for both the football club and the residents and visitors to Twerton 10/06/2019
Paul Smith 17 Poolemead Road, Whiteway, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 1QW S 03/06/2019: This needs to happen as the whole area is slowly becoming a no go area after dark. Extra housing will help the small shops stay open and hopefully with none empty. 03/06/2019
Lee Archer 49 Haycombe Drive, Southdown, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 1PG O 03/06/2019: The amount of student accommodation is a joke. All thats going to happen is that the students will bring cars which will clog up parking or use public transport which will put further pressure on the services.

Twerton needs more offerable social housing. The open market properties will be quickly snapped up by by greedy landlords then let to students anyway.

Build acommendaion for students near the university.

While the high street needs a face lift this is not answer. Think of local people and but them first not the students
03/06/2019
Kay Skipp 7 Clyde Gardens, Twerton, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 1DG O 04/06/2019: Parking is a major concern. Already match days result in overcrowding in our cul de sac with no access left for hone owners or emergency vehicles.
This issue will only get worse with the additional student accommodation and lack of car parking for football club.
There was mention y counsellors previously of signs to say residents parking only but this has not been mentioned in any plans.
04/06/2019
N J Parker 11 Ladd Close, Kingswood, BS15 9LG S 05/06/2019: Much needed to improve the ground 05/06/2019
Roger Hurley 22 The Green, Calne, SN11 8DJ S 05/06/2019: Twerton seems to have been a deprived area for ever. This application would re-develop the whole area, provide extra housing, smarten the whole street. It would provide an area which could be used by the whole community and, really important, would keep Bath City alive for the long term. 05/06/2019
Paul Butterton 17 Avon Park, Newbridge, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA1 3JP S 05/06/2019: Please approve 05/06/2019
Steve Isaac 9 Devonshire Road, Bathampton, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 6UB S 05/06/2019: I think this will be a really beneficial development for the club and the local community and local economy, I fully support it. 05/06/2019
Keith Nowell Stevanlea, Parc Y Plas, Aberporth, Ceredigion, SA43 2BJ S 05/06/2019: I was born and bred in Bath. Supported City for 60+ years and although I now live some way away I travel when ever I can to games (Home and Away). Twerton Park and the High Street have needed redevelopment for so many years that this is an opportunity that cannot be missed. 05/06/2019
Simon Hill 11 Windrush Close, Whiteway, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 1PL S 05/06/2019: I support this 05/06/2019
Rob Shepheard 5 Fulney Close, Trowbridge, BA14 7LF S 05/06/2019: This application represents a wonderful opportunity to provide excellent facilities for Bath City FC and the local residents of Twerton as well as the community throughout Bath.
I understand that it would not involve public monies as it is fully privately funded, so would not divert desperately needed money from the council
Also, this is probably the last chance for the football club to create a sustainable future as it would probably have to sell the land and move out of the area if the proposals are rejected. A scenario which has ultimately caused numerous football clubs to fold in recent years, including locally Trowbridge Town.
05/06/2019
James Oliver Yew Tree Cottage, Whatley, BA11 3LA S 05/06/2019: The plans look great. These improvements are long overdue and will bring the whole area a big lift. 05/06/2019

Mark Stenton 62 Timor Road, Westbury , BA13 2GA S 05/06/2019: Bath City is a wonderful part of Twerton and Bath community and these developments are a much needed progression for the football club and it’s community. 05/06/2019
Harry Fuller 9 Clydesdale Road, Box, SN13 8EN S 05/06/2019: A much needed overhaul for a run down ground and with it the opportunity to have an overwhelmingly positive to the community. 05/06/2019
Mrs V Caren 4 Arundel Road, Walcot, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA1 6EF S 05/06/2019: I believe the regeneration of this neglected area is vital to community morale and identity.

It is also vital that Bath City Football club is supported for its future survival - new facilities will provide a positive hub for the people of Twerton and supporters.
05/06/2019
Freddie Knowlton Flat 1 , 1 - 2 St Michael's Place, City Centre, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA1 1SG S 05/06/2019: I fully support the redevelopment to Bath City Football Club 05/06/2019

Paul Matthews Southdown Road, Southdown, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 1HJ S 05/06/2019: I think this application should go through, this area in particular needs urgent redevelopment and should not be contested. 05/06/2019

L Bingham 28 School Lane, Staverton , Trowbridge , BA14 6NZ S 05/06/2019: Bath City Football Club is an important asset to Twerton and the wider city. This development will secure the club’s long term future while at the same time providing Twerton with much improved facilities for the community as a whole. 05/06/2019
Simon Diegutid 10 Chelwood Drive, Odd Down, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 2PR S 05/06/2019: I think this would be very good for Twerton and Bath City football club 05/06/2019
Jessica Berryman 69 Freeview Road, Twerton, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 1DT O 05/06/2019: Not enough parking space. There are a few shops included in the planning; where will the shoppers park? I think it needs to be scaled down a bit because the impact on the roads in Twerton will be very high.
But however, I do think it needs to be developed, just maybe not as extreme.
05/06/2019

Jesse Redman 96 Lymore Avenue, Twerton, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 1AY S 05/06/2019: I fully support this development, which is much needed and will be of great benefit to the local area, the local people and the football club. 05/06/2019
Jordon Thomas Hodge 25 Cameley Green, Twerton, Bath, BA2 1SA, S 05/06/2019: I think this is a great idea to not just regenerate the high street but Twerton in general. The high street is very outdated and run down and leaves a bad impression when you first enter Twerton. I think the gym would be a great addition to Twerton and would help combat the growing challenges of obesity. The opportunity to have 12 affordable house built in one of the poorest areas in bath would be an opportunity stupid to miss out on. I think it's a great idea to have more students in Twerton as it would bring an income in to the club. There is lack of commercial spaces in Twerton and I feel like if there was access to coffee shops etc it would remove the need to travel to town which would reduce carbon emmision in accordance to the proposed clean air zone. 05/06/2019

Ronald Best 7A Hanover Street, Walcot, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA1 6PP S 05/06/2019: I am in favour of the proposal application to develop the site of
Bath City FC. I support the team and the stadium and surrounding areas could do with being developed.
We however need to make sure that there a significant amount of social housing is going to be built on the site.
05/06/2019
Susan Jemmett 18 Barton Hill, Shaftesbury, SP7 S 05/06/2019: A wonderful opportunity to revitalise a Twerton,provide a range of facilities , gain community spirit,give Bath an opportunity to have a great football stadium for its team,accommodate students in purpose built rooms ...all provided by private enterprise!! 05/06/2019
Keith Knight 23 Felix Avenue, Luton, LU2 7LE S 05/06/2019: As a Bath City FC supporter and a regular visitor to Twerton Park, this redevelopment is necessary to secure the future of the club, which has been a vital part of Twerton for over a century. The plans are well thought through and will not only benefit the club but also the surrounding neighbourhood. 05/06/2019
Martin Haig 55 Westbury View, Peasedown St. John, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 8TZ S 05/06/2019: Will be great for the club and the community 05/06/2019

S Lyon 27 Wheelers Road, Midsomer Norton, Radstock, Bath And North East Somerset, BA3 2BX S 05/06/2019: Can only improve the area, hopefully help free up family homes in the area whilst providing purpose built student accommodation. 05/06/2019
Steven Toogood 4 Archer Avenue, Corsham, Wiltshire , SN13 0BX S 05/06/2019: Twerton really needs this investment. For a long time it has been a dull, unenthusiastic place which is physically in decline. I love the fact that students aren't allowed to bring cars. There is a clear policy on this and I think it will be well managed. Without Bath City FC there is also not a lot going for Twerton. This scheme rejuvenates Twerton but also breathes new life and attention back into Bath City FC. It seems in keeping with current archietrcute of its type, like that on the Lower Bristol Road at Twerton Mill and makes the area look a lot more modern and desirable. Road access would not be a concern for me. Fewer parking spaces will ensure people use public transport more and this is something to be encouraged. Really exciting scheme. 05/06/2019
Jan Robinson 35 Lansdown View, Twerton, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 1BQ S 05/06/2019: Not only will this development up grade the football ground which it has been in need of for some years, the subsiquant up grading of the high street area of Twerton will give new life to the area and a more positive feel to what was once a lovely community 05/06/2019
James Rollo 69 Southfield Road, Nailsea, Bristol, BS48 1SE S 05/06/2019: This is real opportunity for the community in Twerton to become apart of Bath City and utilise the amazing facilities. This could be a real hub of the community that invests in health and well-being for community. 05/06/2019
Mark Fletcher 1 Brunel Mews, Box, SN13 8DP S 05/06/2019: Great for the community and the football club 05/06/2019
Kaleigh Pentecost-White 28 Pennard Green, Twerton, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 1SE S 05/06/2019: The high street is in desperate need of renovation and to gain something which will bring new life to the crumbling high street.
My only concern with this is that the buildings will be too high for the area.
05/06/2019
Tony Dennis Flat 4 , 94 Sydney Place, Bathwick, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 6NE S 05/06/2019: Real opportunity for transformational change for the club and area. 05/06/2019
Keith Archer 30 Cambridge Road, Girton, Cambridge, CB3 0PJ S 05/06/2019: I believe investment in the Twerton area is long overdue. The football club does vital work in the community, supporting vulnerable people and improving inclusion. This development will create an excellent resource for community use, helping to sustain healthy lifestyles and supporting local business. 05/06/2019
Dr John Potjewyd 51 Loxton Drive, Twerton, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 1BR O 05/06/2019: There are far too many HMOs (legal and illegal) in Twerton. This affects parking, enjoyment of our own property, and community spirit. The 356 beds of student accommodation is vastly in excess of expectations and exceeds the allowed number of students in one area as specified by the Council as in the Supplementary Planning Document (SPD) on HMOs in Bath. Whilst this is a new build and is not a HMO, there are limits as to how many students can be housed in Twerton's already saturated district.

There is a substantial need for more social housing in Twerton. BANES Council reports 1245 homes built in 2017. Only 192 are affordable. Yet there remain 4,551 waiting on the HomeSearch register. Young people have told me that they wish they could afford a place of their own, but that rents in Bath are much to high, they want to live close to family, but are then forced to move away from family and Bath to afford to rent a (usually) shared flat - or they move in with their parents. There are several homes near me with a Mother and one or two children, their partners, and then the grandchildren.

I understand that BCFC cannot afford to proceed with the redevelopment unless student accommodation is allowed. However, the nuisance caused by the hundreds of students already living in the area do cause disruption to local community enjoyment of our own homes. For one example (there are more), I have had to call in a complaint to Curo when students held a party next to my Curo property and on top of my shed in the middle of the night. I evidenced drinking and loud foul language. In addition, they were jumping on top of the electrical substation next to my shed. I had to warn the electric company about the Health & Safety danger.

The local playground next to my home is the scene of regular student parties. The play items have been burned. The fence has been knocked down two times. There is now a steel-framed fence in place.

Then there is the resultant rubbish which is not deposited in the local Council rubbish bins when these parties are over. The Curo tenants and the private tenants end up clearing it away because neither Curo nor the Council maintain the grounds in a timely manner. Nor do students have respect for community cleanliness and the environment.

Neighbours have told me of their difficulty in locating a parking space near to their home. Students do take cars with them to Bath and leave them parked in resident parking spaces for months at a time without moving them. There is no policing of student tenancies that stipulate that students are not to take a car with them.

The fact that central government no longer reimburses the Council for revenue lost by students not paying Council Tax worsens the problem of grounds maintenance, Street clearing, and rubbish collection. There are 88,000 full time residents in Bath with some 26,000 students. I also oppose the fact that I am paying Council Tax for students who reside in Bath. About ¼ of my charges are to cover this loss in Council Tax. The government does not reimburse the Council for this loss. The residents – all 88,000 of us – are expected to pick up the bill for almost 26,000 students (as most if not all live in Bath). If the Council collected D band Tax (£1,697.41) at 4 students per home for 6,500 homes the income would exceed £11,000,000! (That’s £1,697.41 x 6,500 , or £11,033,165 and this is the minimum amount. It would be higher with less than 4 students per HMO). I estimate the number of homes by dividing the population of BANES (188,678 in 2017) by the average number of people per home in England (2.4): 78,615 homes. The homes pay £140 extra Council Tax because the students do not pay for Council services.

I reject the entire proposal. I have already sent my recommendations to the developers: a lick of paint, buy some more grass seed, and hope that the BCFC survives. I despair that all this development will take place and then the BCFC falls into receivership, with buildings left vacant to be, no doubt, converted into yet more student housing.

Michael Rawlings 6 Stonehouse Close, Combe Down, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 5DP S 05/06/2019: Regeneration of the high street whilst clearing the football clubs debt to ensure a future presence seems like a win win situation. 05/06/2019
Daniel Missen-Phillips 206 Woodrow Road , Melksham , Wiltshire , SN12 7RD S 05/06/2019: Born and bread in Bath now living in Melksham, Bath needs this football club, as the club and Twerton Park holds so many memories of mine and many others I'm sure 05/06/2019

Ryan Brunt 6 Granville Terrace, Granville Road, Lansdown, Bath, BA1 9DP, S 05/06/2019: The perfect addition to get Bath sport on the map. It will also vastly improve Twerton as a place and if there were student accommodation, it would bring jobs and improve the local economy! It would also let the football club be taken to the next level. 05/06/2019
Deborah Clayton 18 St Mary's Close, Bathwick, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 6BR S 05/06/2019: I support this application and believe it to be an important step to revitalise Twerton and Bath City FC. 05/06/2019
Christopher Adkin Ayton, Rannoch Road, Crowborough, TN6 1RB S 05/06/2019: Lived in bath for 3 years, Twerton’s centre hasn’t even been anything nice visiting, except Bath City, the whole area is due a revamp/ as does Twerton Park, which will lead to more customers in shops, more footfall and more supporters for the club! Although I live far away from Bath City FC, I do visit regularly and more often than not I am able to watch a Football game! 05/06/2019
Gary Watkins 41 Church Lane, Garforth, LS25 1NW S 05/06/2019: I fully support the application and welcome this much needed development that the community very much needs and deserves as it will bring opportunities to many and allow the area to thrive and offers many chances for growth and development 05/06/2019
Katy Hancock 8 Rosslyn Road, Newbridge, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA1 3LH O 05/06/2019: The Policy CP6 – the scheme does not reinforce and contribute to specific local context, and fails to create a safe, inspiring, attractive place. This is largely due to its massing which creates monolithic buildings which are out of character to the local domestic scale, fine grained townscape. This is particularly true at the Newbridge Road elevations. Towards the more industrial rear of the site, there is more capacity for buildings of bulk. Therefore quantum of development is unacceptable.
Policy D1 – General Urban Design Principles: the development fails to:
Look varied, safe or attractive
Enrich the character of Newbridge or contribute positively to local character and history
Respond positively to local topography or townscape context
D2 – Local Character and Distinctiveness; by way of scale and massing of the double depth frontage buildings, the scheme constitutes overdevelopment and harms local character.
D3- Urban Fabric: fails to be of an appropriate grain, reflecting local character by way if its massing and overdevelopment.
D4 – Streets and Spaces: the provision of the cycle path is NOT a benefit to be weighed against harm in the planning judgement as it’s a road to nowhere, as it depends on B&NES to deliver the rest of the path. The only way the cycle path can be a meaningful benefit is if the S106 includes a requirement that the applicant must deliver the rest of the cycle path at their own cost….otherwise it is meaningless.
Policy HE1 – the area contains many non-designated heritage assets, namely attractive Victiorian and Edwardian villas, and rows of older terraces. The scheme will sit incongruously amongst this attractive mixed townscape, its massing and depth out of context and alien.
CP9 Affordable Housing – the lack of affordable housing is contrary to this policy…..the developer cites viability reasons for the lack of affordable housing, yet invariably developers ‘idea of what constitutes acceptable profit is excessive (check the viability report).
CP10 – Housing Mix – the scheme fails to propose a proper mix of housing to meet the needs of the local and wider community. 1 and 2 bed rented flats does not produce long-term housing in a mix of sizes and therefore is contrary to this policy. No doubt rental flats will not all be leased out and may become holiday lets or more student accommodation.
B1 setting of conservation area and non-designated heritage assets; the scheme fails to maintain or enhance the local character and distinctiveness that forms the setting of the conservation area (site is not in a CA but in the setting).
BD1 – Bath Design Policy – the proposed height and scale fails to respect and respond to local character. Use of bronze cladding fails to respond to and actually jars with local palette
Policy SB15 – does it respect and conform to the site specific policy?
80-100 dwellings which should boost supply of standard market and affordable housing – no!
Facades and roofs to integrate with surrounding context – No!
Be of a comfortable scale to assimilate locally – not achieved!
Question the need for more PBSA (Purpose Built Student Accommodation) given what which has already been approved in Bath (Student Castle, Lower Bristol Rd (Pickfords), Bath Cricket Club, Green Park, Brougham Hayes, Twerton Mills , Twerton Bakery site etc) – need to look at accommodation versus need figures…..many PBSA are not full and renting out rooms to visitors and holiday makers (e,g Green Park and Student Castle).
Emerging Local Plan policies to 2036 will look to restrict approval of new PBSA schemes to uni campuses only, showing the lack of appetite for more PBSA in the city centre. These developers look to be trying to get this through quickly before the new Core Strategy is adopted which will include this restrictive policy relating to PBSA’s.

Marcus Chapman Pinesgate, Lower Bristol Road, Westmoreland, Bath, , S 05/06/2019: Great design and development. Will improve Twerton and be mire desirable place. 05/06/2019

Luke Owen 15 Palairet Close, Bradford On Avon, BA15 1US S 05/06/2019: Fantastic plans, great idea. Will be great for the area 05/06/2019
William Marshall 13C Court Road, Bristol, BS15 9QB S 05/06/2019: Support the scheme. It is a great way to regenerate the area , produce a decent stadium, provide jobs and provide student accommodation in a way that mat take the students out of property that should be family homes. 05/06/2019
Alan Finney 19 Tamarisk Gardens, Bitterne Park, Southampton, SO18 4RA S 05/06/2019: I believe that approving this application will help to ensure the long term survival of Bath City Football Club, a valuable community asset of Bath and North East Somerset. The football club is treasured by many that live in Bath and North East Somerset, as well as bringing in visitors from outside the area (including myself on a regular basis). I believe that the development will also enhance the Twerton area. 05/06/2019
Bill Horton 20 Spencer's Orchard, Bradford On Avon, BA15 1TJ S 05/06/2019: I totally support this Planning Application, which is in the best interests of Bath City F.C. and the whole of the Twerton Community. This opportunity is the only real chance for the football club to survive and develop and bring on board not only just the supporters, but to create real opportunities for all members of the local community to use the facilities available within the new proposed developments. 05/06/2019
Malcolm Mitchell 56 The Moorings, Sydney Wharf, Bathwick, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 4AZ S 05/06/2019: Support application 05/06/2019
Tim Hawkins Flat 11 Inchalloch, Snow Hill, Walcot, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA1 6DN S 04/06/2019: To help secure the future of the football ⚽️ club and to improve twerton for the better 04/06/2019
Carole Banwell Flat 2 , 3 George Street, City Centre, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA1 2EH S 04/06/2019: This is a crucial opportunity to regenerate a much-neglected and underprivileged area of our city. To transform it into a seven-day-a-week destination and destigmatise it; to create demonstrable, positive economic, community and participatory sport impact. Without it Bath City FC are almost certain to have to sell up and leave the city entirely, not only depriving Twerton of this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity but also depriving the city of the community and family bonds that going to the football together creates. 04/06/2019
Julie Colegate 65 Forest Road, Melksham, SN12 7AB S 04/06/2019: I believe the redevelopment of Twerton Park, will benefit the local community and the football club. 04/06/2019
Terry And Margaret Helps 33 Lansdown View, Twerton, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 1BQ S 04/06/2019: the football ground is looking very old and worn.also the high street needs sprucing up.this project can only make twerton a better place and bath city fc.a very good improvment for years to come 04/06/2019
Mark Bladwell 16 Williams Close, Longwell Green, BS30 9BS S 04/06/2019: The development of the facilities at Bath City is long overdue. The stand was built over 80 years ago and needs to accommodate future aspirations Also the redevelopment of the High Street will boost the area which will not happen unless private funding is involved 04/06/2019
Alaster 67 Palladian, Victoria Bridge Road, Westmoreland, Bath, BA2 3FL, S 04/06/2019: We defo need a new Fortress. 04/06/2019
Chris White 28 Pennard Green, Twerton, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 1SE S 04/06/2019: Will help twerton out as there is no money being spent on the village. So can only be a good thing. 04/06/2019
Jack Bradbury 23 High Street, Twerton, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 1DA S 04/06/2019: The proposed plan will be a great boost for local businesses and the local economy, it will help the student housing problems in Bath and generally improve the appearance of Twerton area. (After living in Bath for 3 years, Twerton seems to be the most neglected area of a beautiful city).
Only concern would be bus services to university campuses from the accommodation, make sure both universities and First bus are well informed of these changes and bus routes/timetables can be adjusted accordingly. The 5 route to the town centre will also experience greatly increased use.
04/06/2019
Darren Newell Newton Road, Twerton, Bath, BA2 1RP, O 04/06/2019: no more student accommodation enough is enough, this is why we have to pay for clean air zone because of because of the extra cars and buses on the road due to the increase of students there should be a cap, you might say they are not aloud cars there but all they do is park around the corner taking residence parking spaces 04/06/2019
Roger Gale 58 Faulkland View, Peasedown St. John, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 8TG S 04/06/2019: I grew up in Twerton many years ago & have supported Bath City ever since. Over the following years, through lack of investment, I have seen the High Street sadly decline. The local children need a facility which they can use under supervision, be it for physical activity or social groups. More people coming into the Club will also bring new life to the High Street & a boost for the new shops. After 80 years it is more important than ever to have a sustainable Community Football Club at the heart ot Twerton. These days the Council do not have the money to invest in projects like this, so let`s not miss this golden oppurtunity to give the Club & the people of Twerton a facility that will benefit in so many ways, all who wish to be part of it.
04/06/2019
Andrew Nash 31 Bloomfield Park Road, Timsbury, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 0LR S 04/06/2019: Good to see plans to develop the area, will be good to have some decent facilities at twerton park, and hopefully improve the area in general. 04/06/2019
Ron White 12 Old Fosse Road, Odd Down, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 2SW S 04/06/2019: I think it needs it to revive run down Twerton 04/06/2019
Thomas Underwood 5 Edwards Way, Hutton, Brentwood, Essex, CM13 1BT S 04/06/2019: I fully support the application and think it will make a tremendous difference to the local community and football club. 04/06/2019
Brian Watkins 36 Strother Close, YO42 2GR, S 04/06/2019: As a born & bred Bathonian but now living far away, I still support Bath City and always manage to get to get to see some matches at Twerton Park each season. This application is supported as a way of keeping the club going for the long term in a more sustainable way & ensures that the team continues to play in the same location that it has done for over 80 years. The development will have a major positive impact on the surrounding area that has lacked any meaningful development for decades. Consolidating the club & its family of charity & youth groups at the stadium will help achieve even greater impacts on public heath & sports participation. PLEASE SUPPORT THE APPLICATION - IT IS VITAL FOR THE FUTURE OF THE CLUB. 04/06/2019
Maurice Ashman 42 Burchells Green Road, BS15 1DS S 04/06/2019: I support this application 04/06/2019
Louis Mancini 10 Combe Grove, Lower Weston, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA1 3NU S 04/06/2019: The plans to redevelop Twerton Park and the Twerton high street will have a positive impact on the community of Twerton, which is in desperate need of investment. The redevelopment will allow the local community to make use of high quality sports facilities and allow more local residents to get active.

The redevelopment will also enable Bath City Football Club to survive and be sustainable. The football club needs to stay in Twerton and has already had a significant positive impact on the local community.

Consolidating the Club and its family of charity and youth groups at the stadium will help achieve even greater impacts on public health and sports participation
04/06/2019
Andy Towells 209 Charlton Park, Midsomer Norton, BA3 4BR, S 04/06/2019: Good for the football club and a positive impact for the local area 04/06/2019
Rodney Gray 32 Stanley Court, Midsomer Norton, Radstock, Bath And North East Somerset, BA3 2DU S 04/06/2019: I support this application because it proposes a much needed regeneration of the high street but also keeps the football club at Twerton Park providing excellent modern facilities for supporters, local residents and the city as a whole. 04/06/2019
Cosmo Born 1 Cambridge Place, Widcombe Hill, Widcombe, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 6AB O 04/06/2019: Odd down provides a superb playing service for all.
Football is traditionally played on grass.
Update of stadia can provide extra incentive for fans to visit on match days but 3g pitches tarnish the image of grass roots conference south semi professional football.
04/06/2019: Bath City Centre has a high volume of gymnasiums at present and the football club supports Cross fit.

Student accommodation is prevelant in Bath.

The high Street is experiencing a gradual change, so a complete overhaul is dramatic
04/06/2019
Tone Ashman 4 Redfield Grove, Midsomer Norton, Radstock, Bath And North East Somerset, BA3 2JU S 04/06/2019: It’s a must for bath city fc and surrounding area 04/06/2019
Kallum 21 Upper Court, Westfield, Radstock, Bath And North East Somerset, BA3 3BY, S 04/06/2019: I support this redevelopment. 04/06/2019
Cat Blackmore Drive, Twerton, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 1JW O 04/06/2019: Please stop approving student accommodation in this area of Bath. Whilst I, like many others, welcome students into the city, I cannot see how we can be expected to host the sheer quantity of them in the Twerton / Southdown areas. Parking is already a nightmare, and introducing this many additional students to the area is only going to make the parking issue worse (no matter how you try to 'ban' them from bringing their cars, unfortunately a vast proportion of them bring cars with them anyway). In addition to my concerns about the additional numbers of students, I have a larger worry about BANES' commitment (or lack of) to approving or encouraging affordable housing. This planning application does not intend to build enough of them, rather they seem to have settled on a number more towards the threshold of 'acceptable'. If we can open our city up to students, and I have no issue with that generally (I do wish we could build them accommodation in other areas of the city, though), then we can certainly entertain the idea of opening up our city to first time buyers. Bath's property prices are laughable, and I'm afraid that I am ashamed of our council's efforts to introduce additional affordable housing. It seems the council is leaving that job to Curo, who cannot possibly be expected to provide the number of affordable houses this city needs on their own. Twerton is a small corner of Bath, and the sheer level of traffic around the high street, especially on match days, is already out of control; not to mention that issues relating to parking on match days spread up towards Southdown. This planning application doesn't ease my worries that the additional occupants to the area will not have a huge negative impact on both the traffic congestion on the smaller roads around the football grounds, the parking issues which we are already blighted by, and the number of first time (or low income) buyers who are desperate to get onto the housing ladder in Bath. 04/06/2019
Mr P Colegate 65 Forest Road , Melksham , WSN12 7AB S 04/06/2019: I feel that the proposed re development will not only benefit the football club which I have supported for many years but will provide amenities for the local community 04/06/2019
Bill Vallis Park House, Park Gardens, Lower Weston, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA1 2XP S 05/06/2019: As well as providing the football club and its growing fanbase with a state of the art facility, this development will revitalise Twerton High Street and provide a hub for the local community to use on a regular basis. This has to be good. I have been very impressed with the depth of planning that has gone into creating the new student accommodation, with imaginative ways to mitigate any possible adverse effects in terms of impacts on parking, noise, etc. 05/06/2019
Harwed Jones The Grove, Clifton, Bristol, BS8 9BE S 05/06/2019: Great idea 05/06/2019
Trevor Wild 5 Shaftesbury Avenue, Lower Weston, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA1 3DT S 05/06/2019: I totally support this development. Please help make it happen... 05/06/2019
Ross Stearn 13 Bowden Place, BS16 6RA S 05/06/2019: A fantastic opportunity for a great local fan based club! 05/06/2019
Andrew Madgett 11 Leigh Road , Westbury, BA13 3QN S 05/06/2019: This application will benefit the community of Twerton by enhancing local facilities and housing provision. It will provide much needed student accommodation, upgraded shops and a facelift for the whole area. The modern stadium for Bath City Football Club will improve the matchday experience and the 3G pitch will be used daily by a multitude of groups in the community. Bath is a community owned club which aspires to benefit the whole of the Twerton area and I heartily endorse this application. 05/06/2019
James Allister McGregor 20 Devonshire Road, Bathampton, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 6UB S 05/06/2019: I regard this as an important element in the regeneration of the Twerton area that should be supported and facilitated by the council. 05/06/2019
Robert Parker 1 Hayden Close, Oldfield Park, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 3JU S 05/06/2019: It is important for Bath that this venture is allowed to proceed, as it will help to regenerate an area of the city that has for too long been neglected. 05/06/2019
Martyn Blacker 79 Cotswold Road, Moorlands, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 2DN S 05/06/2019: Be good for the football club & the area in general 05/06/2019
Howard Burton 13 Lansdown Crescent, Lansdown, Bath, BA1 5EX, S 05/06/2019: This is a great opportunity for a community development in Twerton that will also bring benefits to all of Bath 05/06/2019
Mike Nelson 58 Maybrick Road, Twerton, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 3PX S 05/06/2019: The proposal presents an opportunity to positively transform the centre of Twerton and provide facilities for the community. 05/06/2019
Pete Walker 48 Caledonian Road, Twerton, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 3RD S 05/06/2019: I fully support this bold application. It will have positive benefits for both the football club, a much needed community enterprise, and the local residents of Twerton through the regeneration of the high street. 05/06/2019
Richard Orford 146 Southdown Road, Southdown, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 1JL S 05/06/2019: I support this planning application.
It’s a much needed investment of the area and a Sporting venue for Bath to be proud of.
05/06/2019
Mr Robin Ziegler 12 Claremont Walk, Fairfield Park, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA1 6HB S 05/06/2019: I support the application 05/06/2019
Roger Peabody 13 Frankland Close, Lower Weston, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA1 4EJ S 05/06/2019: I support this application; I believe it will be good for the football club which is important to many people; it will help to make Twerton a more prosperous area; many people in the community of bath will benefit 05/06/2019
Michael Helliker 27 Lawns Road, Yate , BS37 5BD S 05/06/2019: This is perfect for bath city fc and surrounding area 05/06/2019
Adam Mann 68 Springfield , Hardwicke , GL2 4PX S 05/06/2019: Feel this is a very positive step that improves the whole community in Twerton. Please accept and support this movement. 05/06/2019
Paul Harding 36 Wellow Lane, Peasedown St. John, Bath, BA2 8JS, S 05/06/2019: What a great idea. Twerton has not had any major projects that add to the area for years. Students bring there money which will create jobs and better services in the area. 05/06/2019
Robert Barnes 12 Victoria House, Weston Road, Lower Weston, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA1 2XY S 04/06/2019: Will be beneficial to the local community as well as the football club. 04/06/2019
Will Airey First Floor, 1 St Mary's Buildings, Lyncombe, Bath, BA2 3AT, S 04/06/2019: This redevelopment would do wonders for the club and the surrounding community! 04/06/2019
Josh Hopkins 20 Harrow Road, Bristol S 04/06/2019: It will bring a new lease of life to the struggling Twerton high street - an important move to ensure the community thrives in the modern day 04/06/2019
Peter Ricketts 9 Sealey Close, Willington, DE65 6EP S 04/06/2019: I used to live in Bath.
I have followed Bath City for over 40 years.
Twerton Park has remained largely unchanged in that time and needs a revamp.
The proposal will allow the ground to maintain a 'classic' ground appearance.
04/06/2019
Jason Simmons 10 Bude Avenue , BS5 7PJ S 04/06/2019: Fully support application. 04/06/2019
David Francis McCouaig 41 Berkeley House, Snow Hill, Walcot, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA1 6DG S 04/06/2019: I support this application as a positive step forward for the football club and the local community 04/06/2019
Nigel Beaven 154 Purlewent Drive, Upper Weston, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA1 4BE S 04/06/2019: Fully support this development and it’s impact on local community and the whole of Bath. 04/06/2019

Richard Mackinnon 34 Dovedale, BS35 2DY S 04/06/2019: This is a once in a lifetime opportunity for Bath. 04/06/2019
Nick Cleevely 14 Highland Road, Twerton, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 1DY S 04/06/2019: Much needed investment in deprived area of Bath. Would be a great asset for the club and wider community, facilities that can be used by young and old for years to come. 04/06/2019
Andrew Fear 5 Heath Walk , Bovey Tracey , TQ13 9GD S 04/06/2019: Much needed regeneration to Twerton,it is a good around planning application with the needs of all being considered. I fully support this plan. 04/06/2019
Bernard Ollis 90 Swanson Street .erskineville, New South Wales, Australia, 2043, S 06/06/2019: i am a regular visitor to my hometown of Bath. i fully support this exciting initiative. 06/06/2019
Rachel Brooks 139 Englishcombe Lane, Southdown, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 2EL S 06/06/2019: Good luck 06/06/2019
Alistair Lord 4 Park View, Upper Bristol Road, Lower Weston, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA1 3AW S 06/06/2019: This will regenerate the area for the good for all 06/06/2019
John Piper Flat 1, 17 Royal Crescent, City Centre, Bath, BA1 2LT, S 06/06/2019: The area needs regeneration and agency to achieve it. The Football Club is a positive force in the community.
Bath may have too many students in total, but it is better to House them in custom built units than have family homes turned into houses with multiple occupancy.
06/06/2019
Michael Jones Flat 1 Ground Floor, Brompton House, St John's Road, Bathwick, Bath, BA2 6PT, S 06/06/2019: The proposal has great potential for Twerton and the local community as well as for the football club. Consideration has been given to traffic access and to longer term local development. 06/06/2019
Chris Book Shandor, Church Lane, Evercreech, Somerset, BA4 6HU S 06/06/2019: Positive due to the huge opportunity to create a renewed centre for Twerton. 06/06/2019
Stephen Parsons 125 Fairfield Park Road, Fairfield Park, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA1 6JS S 06/06/2019: I fully support the application. As well as upgrading the Football Club facilities it will provide facilities for community activities and improve the tired run down area of Twerton High St which has been neglected and allowed to fall into disrepair for far too long. 06/06/2019
Bert Turner Eleanor Close, Twerton, Bath, BA2 1RE, O 06/06/2019: There is already a parking issue in the area and this will add to it. The restriction on students having cars will not be enforceable and their visitors will be bringing more cars into the area. The high street is just not wide enough to accommodate high volumes of traffic, buses regularly block the road. Local services are already stretched and will not be able to cope with 400 new people living in the area. You are building more retails units when there is already many empty units there, some retailers moved out because of the high levels of anti-social behaviour and crime in this area, how is this being addressed. There is nothing in these plans that will benefit local residents, only students and football fans. I therefore object to these plans and believe officials need to put the welfare of Twerton residents before that of students and football fans. 06/06/2019
Simon Calvert-Jones Garden Apartment, Somerset House, 1 Church Street, Widcombe, Bath, BA2 6AZ, S 06/06/2019: The far-reaching scheme overall appears to be an exciting improvement and when completed in its entirety will uplift Twerton village and rejuvenate a rather sad run down centre. The football ground will also benefit enormously from the proposed improvements encouraging greater interest in football and possibly far greater support from the residents of Bath. 06/06/2019
Andrew Newman 10 Englishcombe Rise, Southdown, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 2RL S 06/06/2019: A great opportunity for Twerton. 06/06/2019
Kate Davison 590 Wellsway, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 2UE S 06/06/2019: I think this will be a massive economic boost to what has seemed to be a neglected area of Bath, and provide beneficial community support for young people. 06/06/2019
Leon Webb 10 Bramley Close, Peasedown St. John, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 8SJ S 06/06/2019: I support this application 06/06/2019
Bob Hudson 1 Minerva Gardens, Southdown, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 1JP S 06/06/2019: This will be a much needed investment and development for Twerton high street and the surrounding area 06/06/2019
Mornie Jones Flat 1 Ground Floor, Brompton House, St John's Road, Bathwick, Bath, BA2 6PT, S 06/06/2019: This is a positive proposal in terms of the community and will also secure the future of the football club. To reject it would be to condemn Twerton to slow decline. 06/06/2019
Stephen Kenward North House, 1 North Road, Bathwick, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 6JB S 06/06/2019: The development represents a terrific opportunity to invigorate a neglected area of the city. Local businesses and the club will be able to support and enhance the community experience for the increasing residential population in the area. Improving and updating the club facilities will add to the recent uptick in support and create an opportunity for Twerton Park to become a 21st century football and entertainment hub for our great city. 06/06/2019
Hazel Newman 49 Freeview Road, Twerton, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 1DS S 06/06/2019: Fantastic for the area 06/06/2019
Tim Jones 12 Rock Road, Trowbridge, BA14 0BS S 06/06/2019: Has to be done. Something for the community and not for the tourists. Bath needs this. 06/06/2019
John Agate 12 Silver Birch Grove, BA14 0JQ S 06/06/2019: It is important to keep Bath City at Twerton Park and for people across the city and the wider area and what a difference the redevelopment will make to the local community. 06/06/2019
Paul Hopkins 26 Lincoln Close, Keynsham, Bristol, Bath And North East Somerset, BS31 2LJ S 04/06/2019: I see no issues with this application. It benefits the area. 04/06/2019
Daniel Britten 38 Faulkland Road, Oldfield Park, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 3LT S 04/06/2019: Twerton has been under developed for decades.this will benefit the local residents and community as a whole. It will bring trade into twerton and income to the council.its a great idea especially when our local taxes wont be used. A win win for all 04/06/2019
Catherine Wilson 26 Lincoln Close, Keynsham, Bristol, Bath And North East Somerset, BS31 2LJ S 04/06/2019: I think the redevelopment plan is excellent and can only benefit Twerton and it's residents 04/06/2019
Ben Hilton 35 Apsley Road, Newbridge, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA1 3LP S 04/06/2019: I support this application as it ensures the team continues to play at Twerton Park where it's been for over 80 years, the development will have a major positive impact in an area that desperately needs investment and through consolidating the Club and its family of charity and youth groups at the stadium, will help achieve even greater impacts on public health and sports participation. 04/06/2019
Darren Haines 45 The Oval, Southdown, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 2HD S 04/06/2019: Both the football club AND the high street need this to happen.. Come on Bath city council DO THE RIGHT THING... This is NOT just a Rugby city.. football plays a big part too... 04/06/2019: Support.. 04/06/2019
Paul Newman 49 Freeview Road, Twerton, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 1DS S 04/06/2019: As a local resident and lived in Twerton all my life I think this is a fantastic opportunity for the area and football club. My only concern is parking in our street and maybe enforcing time limits on the high street as in moorland road. Hope it gets approved! 04/06/2019
Andrew Dix 1 Homefield, Timsbury, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 0LU S 04/06/2019: Fully support this application as it will enhance Twerton Park and it will allow the area to be a hub of sporting activity which is good for encouraging healthy outcomes for current and potential residents and visitors.
04/06/2019
Richard Crew 6 The Ride, Kingswood , Bristol, BS15 4SY S 04/06/2019: I think this development would benefit the local economy and enhance the look of Twerton. Having new and improved facilities locally would be a boost for the local businesses would gain trade with the extra footfall. Also the excellent community club that Bath City are would be able to thrive a better serve the people of Bath. 04/06/2019
Zack Fernandez 21 Long Valley Road, Twerton, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 1RQ S 04/06/2019: I support the application as it will significantly improve the appearance of Bath City FC and the Twerton High Street area. This leads to people placing a greater "value" on the area of Twerton - a traditionally more deprived area of Bath.

By improving the area in conjuction with Bath City FC and the Developer, I would expect a greater number of people to be attracted into the area to enjoy the Community, Leisure and Shopping Facilities. Student Accomodation (with additional residents in close proximity to the shops) means Twerton High Street will be economicially viable, in a time of significant economic challenge for small and medium sized businesses.
04/06/2019
Jamie Osborne Greenfield Road, Keynsham, Bath And North East Somerset, BS31 1FL, O 04/06/2019: I really appreciate the purposal and understand that the club's success is at the forefront but I personal think changing to an artificial 3G pitch would be a huge mistake and a complete waste of valuable money, this would also limit how far the club could go up the leagues. 04/06/2019
Shaun Gundle The Old Orchard, Manor Farm, The Barton, Norton St Philip, BA2 7NE S 04/06/2019: This development will revitalise the local area for the community, as well as the Football club

04/06/2019
Godfrey Kyte 74 Springfield Drive, Calne, SN11 0UG S 04/06/2019: When this application is approved it will enable the football club to have a sustainable future and also improve the local area which has sadly been neglected for many years.
Both club and Twerton deserve a better and brighter future.
04/06/2019
Ian Buckley 59 Freeview Road, Twerton, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 1DT S 04/06/2019: A much needed development to the area which will revitalise the community and provide some much needed investment as well as provide a football ground a city like Bath deserves. 04/06/2019
Morley Bishop 18 Bloomfield Close, Timsbury, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 0LP S 04/06/2019: This planning proposal will enable Bath City Football Club to secure a long term sustainable future at it's historic home of Twerton Park whilst at the same time help to revitalise Twerton with the redevelopment of the existing retail premises fronting on to Twerton High Street. The proposed redevelopment will also bring other benefits to local residents in the form of a new gym and coffee meeting place and some low cost housing opportunities. 04/06/2019
Adam Stansby Flat 34 The Quadrant, Barleyfields, Bristol, BS2 0NA S 04/06/2019: The plans would help revitalise Twerton high street, which has suffered from a chronic lack of investment. Furthermore, the upgrades to Twerton Park will attract more supporters, generating revenue for both the club and local businesses. This is a once in a generation opportunity for Twerton, Bath as a whole, and the wider area. 04/06/2019
Kay Toogood 53 Redland Park, Twerton, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 1SH S 04/06/2019: Good for the football Club. Twerton getting tidy at last more money for the area. 04/06/2019
Jane Watson 1 Railway Bungalows, Single Hill, Shoscombe, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 8NA S 04/06/2019: A well thought out proposal which will enhance the local area and sustain the Bath City Football Club. Please approve the application. 04/06/2019
Daniel Noad 2 Atherston North Common, BS30 8YB S 04/06/2019: Will be great for the whole of Bath and Bristol. 04/06/2019
Andrew Bean 24 Old Fosse Road, Odd Down, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 2SR S 04/06/2019: I believe this is a step forward for the football club and the community, not just in Twerton but surrounding areas also. 04/06/2019
Luke Watson 24 Audley Avenue, Lower Weston, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA1 3BL S 04/06/2019: As a Bath resident and Bath City supporter I fully support this application which is essential to the regeneration of Twerton High Street and Bath City FC. 04/06/2019
Hannah Dobie 4 Archer Avenue, Corsham, Wiltshire, SN13 0BX S 04/06/2019: This is a rare opportunity for Twerton to gain significant investment to develop the local community. Students are guaranteed to spend money and attract more investment into the community. This is also a great opportunity to put Bath City on the map, football clubs need investment to grow, just look at local rivals Forest Green Rovers and the success they have had. Investment allows the opportunity for success which in itself with breed more success and investment. These chances do not come along often and must be grabbed with both hands! 04/06/2019
Leigh Gerrard 28 Beresford Close, Saltford, Bristol, Bath And North East Somerset, BS31 3HU S 04/06/2019: This development is desperately needed for both Bath City FC and the Twerton area in general.

I've been a supporter of the club since the early 1980's and had family living in Twerton for many years so know the area well. The High Street has not received the amount of investment afforded to the rest of Bath and is very much the poor relation in the city.

The proposals will provide a much needed Community hub and regenerated parade of shops encouraging more people to come to the area, increasing footfall and enhancing local businesses.

I believe it is essential that the council supports this application to ensure that the football club remains in Twerton and the area receives the required investment.
04/06/2019
Michael Dunkerley 56 Mossley Road, Grasscroft, Oldham, OL4 4HA S 04/06/2019: Onwards and upwards! 04/06/2019
Sonja Phillips 4 How Hill, Twerton, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 1DL O 04/06/2019: Whilst I acknowledge the football club and High Street require some regeneration, the overall scheme needs to be reviewed and I object to it in its current format.

It is a fallacy that students do not bring their cars. The streets leading off the High Street are always full on match day which makes it difficult for local residents to park anywhere near their homes.

The bus service to Whiteway is already overstretched during term time, as well as being used by residents living in Whiteway many of whom are extremely vulnerable, it is used by a significant amount of people living in housing whether that's family homes or HMOs on or near the Lower Bristol Road. It also services tenants of the student blocks at The Depot, Unite Student blocks and Twerton Mill and it will also probably be used by the residents of the new properties that are currently being built at Spring Wharf and the former Bath Press which are yet to be occupied.

The Lower Bristol Road, which is the main road to and from Twerton will generate even more traffic and pollution on what is already heavily congested road if this scheme is allowed to go ahead in its current format.

Any new build should not be taller then what is already there and have a detrimental impact on surrounding properties.

One would also question that if you can build accommodation for students, then why can't we build more 1, 2 or even 3 bed flats for people that work in the area instead. These residents would then pay Council Tax which would contribute to the payment of overstretched and underfunded Council Services, surely this would be of of more benefit to the community of Bath.
04/06/2019
Roman Army Garden Flat, 9 Darlington Street, Bathwick, Bath, BA2 4EA, S 04/06/2019: I am not totally convinced about the 3G surface but, what has been proven by the last season is, how much this club means to the city. Bath Rugby have money and influence coming out of their ears.
My other concern would be additional student accommodation. Are the university dipping into their copious pockets to contribute to this venture?
Twerton does deserve redevelopment for the good of a world heritage city.
One last thing, there is a shocking lack of pasties available at the ground. UTR
04/06/2019
Ronald Davis 20 Eagle Road, Batheaston, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA1 7HL S 04/06/2019: Bath City FC is now part of the local community and redevelopment will allow this to continue in the area. There is also facilities for local football at the ground and this will be able to be continued. We need to encourage young people to participate in sport and keep it local 04/06/2019
Ross Cotterell 4 Ivy Avenue, Southdown, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 1AL S 04/06/2019: Twerton High Street need a regeneration programme and the proposed redevelopment of Twerton Park provides an opportunity to build community and sporting facilities for the residents of Bath. I fully support this application. 04/06/2019
David Merritt 19 Lynfield Park, Upper Weston, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA1 4ER S 04/06/2019: I fully support this planning application.
Twerton has been crying out for investment in its facilities for a long time. It is rare to see a development that can have such a positive impact on a community, as well as the development itself
I think aesthetically the development looks great and great thought has been given about linking up the whole High Street in Twerton with this development.
04/06/2019
Quinton Roberts 2 Sandy Lodge, Yate, Bristol, BS37 4HE S 04/06/2019: The development looks well thought out and will provide a needed boost to the high street. 04/06/2019
Kerry Austin 31 Highland Road, Twerton, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 1DY S 04/06/2019: I believe it will be a much needed face lift for Bath City Football Club and Twerton as a whole.
My only one concern would be car parking on a football match day, I know there is an overflow car park being made available but if the club is to grow as we hope then even this will not be enough.
04/06/2019
Diane Nicholls 34 West Close, Whiteway, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 1PY O 04/06/2019: Can Twerton sustain such a high level of student accommodation. There are already parking issues in and around the surrounding area. Where will match fans park Bus services are already poor . For local residents. Which university will have control over students accommodation. Will this mean bus services to Bath spa uni and Bath uii. Lansdown As these services will not benefit residents as they run term time only. Local Doctors and Dentists are they going to cope with another large influx of young people. Waiting times for appointment at the Doctors can be as long as weeks already. Noise of building works Disrupting local residents. Traffic flow through the narrow high street How are construction vehicles and building materials going to be delivered. Through the local estate?. Causing more disruption and disturbance?.. I agree the whole of the area needs regeneration. Is this the only and best scheme. So much more needs to be done to bring Twerton back to a thriving community that is wss 30or so years ago. 04/06/2019
Matthew Russell 2 Cedar Grove, Southdown, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 2HN S 04/06/2019: This part of twerton needs to be lifted out of the depressive, horrible state it has been allowed to fall into ,and feels it has be absent from invest for many years.
The whole of the ba2 postcode is slowly slipping into a sorry state.
04/06/2019
Kevin Porter 44 Bloomfield Rise, Bloomfield, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 2BL S 04/06/2019: I consider the development to be a great benefit to the area as it will not only improve the Twerton High Street environment, but will also provide facilities for local people. This is particularly relevant to youngsters as facilities will be available to allow their participation in sporting activities and encourage improvement of their skills. Additionally, the planned development will allow Bath City FC to carry on playing at a venue that has been their home for many years, and also enable them to continue and enhance their excellent work as a community club. 04/06/2019
Hayley Bond 26 Highland Road, Twerton, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 1DY S 04/06/2019: Support plans only worry is parking for that amount of accomadirions 04/06/2019
Simon Buchan 43 Freeview Road, Twerton, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 1DS O 04/06/2019: My concerns relate primarily to parking, traffic and road safety.

Major selling points of the development are to attract people and money to a newly developed area and rejuvenate a financially failing Football Club. Twerton is already a busy area during the day, with parking in the high street and on nearby residential roads in high demand. Increasing the number of flats and facilities will make the area more congested.

Twerton's roads are now very busy on match days and current plans do not demonstrate that this will be alleviated. Previous plans stated that students will not be allowed to bring cars in to Twerton, but this would seem impossible to enforce? People visiting new residents and students would bring more traffic and increase the strain on parking in the locality. The number 5 bus, servicing both Twerton and Whiteway, is also very busy.

Plans to make the area busier without the correct resources to manage parking and traffic flow could have an adverse effect, make Twerton less attractive to visitors and make it harder for residents to negotiate the streets in which they live. It could also lead to an increase in the number of traffic incidents in the area, making the village less safe.

I would like the developer to revisit plans and prove beyond doubt that these issues will be adequately addressed.

Kevin Haines 71 Sunnymead, Midsomer Norton, Radstock, Bath And North East Somerset, BA3 2SD S 04/06/2019: Support 05/06/2019: Bring Twerton into the wider Bath area, and make the residents and visitors proud to be associated with Twerton.Without the redevelopment of Bath City FC & Twerton high street this area will die..

Ashley Richards 36 Dominion Road, Twerton, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 1DW S 04/06/2019: A very much needed face lift for the village. Really don't need more students and the club needs it to stay in Twerton. 04/06/2019
Giles Carre 92 West Avenue, Oldfield Park, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 3QB S 04/06/2019: An excellent regeneration of the area which will secure the future of an iconic symbol of Bath. 04/06/2019
Matt Malyon 11 Seymour Gardens,, Ruislip, Middlesex , HA4 9QA S 04/06/2019: Twerton is an area which is in dire need of renovation and this has been the case for many years now. The redevelopment has the potential to completely rejuvenate the area as well as taking the football club to the next level. The club is vital to the local community and the planned works are desperately required. 04/06/2019
Robert Wilcox 3 Howard Walk , Bridgeyate , Bristol , BS30 5WE S 04/06/2019: A much needed development for a loved community asset Bath City are an excellent advert for Bath that bring revenue to the City. 04/06/2019
Jamie Saunders 32 Atherston, BS30 8YB S 06/06/2019: It is good 06/06/2019
John Morgan 17 Westfield Park, Newbridge, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA1 3HS S 06/06/2019: I have regularly attended matches at the stadium since moving to my first house in East Twerton, Bath in 1985. At that time the club shared the ground with Bristol Rovers for a few seasons and with the additional income that the tenants paid the general facilities of the ground were upgraded and whilst parking around the ground was sometimes at a premium on match days I didn't experience any issues with access or safety at the ground. Having considered the planning application I feel this is a positive move forward for the club and the improvements will enhance this asset in the City. 06/06/2019
Matthew Jefferies 45 Hillington Road, Sale, M33 6GQ S 06/06/2019: I grew up in Bath but no longer have the pleasure of living there. I return to the city regularly to visit relatives and to watch Bath City FC. For me, the football club is one of the city's hidden gems. As I drive south down the M6 on Saturday mornings I am aware that many more football-loving Bathonians are travelling in the opposite direction. My hope is that this development will encourage more Bathonians to support their local team, as well as encouraging many more local people to become fit and active. The decline in Twerton High Street in recent years has been deeply depressing. It was once a thriving shopping street and can be again, but that requires investment. My only worry about the scheme is the loss of car parking spaces at the football ground. I hope the club will be able to use further private car parks on match days, as it currently does with Curo on the Lower Bristol Road. I hope very much that the council will view this scheme positively and approve it for the benefit of future generations. 06/06/2019
Les Cooper 11 Woodpecker Close, Keynsham, Bath And North East Somerset, BS31 2FU, S 06/06/2019: I fully support Bath City with their application to TRANSFORM Twerton Park, and the surrounding area, including the High Street, Twerton.

The remodel of the High Street would be an improvement on the current model.
Allowing affordable housing and student accommodation to sit, side by side can only be a good thing, and very community based.

Transport infrastructure will be off little concern, as a bus service already exists, therefore any additional services should enhance an area of Bath, long forgotten.

The local economy will benefit, and the community will also gain, from the facilities proposed by Bath City, being made available to the wider community. A win win.
06/06/2019
William Binks 30 Earlshill Drive, Howwood, Johnstone, PA9 1DT S 06/06/2019: This development will boost the local economy around Twerton. It will give new life to the Bath City Football Club and hopefully increase its viability and membership. 06/06/2019
Roland Birchby Myrtle Cottage, Sharpstone Lane, Freshford, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 7UA S 06/06/2019: I would fully support this application,which not only brings with it much needed positive enhancement to that area of Twerton generally,such rejuvenation will serve to re-ignite interest in the Football Club itself,raising it's profile within Bath,contributing not only to the local economy within a somewhat deprived area,and simultaneously contributing to the health and sporting diversity within the City,where it is so often overshadowed by the success of the Rugby Club. 06/06/2019
Richard Reynolds 30 Fosseway South, Midsomer Norton, BA3 4AN, S 06/06/2019: A fantastic opportunity for the local community and Bath.
Regeneration and development a part of Bath that has been forgotten which it really deserves.
06/06/2019
Steve Ford 10 Minerva Gardens, Southdown, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 1JP O 06/06/2019: Where to start. Well certainly this area of Twerton and Twerton Park is in dire need of regeneration. However, the developers only wish to maximise their profits which means cramming in as much development as possible with little if any regard for the residents once they have moved off site onto their next lucrative contract. The proposed buildings are out of character for this area and a great concern is to see that we, Bath residents and Council Tax payers are having yet more student accommodation built in the City when our Council should be ensuring that more affordable family homes are built. If more student accommodation is required, presumably because our Universities are taking in more students then they should me made to take a responsible approach and create sufficient accommodation on campus. They should also pay the market rate for rent rather than Bath council tax payers continue to shoulder the revenue shortfall. As for car parking, does anyone honestly expect the students not to bring their vehicles? All very well saying that students will be subject to a 'three-strike process' which means that their lease will be terminated if they continue to bring a car to the premises. Of course they will bring their cars but they wont park them on the premises but in and around Twerton. Just look at the parking problems in Oldfield Park and the parking opposite Twerton Mill. Come on BATHNES, get your act together. 06/06/2019
Andrew Bodman 33 Hillcrest Drive, Southdown, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 1HD S 06/06/2019: I support this application 06/06/2019

Sharon Gillings Orchard Weir, Toll Bridge Road, Lower Swainswick, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA1 7DE S 06/06/2019: I support the development which will ensure that Bath FC has a sustainable future in the city. 06/06/2019
Andrew Osmond 46 Freeview Road, Twerton, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 1DR O 06/06/2019: I can only say that having lived in this area for over 30yrs, and have seen many changes, I feel that this developement will adversly affect the present residents of Twerton. Not only will there be a great increase in traffic in the area which will greatly affect the high volume of dis-abled and elderly that live here.
It will also increase the number of vehicles trying to park in the area, meaning that there will be more illegally parked vehicles in pavements and grassed areas causing chaos. Policing this situation would be impossible. The stress caused by this could turn to road rage and violence which we don't want. On 'match days' this can only get worse.

Also of concern is the height of the buildings near the High St.. Because of their height, the road and most probably the homes on the oppsite side of the road will not get any low winter sun. This would result in the area remaining very cold, and and would delay the melting of any ice or snow in that area causing problems to not only vehicles but the residential elderly.

There is also a concern about students coming home late at night/ early morning and causing a disturbance so close the the Quebec area which houses our elderly. This can sometimes be abusive or frightening to them.

Lastly there is also the matter of the new 'hub'. This will take much needed funds away from the present Hubs ( Rose Cottage & Millenium Hall) here in Twerton. This would also mean the loss of much loved meeting places that have supported the residents of Twerton for years ... and lead to yet more local people losing their jobs .... something Bath has lost a lot of, and can been seen all along the Lower Bristol Rd.

Neil Davies 221 Coronation Avenue, Southdown, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 2JZ S 06/06/2019: My son and I have recently started following Bath City and enjoy every minute of our attendance. The club is probably one of the most welcoming that I have experienced. I can't think of anything better for the club, the surrounding area, and the community than the redevelopment of the stadium and Twerton High St. I think the club and the people deserve it. I really hope this redevelopment gets approved. It is exciting for Twerton and indeed the whole of Bath.

Best wishes,

Neil

Dave Skinner 20 Shaws Way, Twerton, Bath, BA2 1QQ, O 06/06/2019: The development will exasperate the already choked parking situation in Twerton High Street. Accommodation should cater more for families, not Students. 06/06/2019
Simon Giles 28 Cornbrash Rise, Hilperton, Wiltshire, BA14 7TR S 06/06/2019: Having previously lived in the area and making regular visits to Twerton and the football club, I think that that this will be a great redevelopment for the community in Twerton allowing for new opportunities in the area.

Tim Ricketts 4 The Old Stackyard, Lincoln, LN1 2BW S 06/06/2019: Whilst I no longer live in Bath, my family still do, and we all have long standing connections to the Twerton area. I've supported the club all my life, and throughout my memory, it has struggled financially. This plan really does give it a chance to not just survive,but to thrive.
I've seen negative comments about the student accomodation, but this strikes me as short-sighted. The students are here already, so it's better to have them in purpose built units and that would, hopefully, free up some housing for local families.
Lets push this through and help give our wonderful city a football team to be proud of!

Oliver Haines 45 The Oval, Southdown, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 2HD S 06/06/2019: I feel this would be both good for the high street and the football club.. both are in need of a cash boost and this application would most definitely provide that.. 06/06/2019
Mr Bryant-Jefferies 10 Clift Avenue, SN15 1DA S 06/06/2019: I have been coming to bath city fc from the age of 12 years old and i am 63 now it is about time the club had a upgrade to it's facilities and the development would freshen up the high street. 06/06/2019
Mrs M Young 24A Alexandra Road, Lyncombe, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 4PW, S 06/06/2019: I support this application 06/06/2019
Tristram Gale 111 Lymore Avenue, Twerton, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 1AX S 06/06/2019: I write to give support to the above planning application. The development would support the long-term viability of the football club whilst supporting the economic development of Twerton High Street, providing investment, jobs and community space.

The proposal is in line with the local plan's commitments to corporate objectives of delivering more homes and jobs. The proposed mix includes student accommodation which supports the challenge identified in the local plan of significant student accommodation growth over the coming twenty years, and construction of purpose-built student accommodation on an existing university bus route is a way of achieving minimal disruption compared to HMO conversions that could deliver an equivalent number of bedspaces, including in terms of the reduced requirement for parking space.

The proposal would regenerate Twerton High Street whilst providing new long-term and student accommodation to drive demand that could strengthen local businesses. It would also mean that Bath Football Club could remain in Twerton, which could continue to serve as a community hub whilst drawing in visitors from the city and further afield.

Lin Patterson 10 Brookleaze Buildings, Larkhall, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA1 6RA S 06/06/2019: Visual fit
The proposed buildings fit with the general architectural style of current buildings in the area.

Character of the environment
The new layout will enhance the ambience of the High Street in Twerton, reinvigorating an area that has been fairly static, bringing it up to date. Locating a thriving, modern sports facility in Twerton will raise the profile of this part of Bath, making it a more desirable destination.

Transport issues
Consideration has been given to access and easing congestion, by prohibiting students from bringing cars. Increased bus service will undoubtedly follow, due to the increase in demand, to the advantage of all Twerton residents. This is also consistent with the council's current goals on Clean Air and lowering fossil fuel use. Marketing of games must include information about public transport and alternative parking options, as does Prior Park Gardens where parking is non-existent.

Local economy and amenities
Additional residents, match day and other sporting and entertainment events will boost the economy and add to employment in this deprived area in Bath.

Safety and public health
The educational and charitable projects and plans sponsored by the football club will help relieve some potential law and order issues of the younger generation. This is in the financial interest of the council and supports safety and amenity for residents.
A viable development will enable the football club to promote exercise, contributing to public health when the council is campaigning to address obesity.

Sustainability
The new dwellings and shops have been designed to allow the whole project to be cost effective and sustainable, counteracting the potential blight that the area may otherwise suffer.

Comment
I concede the number of student slots is high, and that they would be better placed on University grounds, freeing that accommodation for more affordable housing. However it must be the case that this was considered and found to be uneconomic for the aim of the package.

Hilary Chapman 42 Loxton Drive, Twerton, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 1BR S 06/06/2019: Today I walked along Twerton High St with a 3 year old. We had to dodge the dog poo, uneven and broken paving stones and bags of uncollected rubbish. We walked pass all the empty shops, the smashed bus shelter and the rubbish bin which was completely burnt out. It’s an absolute disgrace! If Bath City are prepared to put big money into redeveloping this area then I say “YES PLEASE” 🙏 06/06/2019
Thomas Vick 19 Worcester Close, Peasedown St. John, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 8TU S 06/06/2019: This is much needed for the football club as the ground is very run down now. This development will also contribute to the regeneration of twerton and boost the local area. 06/06/2019

We support football in Bath as paid subscribers, and attend matches whenever possible. We are both very excited by the development proposal and support it fully.

Joe Wheeler 15 Stottbury Road, BS7 9NH S 06/06/2019: I fully support the proposals to regenerate Bath City FC and the surrounding area. The plans develop a good mix of housing, retail and leisure in an area that would benefit from some investment. Good use is made of the existing car park. My only comment is that having reviewed your travel plan, of the 45 people interviewed, zero cycled to football matches. I cycle to football matches from Bristol, and the minimal amount of cycle parking at the current development is always very full, so I do not think that the 45 people questioned has accurately captured the actual modal share. Good quality bike parking for 10-20 bikes would meet demand. 06/06/2019
Hayley Jones 15 Stottbury Road, BS7 9NH S 06/06/2019: I am fully in support of this application. However, the cycling facilities should be increased. 06/06/2019

James Pullan The Tyning, Widcombe, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 6AL S 06/06/2019: This scheme will invest in Twerton and deliver hugely improved community facilities whilst also providing much needed affordable housing & student accommodation.

The redevelopment of Twerton High Street will be of huge benefit to Twerton residents. The redevelopment of Bath City Football Club will secure the financial viability of the club by creating sporting facilities that can be used by the wider community. The affordable housing is not a policy requirement and shows the genuine commitment of the club to the community.

Bath has a structural undersupply of student accommodation and this scheme will support the higher education providers in the city. Purpose Built Student Accommodation houses students who would otherwise use traditional housing stock (which is now released for non student use).

I strongly support this application

Jackie Barnard 7 Rowan Close, IG1 2NT S 08/06/2019: This will be wonderful for the people of Bath 08/06/2019
Richard Witty 11 Southdown Road, Southdown, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 1HJ S 08/06/2019: Twerton Park football stadium and the surrounding High Street area badly in need of updating. The actual football ground is becoming evermore dilapidated and within a few years I would suspect that with the lack of funds within the football club the ground (and club) will possibly be condemned. I am aware that the Lower Bristol Road area has its share of student accommodation but this application if successful may lead to more family homes becoming available for local residents rather than their being converted to HMOs. 08/06/2019
Jonathan Cope 2B George's Road, Fairfield Park, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA1 6EY S 08/06/2019: I fully support this application, which will provide facilities that will be a great boost to the people of Twerton and all people in Bath and surrounding areas that love Bath City Football Club like myself. This application must be approved as this development is absolutely essential to ensure the survival of Bath City Football Club.
Many people of all ages will be able to use the first class facilities that are planned. This is a community owned club who already carry out great work in the community to make people happy and improve their well being.
The proposed Student accommodation is only way to fund this development and continue the excellent work.

Jon Hamp 8 Mount Road, Southdown, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 1LD S 08/06/2019: Full support. BCFC is a force for social regeneration and community cohesion. 08/06/2019
Steve Skinner 12 Napier Road, Upper Weston, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA1 4LN S 08/06/2019: The High Street area is in urgent need of regeneration and this scheme, which will include public realm works, can be a massive step forward in this respect. Having more people in the area will be a boost for the local economy.
There are very positive aspects to the community element of the scheme which will provide direct benefit to the area. The football club is now community based and the improved facilities they get from this scheme will enable them to forge closer community links. The new 3G pitch can be used by the clubs Community Foundation to offer a whole range of sporting, recreational and lifestyle activities to all ages within the local community. This will present attractive options that currently do not exist for those living in the area.
I support this scheme as I see many positive aspects that can benefit an area which is badly in need of a boost, and if it is not supported then I am concerned that a downward spiral and further decline will set in which will be very difficult to reverse.

Ian Hatton 29 Montague Road, BS31 3LA S 08/06/2019: The application will provide a massive boost to the local area and economy in what is, at present, a part of Bath that has been neglected for too long. The regeneration of the football ground will of course be a massive benefit for the football club itself, but also for the whole Twerton community and for Bath residents beyond. By having a pitch that is available for use to all will foster a healthier lifestyle for those who want to use it to play on a more regular basis than they do now. It will also consolidate the football club's position within the locale which is where it belongs. 08/06/2019

Marc John Thomas 21 Hungerford Road, Lower Weston, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA1 3BU S 08/06/2019: I am supporting the application as I think that Bath City Football Club - since their community ownership - have done much to support the local community of Twerton. With the 3G pitch available for local clubs; the community space for use by local groups and the social housing, this work can be continued. Also, the redevelopment of the stand will provide a much improved match day experience for the supporters. The redevelopment of the parade of shops will do much to improve the appearance and atmosphere in Twerton High Street. 08/06/2019

Peter Johnson The Old Post Office, Church Road, West Peckham, Maidstone, ME18 5JL S 06/06/2019: I have known Twerton village for more than 60 years, my family having lived there for much longer, and it has always been a poor relation to the rest of the fine City of Bath. There have been piecemeal attempts to improve the High Street over many decades, but they have been largely unsuccessful (or worse). This application represents a bold attempt to rectify the failures of the post-war years in that it will bring a new and enhanced centre to the village, improving the appearance of the High Street, attracting new residents to the area and, crucially, securing the future of Twerton Park football ground. That in itself justifies this application, for rejection of the application will inevitably lead to the demise in due course of Bath City Football Club, loss of current and to-be-enhanced leisure and community facilities, and the likely default option of Tweron Park's replacement with further unattractive development on a very large scale. Both with a view to securing part of the City of Bath's sporting inheritance, and meeting the future needs of its residents (both permanent and transient), this application has very much to recommend it, and I support it wholeheartedly. 06/06/2019

Jonny Butt 22 Oakhampton Road, NW7 1NH S 09/06/2019: This will be of great benefit to the local community and provide an accessible and modern hub for people to connect. The new student housing is also crucial in a place where student accommodation is already stretched. 09/06/2019

Sam Knight 23 Felix Avenue, Luton, LU2 7LE S 09/06/2019: I support the application as this development will bring great benefit to the area. It will help to revitalise the surrounding area and provide more footfall to Twerton. It will also help Bath City FC to progress as a club by providing better facilities to the club. If the club can progress, then so can the area. 09/06/2019

Karen Wilkinson 31 Cranwells Park, Lower Weston, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA1 2YD S 09/06/2019: The development safeguards the future of the community owned and run football club, helps to regenerate the area for residents and provides low cost housing. 09/06/2019
Chris Coles The Old Vicarage, 65 Prior Park Road, Widcombe, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 4NL S 09/06/2019: I fully support this application as I believe it will bring much needed investment and new community facilities into the local area. I also believe that BCFC will most likely have to leave the area if the application is not approved and this would create both significant uncertainty and be a major missed opportunity for the local area. I am not aware of any other plans to invest on this scale if this project does not proceed. 09/06/2019

William Heath St Lawrence, Lansdown Road, Lansdown, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA1 5TD S 09/06/2019: This feels like a cornerstone in the regeneration of Twerton which is Bath's most underinvested ward. The high street and the club desperately need redevelopment. It's a huge achievement to bring together a scheme that works for the club, the high street and also for investors. I've been really impressed about how Bath City FC has approached consultation on this matter (quite unlike Bath Rugby) - they really want community engagement. It may be the case that further improvement to the proposals are possible (I cant think what they might be) but I really think this is a case where the planners need to work with all parties to make this work without obstruction or delay. 09/06/2019
Christopher Ellicott 20 Burleigh Gardens, Lower Weston, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA1 3RR S 09/06/2019: I fully support the proposal which will be good not only for Bath City but also the area of Twerton and its residents. It is long overdue. 09/06/2019
Michael Gillingham Kensington Farm, Fishpool Hill, Bristol, BS10 6SW S 09/06/2019: This application will be of great benefit toTwerton and the Bath City football club. It will enhance the whole look of Twerton. Twerton is in need of modernisation. 09/06/2019
Diana Lanham The Old Vicarage, 65 Prior Park Road, Widcombe, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 4NL S 09/06/2019: I support it 09/06/2019
Thomas Davies Flat 47, The Old Mill, Edward Steet, BA13 3DL S 09/06/2019: It will improve the commercial desirability of the area. 09/06/2019
Georgina Maguire 12 Highland Road, Twerton, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 1DY O 09/06/2019: I strongly object to this proposal as I do not think the nearby surrounding area has the infrastructure to support a further large new development. This includes having insufficient parking available, inadequate shops and facilities for the large student population, and inadequate greenery for a city which is supposed to be supporting environmental causes and helping to improve the air quality in the inner city.

I rely on on street parking which is already very limited. We are able to tolerate the current parking situation as the football club only adds strain to parking constraints when their are large numbers of spectators at occasional football games. The development of accommodation would make parking far more difficult, disable the current residents of houses nearby, and reduce the attractiveness of the area.

I feel very strongly that congestion and pollution would be a big problem for this development and is something that needs to be addressed.
09/06/2019
Edward Feil 4 Mount Road, Southdown, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 1LD S 09/06/2019: This is a fantastic proposal that will greatly benefit the local people of Twerton and the City in general. It will also place Bath City FC on a much more secure footing moving forward with untold benefits for the local community. Up the Romans! 04/07/2019: I have been a reg at Twerton Park since shortly after I moved to the area 10 years ago. Following the club has been pivotal in my personal integration into the community and provided a great deal of pleasure (and pain!) over the years. It is clear that although community ownership has reinvigorated the club many challenges remain. It is critical for the future of the club that this proposal is approved. Thus would place the club on a much more secure footing and would be of huge benefit to the Twerton community as well as the broader fan-base. 04/07/2019
Tim Harris Orchard House, Prospect Road, Widcombe, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 6AY S 09/06/2019: I am writing to support the proposal. Improvements to the football ground will be much appreciated by followers of the club. The additional accommodation and general improvement of the area will enhance Twerton 09/06/2019
Michael Fitzer 1320 East Washington Street, 2nd Floor, 40206 S 09/06/2019: I support the application for a variety of reasons, the first being that Twerton is the historic home to a historic club and part of Bath's unique identity. This, in and of itself, is worthy of moving forward. On a more practical level I know that when visiting the ground the need for improvement is evident if growth of the club in the community and positive economic impact on the city. I've met some who don't even know how to park or enter at the ground. This is a problem. Facility improvements will only help to provide better space for fans to enjoy on match days and beyond. 09/06/2019
Billy Clark 22 Palmers Close, BS30 7SD S 09/06/2019: The development will improve the local area and be of benefit to the local communities as well as the football club. 09/06/2019
Mark Steel Mail Boxes Etc, 3 Edgar Buildings, City Centre, Bath, BA1 2FJ, S 09/06/2019: Support, yes please, very worthy cause for Bath (from a Bathonian with continuous Bath heritage since 18th century! :-)) 09/06/2019
Barbara Borup 6 Kipling Avenue, Bear Flat, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 4RB S 09/06/2019: I want to register my support for this application. We are big fans of Bath City and think this development would be great for the City of Bath and fantastic for the community of Twerton. 09/06/2019
Jacob Derisz 504 Wilmslow Road, Withington, M20 4BT S 09/06/2019: I support the redevelopment & want it to go for register. 09/06/2019
Matthew Phillips 12 Highland Road, Twerton, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 1DY O 09/06/2019: We rely on on-street car parking spaces to park our car, and these are already very limited on our road.

On match days we often have to park several streets away, as spectators park on our road and others roads close-by.

The roads in the area surrounding the proposed development are narrow, and we believe that the influx of residents brought about by this development will exacerbate the existing parking problem, and increase congestion.

There is already a large residential development off lower bristol road, and we are concerned that this will add further congestion.
09/06/2019
Clive Staines 147 Wells Road, Lyncombe, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 3AL S 09/06/2019: The current BCFC ground and, in particular, the buildings on the High Street look tatty and run down. The proposal seems to give an opportunity to vastly improve them both whilst also bringing more business to the local shops. The football club facilities will be more open for local community use. Ideally the redevelopment could be done without the need for student accommodation but it seems that this is a necessary evil in order to enable the other parts of the proposal. 09/06/2019
Debbie Clifton 90 Newton Road, Twerton, Bath, BA2 1RP, S 09/06/2019: I understand the reason why student accommodation has to be included even thought i would like more affordable rent for local people. Twerton needs redevelopment so the people have something to be proud of - hoping the cost will not be too much for local people to enjoy. 09/06/2019

Peter Nobes Netherby, Devonshire Place, Bear Flat, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 4SW S 05/06/2019: This is a great opportunity to significantly improve the amenity of the local community and to build sustainability into the football club which does so much good work within BANES. 05/06/2019
Russell Lewin 8 Springfield Close, Twerton, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 1EJ S 05/06/2019: I fully support the proposed redevelopment. It will greatly enhance the appearance of Twerton High Street; it will allow the football club to stay in Twerton and survive, due to the extra revenue generated by the 3G pitch and the accommodation; it will provide jobs, and it will help Twerton become a more attractive and prosperous place. 05/06/2019
Joe Yallop 7 Allen House, Arthur Milton Street, Bristol, BS7 9EY S 05/06/2019: I support the project 05/06/2019
Paul Roder 14 The Linleys, Lower Weston, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA1 2XE S 05/06/2019: I support this application as it represents a great opportunity to improve the appearance and amenities on Twerton High Street, provide a range of accommodation and help secure the long term future of Bath City FC and enable it to become even more embedded in the community. 05/06/2019
Anthony Phillips Baker's Lane, Chilcompton, Radstock, BA3 4EW S 05/06/2019: This would not only benefit the Club but also the surrounding area.
It would give Twerton some much needed regeneration.

Martin Green 79 Hurn Lane, Keynsham, Bristol, Bath And North East Somerset, BS31 1QY S 05/06/2019: Sounds like a great development opportunity 05/06/2019
Neil Sellick 7 Vale View, Radstock, Bath And North East Somerset, BA3 3QD S 05/06/2019: I have been a supporter of the Football Club for over 50 years, but it is particularly relevant that in recent years the Football Club have made a considerable beneficial impact on the local community in particular local schools, youth clubs, charity groups and general work with community residents. The Football Club desperately needs this investment not just to sustain its' present level of community involvement but to ensure this can grow still further. The local area also needs this investment so as to provide additional physical resources and opportunities beyond football and general sporting activities. 05/06/2019
Lee Lodder 7 Arundel Walk, Keynsham, Bristol, Bath And North East Somerset, BS31 2JT S 05/06/2019: I fully support this application, which would, if approved, bring much needed economic regeneration to the area, and help to secure the long term future of Bath City Football Club at Twerton Park. 05/06/2019
B K Woolley 36 Poplar Close, Moorlands, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 2HY S 05/06/2019: There is a clear need for investment in the infrastructure around Twerton High Street with a current downward trend in local facilities - shops closing and increasing anti-social behaviour. National supermarket chains have moved into, and then out of Twerton, showing that relying on the natural economy to create a resurgence in Twerton’s fortunes is not, and will not work. I believe that the plans submitted in this application will go a long way towards creating the vibrancy and economy required to reverse this trend and create a High Street that will attract further private investment and benefit both the local and wider community. Local high streets can survive and prosper in the ‘supermarket’ driven economy with Moorland Road being a prime example, and the additional community benefits provided by the football club’s proposals is something to be applauded. There will always be an element of negativity around such schemes but I believe that, in this case, any negative elements are far outweighed by the positives and, as such, I give this application my full support. 05/06/2019
Jon Phillips 76 Blackmore Drive, Twerton, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 1JN S 05/06/2019: I support this application 05/06/2019
Phillip Richards 31 Hillcrest Drive, Southdown, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 1HD S 05/06/2019: This planning application needs to go ahead fro 2 main reasons,First it will help with the develop of the high street in Twerton shopping mainly as there is very little there now, Second it would help the football club to survive as it has been apart of Bath for a very long time and needs to continue.
A passing comment would be about the concerns on parking, At the moment there are very few cars that park in the club car park so with all the streets in the surrounding area within walking distance as well as a good bus route i see no more parking problems than there are now.
05/06/2019
Philip Hesketh 17 Longfellow Avenue, Bear Flat, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 4SJ S 05/06/2019: The plan will provide much needed accommodation in the area and provide assets of significant benefit for the local community, and the community of Bath City Football Club supporters. The appearance of this part of Bath will be enhanced. 05/06/2019
Jon Bickley 9 Lyme Gardens, Newbridge, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA1 3LW S 05/06/2019: I believe this planning application should be approved to secure Bath City FC's future in Twerton where it provides a focal point for people across the city to gather for affordable recreation and community. This development will also have a big impact on public health and sports participation with the 3G pitch creating a base for the club's charity and youth arms to extend their activities, as well as allowing charities and schools to use the facility. And the High Street and student accommodation developments should also be seen as a massive economic shot in the arm for Twerton that will help revive the presence of shops, bars and cafes as well as employment. The council and the whole city should embrace this amazing chance to preserve a vital part of Bath's social fabric and to reinvigorate the area. 05/06/2019
Sally Harris First Floor Flat, 76 Great Pulteney Street, Bathwick, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 4DL S 05/06/2019: I believe this development will have a positive impact on Twerton and its residents and provide a much-needed injection of new life and energy. It will revitalise the high street and bring more people from the city into the area, particularly to use the 3G pitch and Club facilities. It could help to bridge the gap between Twerton and the city of Bath.
I think that Bath City FC, now community-owned, is well on its way to delivering fantastic community-focused schemes and initiatives, and that allowing it to stay at its home ground in Twerton makes absolute sense. The Club has been a part of the city for generations and sits right at the heart of Twerton, but without this redevelopment that community asset could be lost.
It will be wonderful to see small businesses, charities and community groups using the new facilities and turning Twerton into a thriving hub of activity.

Christopher Coles 7 Blagdon Park, Whiteway, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 1PQ S 07/06/2019: I support this application because Twerton High street is clearly in need of a rejuvenation and this is it. Bath City Football club is something Twerton and Bath should be proud of and if Bath City FC can become a stronger football club whilst Twerton High Street receives improvements then that’s brilliant. As for the student numbers, students are a fantastic asset to a local area, especially when discussing spending on high streets and in the local area. The bus to the university already runs through this area and the other is a 2 minute walk away so no issues there. This could and should be fantastic for Twerton. 07/06/2019
Stuart Clear 37 Longfellow Avenue, Bear Flat, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 4SJ S 07/06/2019: I am in support of this application because it will allow the club to survive in a sustainable way, ensuring the team continues to play at Twerton Park where it’s been for over 80 years. The development will have a major positive impact in an area that desperately needs investment and consolidates the Club and its family of charity and youth groups helping to achieve even greater impacts on public health and sports participation 07/06/2019

Inga Harris 5 Princes Street, City Centre, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA1 1HL S 07/06/2019: This project is vital for both Bath City and the local community of Twerton - an area of Bath which has been neglected and which needs investment. The plan would mean Twerton Park being `fit for purpose', ensuring that Bath City can remain part of the identity of a particular place. Moreover, it would provide residents and visitors alike with a resource for a range of activities, benefiting the local community and linking it more with the rest of Bath. 07/06/2019
Simon Marchant 113 Hansford Square, Combe Down, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 5LL S 07/06/2019: As a resident of Bath all my life, more than 60 years I believe the development will not only give the football club the lifeline it so richly deserved but will give one of the most deprived areas of our city a major boost, and be a tremendous asset to the local community. 07/06/2019
James Clark 2 The Maltings, Midford Hill, Hinton Charterhouse, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 7DE S 07/06/2019: The redevelopment of Twerton Park, as per the application above, is a must for both community and club. The plans are exceptional, and the positive impact of redevelopment will create short and long term benefits for the people of Twerton and the city of Bath as a whole. I fully support this application and very much hope it suceeds. 07/06/2019
Jonathan Burnstone 12 Home Barns , Marshfield , SN14 8JN S 07/06/2019: Bath desperately needs a sustainable football club in Community ownership and the new Community facilities are an added bonus. With a much-needed economic boost for Twerton, everybody wins from this re-development. 07/06/2019
Bob Denning 24 Blackberry Way, Midsomer Norton, Radstock, Bath And North East Somerset, BA3 2RN S 07/06/2019: This presents a wonderful opportunity for the football club, for Twerton, for the World Heritage City of Bath and for the profile of the area nationally. So many people will benefit from this exciting development. At a time when communities are often in disarray , when physical and mental health issues are putting our services into crisis, this will provide
much needed and readily accessible facilities. A city the size and stature of Bath needs and deserves a football Club and facilities like this for which everyone, and particularly Twerton, will be proud. This must be supported or the opportunity will be lost forever.

Dick Hemming 26 Shophouse Road, Twerton, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 1EB S 04/07/2019: The Twerton Park site and adjacent part of the High Street are in need of improvement, and the proposed scheme provides that. I understand concerns about the height of some of the buildings, but this seems the best way to finance the project and keep Bath City FC viable. 04/07/2019
Bath Preservation Trust Bath Preservation Trust , 1 Royal Crescent, City Centre, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA1 2LR O 04/07/2019: Bath Preservation Trust fully supports the principle of redevelopment in this location that will provide a mix of uses and retains Bath City Football club on its historic site. Appropriate redevelopment has a huge potential to bring public benefit and regenerate and integrate the site with the local area and enhance this part of Twerton. If well designed this development has potential to create a better place for people to live, work and play in the heart of Twerton. However, we feel that much more could be done to reduce the impact of the PBSA element of this scheme and enhance the overall quality of Twerton and reinforce its sense of place.

In summary the Bath Preservation Trust regrets that we would be unable to support the proposal in its current form for the following reasons:
- There is too much PBSA.
- There is an under provision of affordable housing.
- The height of the buildings at 6 and 7 stories is too high and height and bulk would harm the character of this part of the conservation area.
We encourage the applicants to make changes to this application in response to the following grounds for objection.

1. Student housing

Placemaking Plan policy SB14 identifies significant scope for residential uses on the site. This scheme includes a large amount of student housing and the Trust urges the Council to rigorously test the case made in the viability assessment which is the justification for the amount student accommodation. The applicant should be required to show irrefutable evidence that other uses and types of residential use have been considered and tested and why such uses, together with less student accommodation does not meet the required viability level.
The emerging West of England Joint Spatial and Bath Local Plans both require that an additional 300 homes are found in Bath, through windfall sites and intensification of existing allocated sites, such as Twerton Park. Any additional capacity achieved through intensification of development on this site should therefore be devoted to helping Bath reach this new target and should not be used for student housing.
We believe that this site should provide a much greater amount of mixed tenure housing, including private and social rented, and keyworker housing to meet local need.
We have concerns whether the claimed public benefits brought by proposed student housing are deliverable and guaranteed in reality.
We are pleased to see that our suggestion to show future adaptability of the student housing has been included.
There has been an under provision of affordable housing – 15 units (30%) would be required as a minimum rather than 12 as proposed.
The Trust therefore objects to the amount of student housing, the application does not include any evidence that this would not prejudice the achievement of the aims of policies DW.1 (District-wide spatial strategy) and B1 (Bath Spatial Strategy).

2. Impact on the character of the conservation area and setting of listed buildings

While we recognise that there are some lower than average buildings on High Street that might benefit from being raised to 2-3 storeys, buildings at 6-7 storeys remain out of keeping with the domestic traditional village townscape which is 2-3 storeys in character. Buildings of the height and bulk proposed would have a discordant relationship with the surrounding townscape character. The proposed heights and massing would be over dominant in the local townscape and would harm local townscape views.
Development of this height and massing would also have an overbearing impact on the setting of Grade II listed Rose Cottage.
We have concerns about the approach to design and materiality which is commercial and industrial in nature, and we would call for a response that respects the village character of Twerton, for example locally sourced traditional materials that are referred to in the Twerton Conservation Area Character Assessment include
The proposal is therefore contrary to the requirements of PMP policies BD1 (Bath design policy), DW1 (6) (cultural and heritage assets), D1 (general urban design principles)(c) and (d) and Policies D2 (local character and distinctiveness) and D3 (urban fabric) as well as HE1 (historic environment).
Impact on setting and Universal Value of World Heritage Site
The City of Bath World Heritage Site Setting SPD (2013) Chapter 5, states that one of the important characteristics of the WHS setting are “The views afforded from the city to the green hillsides, woodland and open spaces and conversely the opportunities provided by the surroundings to view the city and its surrounding landscape.”
The LVIA seeks to demonstrate that the impact of development at the height proposed, on long distance and medium distance views from the surrounding viewpoints looking into the city would not significantly harm the Outstanding Universal Value or setting of the World Heritage Site. While this may be the case, we are concerned that the height, bulk and massing is at odds with the surrounding townscape character and would not fit with the architectural and townscape homogeneity of Bath.

Other design considerations

We have concerns about the elevation of the rear of the PBSA block facing the car park. We believe that this elevation, the ground floor use, and the car park should have a part to play in creating a safe and attractive amenity for all users of this space. We would encourage the ground floor facing the car park to have an active frontage that is well lit and accessible. On non-match days this elevation, and ground floor uses could complement a market on the car park.
We think that the corner treatment could reference the characteristics of many corners in Bath, and have some architectural interest that draws pedestrians around, rather than a sharp right angle and this needs more thought.

In conclusion

In our view the degree of harm is, to use the language of the National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF), less than substantial. However, the NPPF is quite clear that less than substantial harm does not necessarily equate to an acceptable proposal. Paragraph 200 reads “When considering the impact of a proposed development on the significance of a designated heritage asset (conservation area and WHS), great weight should be given to the asset’s conservation (and the more important the asset, the greater the weight should be). This is irrespective of whether any potential harm amounts to substantial harm, total loss or less than substantial harm to its significance. Bath World Heritage Site is a heritage asset of the very highest significance.
We feel that the proposal in its current form in unacceptable and there is much scope for revision and further mitigation of the potential harm to heritage assets.

Susan Cox 23 Foxcombe Road, Newbridge, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA1 3ED S 04/07/2019: I support this application as it is good for the club and will regenerate a somewhat neglected area of the city, although I would prefer more affordable homes and fewer student rooms. 04/07/2019
Joe Rayment Second Floor, 1 Weymouth Street, Walcot, Bath, BA1 6AG, S 04/07/2019: I support this application for three primary reasons:

Firstly, I think it would be a disaster for the city if Bath City FC were forced to leave Bath, as will be financially necessary if this redevelopment is not permitted.

Secondly, the economic regeneration of the declining High Street is long overdue. Business struggle to survive on the High Street, but making it a far more attractive environment will help. I understand that there are also concerns about having student flats on the site, but having these extra people will also help businesses to survive and thrive in the area - a good thing for both the local economy and for local people.

Finally, the club have shown great interest in helping the community. This is shown by their understanding of the issues of income, health and education inequality which Twerton suffers from, their desire to engage meaningfully in partnership with the third sector, and the fact that they have included affordable housing and housing for local key workers.

Twerton, and Bath as a whole, should be proud to be home to a community owned football club.

There is no status quo option, so the Council has a choice of either:
1) losing the club and all the good it does for the local community, or
2) the economic and community regeneration of the most deprived community in the authority area.

I sincerely hope it chooses the latter.

Lisa Morris 73 Cameley Green, Twerton, Bath, BA2 1SB, O 04/07/2019: We don’t want student flats in our high st
There are plenty of empty flats on the lower Bristol road for students
Why would we want more

The planning of the flats on the main road are too high and will block light for the homes oppiste
Also elderly population on Quebec’s road do not want a view of a huge building blocking there light
With a social club in their door step
This is not expectable.

Twerton needs regenerating but not to this great monstrosity

Also the traffic / busses are horrendous in the high street and I can’t see how wising the pedestrian path is going to help! This will take more space from the road casing chaos
I live in Twerton and use the high st on a daily basis.

We want to save bath city fc
But not in this way

Adam Powell 19 Magdalen Avenue, Lyncombe, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 4QB S 04/07/2019: The community benefit from this proposal is enormous and will provide new sport and cultural opportunities for young people and adults from across B&NES promoting health, wellbeing and community cohesion. I support this proposal and congratulate all those at Bath City Football Club for bringing this development initiative forwards. 04/07/2019
Mat Turner 90 Whiteway Road, Whiteway, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 2RH S 04/07/2019: I am generally in support of this application and welcome that much needed investment is being proposed for the Twerton area. I think the new stadium development is superb and hope that converting to pitch to 3G will bring in some much needed revenue for the club. It is not 100% clear from the plans how the levelling of the pitch will impact the Bath end terracing as there are some conflicting images in this part of the planning application so more clarity here would be good. On the whole investment to the area should be seen positively and welcomed. I think the community space is to be applauded and Twerton residents should be encouraged to make use of it.

In addition I would like to voice some concerns that have been raise by local residents. I think the proposed development of Twerton high street is to high and will significantly impact the current skyline massively changing the current Twerton environment.I totally understand why there is a large emphasis on student accommodation as the revenue that may generate could be very beneficial to Bath City FC. I do fear however that there may be too much emphasis on student accomodation. My biggest fear is that as so many student properties are currently being approved in Bath that some of these developments may not get filled. In addition I hope that the policing of additional cars brought in by the potential students is taken seriously as this does not appear to be being done at the current Twerton Mills student lets.

To summarize I would rather see the development downscaled slightly with more emphasis on rental properties for families rather than relying so heavily on students. However I am in support of the investment in the area for a part of Bath that has too long been neglected and in desparate need of regeneration.

Matt Hanna 60 Elmhurst Estate, Batheaston, Bath, BA1 7NX, S 04/07/2019: The proposals for Twerton Park Redevelopment feel suitable to their place and are in line with the scale of the surrounding area. The football club is a well run community led club and the existing stand is outdated and in much need of replacement. The opportunity to watch games without interrupted views would be of a huge benefit to the supporters and therefore to the team. The entrance sequence offers a great improvement over the existing stand with a clear, more defined route for supporters to enter. The mixed use development feels appropriate in size and scale and will offer benefit to the local community and those looking to move into it. Overall this feels an important project for both the area of Twerton and for the club we support. 04/07/2019
Philip Tanner 7 Freeview Road, Twerton, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 1DS R 04/07/2019: I was born in Twerton and, through choice, continue to live there.
During 50+ years I have seen the High St change and decline, failing to adapt to the changing demands of the Twerton residents. If there was an economic return from the local population using the shops we would still have a greengrocers, two bakeries, two newsagents, a garage, a butchers, a co-op and a chip shop. There isn't, so those amenities have gone. If the current residents want those things to return then things have to change.
The economic benefit to serve a student population but also from the improvements within Twerton Park will be significant; such investment whether physical or in access to facilities must have a positive return. It works elsewhere otherwise the development formula wouldn't be being used, so why can't it work in Twerton?
Residents concerns about an influx of student cars are valid, however the problems can be solved by introducing, and then effectively policing, some form of a residents parking permit; perhaps linked to those who have permanent resident address in the area and pay Council Tax (I don't know if students pay Council tax).
Bath City FC are an integral part of Twerton. Only somebody in their 90's will know what Twerton was before the club arrived and Twerton is a barely recognisable from back then. Certainly the vast majority of the population have born, moved, grown up and lived in an area where the club were present.
Those 1930 facilities are life expired and need replacing, and the club recognise that they have a role in providing modern facilities, not just for the supporters who watch the matches but also to the wider Community. How many residents have never been to a game but have still been to a wedding reception, wake - or all points inbetween - function in Charlies/Randalls and left thinking its a bit shabby and wouldn't it be better if the function room was modern and pleasant; well this, as well as the other opportunities, (3G pitch, gym, meeting spaces) is the chance to deliver that.

Margaret Coats 14 Boundary Lane North, Cuddington, Northwich, CW8 2PL S 04/07/2019: I support the application 04/07/2019
Dj Mccormick 23 Bathwick Hill, Bathwick, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 6EW S 04/07/2019: The long history and support of the club in Bath is an important commitment to honour.
Everything that can be done to bring young people together to encourage community venture and intergenerational goodwill is of huge importance.
Bath FC also allows talent to flourish and its increased success can only be good for the whole city.

Barnaby Dodwell 15 Entry Rise, Combe Down, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 5LR S 04/07/2019: Much needed redevelopment will bring long awaited and real benefit to the local area and community. This should be given wholehearted support locally and therefore the planning permission should be consented. 04/07/2019
Liam Slade 12 Queens Road, BA14 8NH S 04/07/2019: I support the application. 04/07/2019
Jerry Gill Flat 4 , 57 Cambridge Rd, Clevedon , BS21 7HE S 04/07/2019: Twerton Park will become a modern state of the art safe environment for community use. Health and well being in the area needs improvement. The facility will provide a hub for educational sessions on and off the pitch. The area needs a football club that is sustainable and that can provide a product which locals can come and watch in a comfortable facility. 04/07/2019
Jason Howard-Steele 98 High Street, Twerton, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 1DE O 04/07/2019: Though in essence a good idea I can not see beyond the issue of parking. No proposals have been made regarding this issue and as the area is already congested adding another 400 homes is tantamount to chaos. Do you really think they will not have a car? 04/07/2019
Diane Forster 91 Freeview Road, Twerton, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 1DT S 04/07/2019: It will be a good thing for Twerton village and it will bring it into a modern new world and not be left to go to rack and ruin like it is at the moment!! 04/07/2019
Sarah McCormack 23 Granville Close , Duffield , Belper , DE56 4FY S 04/07/2019: This is a good opportunity to regenerate the area and secure the future of the football club. 04/07/2019
Christina Appleton 52 Bradford Road, Combe Down, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 5BY S 04/07/2019: I think this application will enhance opportunities for people in the local area and looks like a well-designed mixed-use development. 04/07/2019
Nic Appleton 52 Bradford Road, Combe Down, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 5BY S 04/07/2019: Good development to support activities in an area where there is little community sports space. 04/07/2019
Diane Alecock 87 Newton Road, Twerton, Bath, BA2 1RP, O 04/07/2019: The plans show the height of the building would be 5 to 7 storeys high being far taller the the current building and the surrounding buildings. This is in detriment of the Conservation Area and World Heritage Site and also go against the Bath Buildings Heights Strategy.

The appearance is out of character with the surrounding Bath stone Buildings. Because of the sheer size of it, it will look out for character. What happened to building in Bath Stone? I thought this was a requirement of building in Bath.

The provision of just 52 car parking spaces is not sufficient for a stadium with a capacity of 5000 people.
The surrounding area will be badly affected on match days and other events the club intend to do. The overflow car park they intended to use has now been sold. There is also no parking provision for the students. No-cars policies history shows on student blocks is unenforceable.

The amount of student accommodation is to big at 350+ students and takes up valuable space that could provide more affordable and social housing which is badly needed in the area.

The plans have no thought for the students. Rooms will look out onto a shaded car park and rooms will be very close to a noisy stadium. With so much cramming of apartments, there will be no space to soften the look of the development.

Bath City FC intend to hire their facilities out day and night. This will cause a lot of noise nuisance and more parking issues.

The local shops will be affected by the disapperance of the students for up to 3 months of the year. How will they survive.

Twerton village was not built for the amount of traffic that is currently using it with buses arguing around the area with the dust carts etc. Our roads are already breaking down and this development would speed up the process. With local council's struggling with budgets where will the money come from to fix these problems? The buses are already struggling up the steep hills causing pollution. Our infrastructure will not cope. Buses are already full with people stranded at bus stops and an increase in buses will add to the pollution and traffic problems we already experience in Twerton.

The High Street would virtually be in shade all year and this will cause problems in the winter months as ice/snow will fail to melt making it extremely difficult for the elderly population to pass this area.

The surrounding buildings already have many of the ammenities that Bath City FC propose on the plans. This could cause community buildings to close. Bath City FC should outline exactly how their plans will enhance the vibrancy of Twerton.




04/07/2019
Wayne Mallon 87 Newton Road, Twerton, Bath, BA2 1RP, O 04/07/2019: The infrastructure in Twerton will not cope with a development of this size. The planned five to seven storey buildings would be far taller than surrounding buildings to the detriment of the Conservation Area and World Heritage.
The planned 6 to 7 storey blocks go against the Bath Building Heights Strategy.
The appearance is out of character with the surrounding Bath stone buildings and because of the sheer size will be overbearing in a village of this size.
Hundreds of students in the planned accommodation blocks would create an additional strain on an already overloaded bus service. There are times when crowded number 5 bus drives past waiting travellers. Additional buses would be required to get the students into town and to the universities. This would cause additional strain on the roads around Twerton and more pollution. With Banes struggling with the budget how would these roads get repaired.
The height of the buildings would put the High Street mostly in shade causing ice/snow to not melt as quickly. This will make it extremely difficult for the elderly population to visit this area in the winter months.
The redevelopment would cause parking problems in surrounding streets as the car park would virtually disappear. Where are Bath City FC fans and visiting fans going to park? What provisions have Bath City FC made to help? They arranged to use the Maltings on the Lower Bristol Road but this has now been sold. No parking would be provided for the 356 students or tenants of the co-living apartments or affordable flats. “No-cars” policies on student blocks have always been found to be unenforceable.
What happens when the students leave for up to 3 months in the summer. How will the proposed new local shops be affected and how will they survive?
The amount of student accommodation is not proportional and takes up space that should be developed to provide much needed affordable and social housing.

Regular renting out of the 3G pitch would cause noise nuisance and where will these people park? On the surrounding streets causing mayhem. More cars coming to Twerton will again increase air pollution.

04/07/2019
Joe Beavin Cherry Tree, Bulls Lane, Box, Corsham, Wiltshire, SN13 8JR S 04/07/2019: I wholly support the redevelopment plans; a move which will bring much needed investment to a vibrant and friendly area of Bath. It will also help to safeguard the long term future of the football club through sustainable growth, whilst strengthening the already healthy ties that have been established with the local community. 04/07/2019
Adam White 2 Hillcrest Drive, Southdown, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 1HD S 04/07/2019: For twerton and the surrounding area this would be fantastic,providing a community hub and making Bath City FC a place for the whole of Bath to use and be proud of. 04/07/2019

Peter Newman 5 Barn Piece, Bradford On Avon, BA15 1XB S 04/07/2019: As a former resident of Oldfield Park I believe the South west area of Bath has been neglected for some time.
This development will ( I believe) have a very positive impact on Twerton and should be encouraged.
04/07/2019
Nick Hancock 92 Hawthorn Grove, Combe Down, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 5QG S 04/07/2019: I support the Application as I consider that it would be beneficial to Bath City Football Club, the local area and the City of Bath. 04/07/2019
Ruth Weeks 28 Inverness Road, Twerton, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 3RX S 04/07/2019: The area desperately needs this redevelopment. The High Street area has, for many years, been in decline with only a few shops and a funeral director. Failure to seize this opportunity might be the 'final nail in the coffin' for the Football Club and Twerton. 04/07/2019
Andrew Weeks 28 Inverness Road, Twerton, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 3RX S 04/07/2019: As a former Director of the Football Club I fully support the proposed application. The Twerton Park and High Street redevelopment would bring much needed investment to Twerton and help revitalize both the Football Club and the High Street. 04/07/2019
Linda Tees 101 Kelston View, Whiteway, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 1NS O 04/07/2019: It will cause to much traffic for the area. We already have a problem with public transport this will put enormous strain on buses. We also have a lot of problems in the area this development will only cause more.. We also have a large population of elderly people in the area a lot more noise for them. 04/07/2019
John Moore 9 Byfield, Combe Down, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 5JD S 04/07/2019: My submission is based on my letter, published in 'The Bath Chronicle' on 19th July 2018, which attempted to refute what I felt was, unjustified criticism of the Club's early development proposals. My letter :

"Following recent correspondence regarding Bath City’s development proposals I write as a ‘community’ shareholder with a modest investment. I responded to ‘The Big Bath City Bid’ with no agenda other than a desire to support the rescue of our community football club. I recognise, of course, that ‘saving’ the club must not be to the detriment of the greater Twerton community and have every sympathy for those residents who feel that the impact on their neighbourhood is greater than the benefits to the club.
Rather than attempting to address all of the complex factors surrounding the club’s development proposals - space does not permit - I would like to offer a few words of purely personal support of the club’s objectives.

What has encouraged me most, in the meetings of the Supporters’ Society (community share-holders) I have attended is the genuine desire to engage with the community and to ensure that residents are both considered and provided for. I have been impressed at how often the needs of the community are raised and at the attempts to engage in consultation. Clearly, from the concerns expressed in your pages recently, the club has a way to go in convincing residents’ of that good intention but I do not doubt its desire to engage with and develop a mutually-beneficial outcome.

The club, has an almost impossible task - to find revenue earning streams which provide benefit to all with no downside for the community.
All of the recently expressed concerns - not enough social housing, height of the proposed student accommodation, impact on High Street tenants - are entirely valid but I do believe that the club’s intentions are honourable. Doing nothing is not an option. Continued, open dialogue is ! "

Having, in the ensuing 12 months, attended a number of both Supporter Society briefings, and exhibitions to which the public have been invited, outlining the Club's evolving development proposals, I am even more convinced of the Club's integrity regarding the community. I have been struck by the fact that I have NEVER heard a comment which is detrimental to, or dismissive, of residents' views.

The Club's views have been well aired, both in this consultation and in the many attempts to involve the community, but I would highlight two example of EXTERNAL recognition of the Club's desire to involve the community. :

- the caption to the photo, supplied by The Chronicle, which accompanied my letter of 19th July, stated "School children can practice their penalty shoot-outs at Bath City FC -
JUST ONE OF THE WAYS IN WHICH THE CLUB IS SERVING THE WHOLE COMMUNITY " The Chronicle clearly recognises the Club'e efforts, therefore.

- I don't think there has been mention of The Mayor's recognition of the work of The Bath City FC Community Sports Foundation exemplified by the Reception of members of
the Foundation in The Mayor's Parlour recently.

In conclusion I believe the Club has the community's best interests at heart. Our challenge is to convince local residents.

Ruth Griffiths 14 Shophouse Road, Twerton, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 1EB O 05/07/2019: The proposed buildings alongside the south of the High Street are far too tall and will change the nature of Twerton beyond recognition; it will become more like a city centre than a small suburb. Also, these tall (7 storey high?) buildings will cause very little if no natural sunlight to fall to the south of the High Street. Parking will no doubt overflow to the surrounding areas which is nigh on full to capacity already. 05/07/2019
Matthew Gynn 9 Hazel Grove, Moorlands, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 2JE S 05/07/2019: I'm supporting the application as I'd like to see the club I've supported for 30 years remain in Twerton and to stay alive for the long term in a sustainable way. 05/07/2019
David Clarke 20-21 Brassmill Enterprise Centre, Brassmill Lane , Newbridge, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA1 3JN S 05/07/2019: I support this Application 100%. It is an opportunity to renew some much needed positivity, enthusiasm & hope to an area of Twerton which historically has suffered from a lack of investment and interest over many years. The scheme for the Football club looks good with an all weather 3G pitch and this will create more organised activity for the area for adults & children and although the accommodation is student based - which is not always popular in Bath - as it is a Warden controlled set-up, it will again mean that the area will be refreshed with activity rather than the current down beat feel this area has at present. I fully support this scheme & Application. 05/07/2019
Mark Taylor 3 London Rd, Wick, BS30 5SJ S 11/06/2019: I Truly believe that this is in the very best interests of Twerton

Mike Lazare 34 Forester Road, Bathwick, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 6QE S 11/06/2019: This would be a dramatic improvement to the stadium and local area. The football club is a key part of the city and it would be a real shame to lose it. 11/06/2019
Glenn Herriott 86 South Lodge Drive, Oakwood, N14 4XR S 11/06/2019: I enjoyed volunteering at Bath Football Club over first half of the 18/19 season. The club brings excellent benefits to the community through helping people to socialise with each other and spend quality time following a shared purpose. Long may this continue.
Furthermore, the development will have a major positive impact in an area that desperately needs investment
Also, consolidating the Club and its family of charity and youth groups at the stadium will help achieve even greater impacts on public health and sports participation

Viv Talbot 86 High Street, Twerton, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 1DE R 24/06/2019: Whilst supporting some parts of this proposal, in particular improvement of the High Street, enhanced community opportunities and the viability of Bath City Football Club, I would like to raise concerns about a number of aspects which I feel should be addressed before permission is granted.

1) The environmental impacts of installing a 3g pitch are very concerning and are in direct contradiction to the recent B&NES Council decision to declare a Climate Emergency and move to zero carbon emissions by 2030. The impacts include potential health effects to pitch users, the effects on wildlife, the release of microplastics and other toxic substances and the non-recyclable nature of the product (see links).

https://www.telegraph.co.uk/football/2016/10/15/why-3g-pitches-are-being-ripped-up-in-holland-over-health-fears/

2) I feel the volume of student accommodation is excessive and could negatively impact the community, for example by increasing competition for resources such as public transport and parking and intensifying tensions between local residents and students.

3) The proposed 7-storey buildings are disproportionately high and will dwarf the surrounding area, both physically and psychologically.

Paul Jones 3 Poston Way, Winsley, BA15 2NJ S 24/06/2019: As a regular visitor to/supporter at Bath City FC home matches, I fully endorse the proposed plans for the Bath City FC, Twerton Park redevelopment. 24/06/2019
Revd. Robert Pestell 135 Gretton Road, Winchcombe , Gloucestershire, GL54 5EL S 21/06/2019: As a long standing supporter of Bath City Football Club, I welcome and support the planning application to improve and develop the facilities at Twerton Park and in the surrounding area. Although I have not lived in Bath for some years (I was born and brought up in Bath and the family home has been there until recently) I have continued to make regular visits to Twerton Park and have seen the decline taking place within the local community. The proposed plan does, I believe, seek to provide significant improvements to facilities and amenities that will be of benefit both to the Football Club and to people living in Twerton. I am passionate about Regeneration and creating opportunities for communities to develop and be successful and feel that the proposals in this planning application will be of major benefit to a considerable number of people and will enhance an area that is in need of an uplift. 21/06/2019
Melanie Ward 5 The Maltings, Midford Hill, Hinton Charterhouse, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 7DE S 18/07/2019: I hope that developing Bath City Football ground will further enhance local support for and success of our local football club 18/07/2019
Jeroen De Jong 3 Arundel Road, Walcot, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA1 6EF S 21/06/2019: The city of Bath should have a football team representative of the city itself.

Craig Fenton 11 St Martin's Court, Midford Road, Odd Down, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 5RQ S 22/06/2019: I think that the council should support anything that helps regenerate and invigorate the area. It would be beneficial to the city to have another prestigious sporting venue and with the added benefit of accommodation would bring a much needed revenue boost to the area. 22/06/2019

Caspar Vick 39 St Kilda's Road, Oldfield Park, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 3QL S 22/06/2019: I am in full support of this proposal. It brings much needed regeneration to the high street which has long been neglected. While the student housing is unpopular the benefits of the community space to the locals of Twerton and face lift of their high street. It could be a kin to something along the high street in Weston or even the Moreland road in Oldfield park. It also provides affordable housing that is in short supply in the area, not to mention the jobs provided in the building process and post completion. 22/06/2019
Andrew Strange 32 Audley Avenue, Lower Weston, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA1 3BL S 23/06/2019: Welcome the proposals to enhance the site of the stadium and enhance the future prospects for Bath City and sport in the City. The scheme will remove the existing poor quality facilities, provide much improved facilities and will provide an opportunity to make the best use of this brownfield site. 23/06/2019
Pamela Barnett 2 Trelissick Gardens , Callington , Cornwall , PL17 7TH S 23/06/2019: By making the club solvent and keeping it in Twerton, it would provide a 3G pitch for schools and community groups 23/06/2019
D Barnett 2 Trelissick Gardens, Callington , PL17 7TH S 23/06/2019: This will keep the club solvent, keep it in Twerton, provide affordable accommodation and regenerate Twerton high street 23/06/2019
Martin Powell 20 Whitestone Road, Frome, BA11 2DW S 23/06/2019: This opportunity to secure the future of the football club in the city is the result of an enormous amount of work - it will not only provide modern facilities for supporters but should help the club to become sustainable.

There has been a real effort to consult with and listen to the local community who have become far more closely connected with Twerton Park over the past two years. This association should continue to prosper with the passing of the application.

The benefits of a community run club are already very clear - please allow the club to continue in the city!
23/06/2019
Martin Charlesworth 60 Keepers Road, SN10 2FP S 23/06/2019: I am writing to express my opinion that this development will be a benefit to the community. 23/06/2019
David Dixon 59 Sladebrook Road, Southdown, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 1LP S 23/06/2019: Twerton Park has been a huge asset to our local community for many years.

For me it's been everything, from turning up watch Bath City and Bristol Rovers play there when I was a kid, through to family events such as wedding receptions, birthdays and wakes. More recently I have been involved with the club and facilities by attending community and stakeholder meetings and also as a business partner of the football club as a sponsor of Bath City. Add to this that I am a supplier to the club for print and promotional materials as well as the match day programmes.

So for me in many ways keeping not just football club but also the facilities at Twerton Park is vital for the local community and helps to support a wide range of local businesses. A real boost to the economy of the whole city and its environs.

The proposed development has been well thought through and enables the club to settle many years worth of building debt as well as start operating at a surplus.

The club will also provide much need 3G pitch which the area needs and will incresde opportunities for more people.to be more active, more often. All this meets the Council's "Fit for Life" strategy and it's emerging plan.

The extra student accommodation will also help the viability of local Twerton businesses which have been suffering of late. I think that this will make Twerton High Street become as amazing and thriving as Moorland Road, an area of Bath which has greatly benefitted from the influx of student residents to the area.

I believe that all of the above will outweigh any potential detriments of the scheme.

Philip Turner 42 Lyndhurst Road, Twerton, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 3JH S 14/06/2019: Bath City FC makes a huge contribution to social cohesion in the area. In order for the club to achieve is full potential it needs facilities that will draw people, not only to spectate but also to participate in sports, particularly the young. This would have a positive health impact, both physical and mental. In addition, the improvement of the appearance of Twerton main street would lift the aspirations of its many residents and visitors. 14/06/2019
Andrew Pierce 3 Hay Street, Marshfield, SN14 8NJ S 14/06/2019: I have been attending home matches at Twerton Park for over 40 years. In that time both the facilities in the ground, and the general appearance of the surrounding area have become in desperate need of re-generation. This project will deliver on both of these issues and therefore gets my full support. 14/06/2019

Nick Blofeld 18 Mina Street, Tiddington, Stratford Upon Avon, CV37 7AZ S 14/06/2019: The Twerton Park and the High Street re development will bring much needed investment to Twerton and help revitalize both the club and the High Street. Student accommodation is part of the plan and is much needed in Bath. We cannot ignore that fact. Properly designed it will add to a City, and so will the students. It can also ease pressure on HMO, preventing more family houses been lost to students. The Football Club needs this development to secure its long term future in Twerton and it would be a sad loss to the area if it had to move or be sold. 14/06/2019
Melanie Hughes 4 The Quadrangle, Herne Hill, SE24 9QR S 14/06/2019: As a match day visitor to the Football Club the new plans will help keep the Club at Twerton Park for the long term and these plans will ensure the Club can ran in a sustainable manner.
The Football team has played at Twerton Park for over 80 years and these plans will help to keep the Club as a vital coummunity asset to the local area.

Paul Brake 48 Lansdown View, Twerton, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 1BQ S 14/06/2019: Whilst not convinced about the additional student accommodation which is not needed, I would strongly support this application which will be good for the area and for the football club which is oft ignored by Bath in favour of the rugby. This is a good plan for Twerton and for Bath. 14/06/2019
Clive Pratt 85 Plymouth Drive, Fareham, PO14 3SP S 14/06/2019: These improvements to both the facilities at Bath City football club,and the surrounding area of Twerton will be massive,and should be applauded.
Although i live in Hampshire,i grew up in Bath and was a regular visitor to Twerton Park in those heady days of Charle Fleming and that wonderful team he played with,and my support continues to this day,receiving regular updates from the club.Looking forward to attending future games and completion of the planned improvements.

John Reynolds Brook House, Stoney Stratton, Shepton Mallet, Somerset, BA4 6EB S 14/06/2019: Having been brought up in Twerton we never had much but Bath City Football Club was a very important part of our lives and apart from watching the football as a family we also at the community use of what was call then the Penguin Club to which many Twerton Families spent there Saturday and Sunday nights to which gave Twerton a very strong family connection and a wonderful place to live.
I fully support the redevelopment for lots of reasons, first Bath City have not taken a selfish attitude in just providing a football stadium but have provided scheme which will benefit Twerton and the community of Bath and will also provide the stepping stone for greater things to happen in Twerton
I fully support this and Twerton needs it.

Nigel Ashworth 53 Lansdown View, Twerton, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 1BQ O 15/06/2019: I approve of the development of Twerton park but there is too much student accommodation in an already flooded area of students . Parking facilities are also an issue for residents which is already an issue . No children if Twerton will be buying or renting in Twerton in years to come and they should be bath city supporters but will be living out of the city . 15/06/2019
Peter And Joan Hayes 52 Landseer Road, Twerton, Bath, BA2 1DX, S 15/06/2019: This development can only good for the local community and upgrade the general poor reputation that Twerton has in the minds of most people 15/06/2019
Barbara Gordon 20 Otago Terrace, Larkhall, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA1 6SX S 15/06/2019: I support the planning application because I believe that it’s for the good of the community and Bath as a whole to secure the future of Bath City FC. 15/06/2019
Gareth Thomas 3 Combeside, Widcombe, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 4LU S 15/06/2019: A great application in every way, providing a much needed regeneration for Twerton. Only shame that there’s so much student accommodation and not more starter homes. 15/06/2019

Lee Morris 9 Middlewood Close, Odd Down, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 2TU S 16/06/2019: I think this is a tremendous development for the local area that will bring life and vibrancy back to Twerton high Street. The development of the football ground will bring undoubted opportunities for local children to play football on a great surface and become part of a growing football club. 16/06/2019
Laura Phillips 2 Privet Way, SN13 9WR S 16/06/2019: I fully support the re-development of Twerton Park. I am the founder of We Get It which is a Bath based cancer community and support group. We would really like to provide more opportunities for people dealing with cancer in the Twerton area. This re-development would provide a safe space and area for us to meet in the community. 16/06/2019

Elizabeth Sharling-Hand 11 Quarry Vale, Combe Down, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 5JZ S 17/06/2019: Twerton High Street needs to be revitalised to encourage new business and support the local community. The Stadium will help the Club to grow and again bring new life and families into the community. 17/06/2019
James Carlin 14 Uphill Drive, Larkhall, Bath, BA1 6PA, S 17/06/2019: I support the application because this will secure Bath City FC's long-term future at the heart of its community in Twerton. It will also consolidate the vital charity and youth work at the stadium which will help achieve even greater impacts on public health and sports participation in an area of deprivation. 17/06/2019
Edward Rowberry 7 Cornwall Road, Bristol, BS78LJ S 17/06/2019: This development appears to be transformational for the area (known for under investment and high levels of poverty) and will also provide a sustainable future for the club. So should be encouraged. 17/06/2019
David Williams 26 Melcombe Road, Oldfield Park, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 3LR S 17/06/2019: Bath City and the Twerton community will both benefit from this redevelopment. 17/06/2019

Andrew Harper AA Flooring Ltd, Purn House Farm Bleadon, BS24 0QE S 17/06/2019: I Think the above development,would fantastic for the local community, and much needed boost to regenerate the area. New facilities for the children and young people to use. 17/06/2019

Neill Menneer Spirit Photographic , Old Methodist Church, High Street, Twerton, Bath, BA2 1BZ, S 12/06/2019: This is a unique opportunity for Twerton and Bath to regenerate the area. Presently despite its great location Twerton High st looks drab and unloved and lacks commercial activity and investment. It's raison d'etre as a shopping high street has been undermined by the excellent shopping facilities now located on the Lower Bristol Rd. It desperately needs an injection of purpose and new blood. This will be provided by the student facilities which will also link to other student accommodation on LBR. The high street should cater to this youth market on its doorstep more than it does presently. The design for the high street inproves the skyline getting rid of the flat roof and replacing with a far more interesting silhouette and profile. 12/06/2019
Steve Dixon 6 Elliston Drive, Southdown, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 1LU S 12/06/2019: This plan is perfect for regenerating both Bath City FC and the village of Twerton. I'm a Twerton lad born and bread as our families. The village is slowly dying, from seeing and experiencing it in the 70s & 80s to seeing it now is a crying shame. Please pass this application which will hugely benefit the future of Twerton as a whole. 12/06/2019

William Durrant 79 The Oval, Southdown, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 2HE S 12/06/2019: The planning application for a new football stadium to keep Bath City FC in Twerton should be accepted as it will build a better community spirit within the Twerton area and also not only improve the sporting facilities that Bath has to offer but also the surrounding area of the stadium, bringing benefits to not only those who play and watch football at Bath City FC on a regular basis but the people living in the Twerton area as a whole. 12/06/2019
Andy Iles 5 Isleys Court , Longwell Green, Bristol, BS30 7DR S 12/06/2019: The developement has been well thought out and will be a benefit to both the football club and the locality as a whole. 12/06/2019
Simon Massey 5 Brunswick Place, City Centre, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA1 2RQ S 03/07/2019: having considered the application in detail i can only see this as providing regeneration in one of the poorer areas of Bath as well as upgrading the historic football club and its viability. 03/07/2019

R Chester 30 Queensholm Crescent, Bristol, BS16 6LR S 03/07/2019: This is a great opportunity to modernise Twerton High Street and the surrounds and this opportunity should not be missed. The project should breath new life into the area and should help businesses. This will also help the football club which has been an important part of the area for many years. With the new community ownership at Bath City FC the local area will benefit greatly from all the work that the football club are doing and plan to do for the community in the future. 03/07/2019
Jennifer Renney-Butland 22 Audley Avenue, Lower Weston, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA1 3BL S 03/07/2019: I would like to support the application as I consider that the plan will enhance football and sport in and around Bath, and will provide a structured recreational area for children and young people in and around Twerton which they are currently lacking and greatly in need of. 03/07/2019
Max Newman 49 Freeview Road, Twerton, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 1DS S 03/07/2019: Good for the future generations of Twerton and Bath. 03/07/2019
Matt Brook 4 East Lea Road, Lower Weston, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA1 3RP S 03/07/2019: Along with other sporting organisations in Bath, Bath City FC is a key resource for local community and visitor engagement, development and economic growth that with the proposed redevelopment of the site will be able to provide a key resource for the long term for current and future generations, not just in Twerton but for Bath as a whole. Redevelopment can only improve the quality of facilities, road safety and opportunities for social integration - I whole-heartedly support the application.
03/07/2019
Sheila Feereyra 8 Twerton Farm Close, Twerton, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 1BL S 03/07/2019: The mixed-use development is very much needed in this area to bring businesses and life back into the high street. We are very much in support of the regeneration of the area. 03/07/2019
Richard Jurd 3 Little Blenheim, Yarnton, Kindlington, OX5 1LX S 03/07/2019: The whole plan looks excellent and will rejuvinate the Twerton Area and provide first class football facility- it worked in Oxford and it can work for Bath 03/07/2019
Matt Lloyd 15 Windsor Road, BS6 5BW S 03/07/2019: Fully support the plans for transformation of the Ground and local area. 03/07/2019
Graham Abbots Nancledra, Solsbury Way, Fairfield Park, Bath, BA1 6HJ, S 03/07/2019: This development would be a big improvement for Twerton its community and for the excellent sporting facility that it would provide. Bath would also have a soccer stadium to be proud of. 03/07/2019
Tommy Thompson 32 Southstoke Road, Combe Down, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 5SN S 03/07/2019: To put it simply, without this development the club will not survive. It’s a massive plus for the city to have a progressive football club like Bath FC and I for one support this application. 03/07/2019
Peter Underwood 26 Kennedy Road, Bicester, Oxon, OX26 2BE S 03/07/2019: The area will be transformed, will bring job and a boost to the community. 03/07/2019
Stan Hampton 62 Brassmill Lane, Newbridge, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA1 3JD R 03/07/2019: In general, I support the application, but have two serious reservations.

1.The proposed new playing surface is not acceptable from an environmental point of view. It cannot support any life forms and cannot assist with carbon capture, which grass does.

2. The 5G mast means that electromagnetic waves of untested values, that some experts consider dangerous to health, will be in close vicinity to large numbers of people including children.

Since Bath&NE.Somerset council have declared a climate emergency, the suitability of the artificial turf and mast should be questioned. They are not compatible with the council's declaration!

Mark Stillman 24 Wellow Tyning, Peasedown St. John, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 8LJ S 03/07/2019: This is a chance to give Twerton a much needed renovation, not just the stadium. It will bring the community together. 03/07/2019

Christine Freestone 85 Thicket Mead, Midsomer Norton, Radstock, Bath And North East Somerset, BA3 2SL S 03/07/2019: I wish it to be noted that I approve of this development.
The Bath City football team has played here for 80 years. As a fan of Bath City myself I think it is a brilliant development. Matches are attended by local people and it is a wonderful way to keep the football club vibrant long into the future. Bath City fans would not be able to envisage the team playing anywhere other than Twerton Park.
It will also serve the local community with all the facilities, not just for football fans.
As a teacher I know the benefits of it being an excellent focus for the youth in the area as well as the general community.
The residential provision will provide much needed accommodation.
It is an area that needs updating and the investment can only be good for the local people as it will be an excellent resource for regeneration.It will be an excellent improvement to what is there already.


03/07/2019
Sally Marquiss 8 Orchard Terrace, Twerton, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 1DU O 03/07/2019: I object to this application as it contravenes the Core Strategy and Placemaking Plan.
The development is too large for the site and the height and scale of the buildings is incongruous with existing buildings which are 2/3 storey. The proposed development will feel oppressive from the High Street and will block the views of surrounding green areas currently enjoyed by residents living close to the ground. The number of student units proposed per hectare are 1227 compared to 703 on the old Pickfords site, the proposed density is unacceptable and will provide a poor standard of living. The student units and residential appartments above the retail units will have no outlook and will suffer from reduced natural light caused by the scale and design of the scheme. CP9 of the Core Strategy dictates that any development in Twerton should consist 40% affordable units of the total dwellings provided. The current proposal provides less than the 30% recommended for sites elsewhere in BANES. There will be a negative environmental and ecological impact with the loss of the grass playing surface and existing trees. The surface water run off is a concern and will need to be addressed as well as the potential impact on water pressure due to increased demand on services. If you consider the recommendation for parking in ST7 the proposed number of spaces falls far short of the allowance required for even the residential units (non student) let alone the football ground and customers/staff of the retail units. There will be increased pressure on local GP and NHS services and I am not aware of any plans to increase provision. There will be an increased pressure on public transport services and this will have a serious impact on local roads which are of insufficient width to accommodate large vehicles. The recent introduction of double decker buses following route changes via Shophouse Road and High Street are already contributing to increased congestion and this will result in increased emissions which is detrimental to health. Emissions will also increase due to the increased number of visitors to the new facilities provided at the site, 3G pitch, community centre, gym, etc. The proposal to widen the footpath on the High Street and the introduction of delivery bays on the High Street will result in a reduction in the width of the road, further increasing congestion. The development of brown field sites along the Lower Bristol Road has resulted in increased numbers of cars parking in residental areas and the additional development of the Bath City FC site will further impact local residents who are unable to park near to their homes. Additionally the current parking provision at Twerton Park for Curo staff will be lost through the scheme. The proposed traffic management plan for the PBSA is unenforceable by law and there is clear evidence that students living in the existing PBSA bring their cars with them to Bath despite it being a condition of their lease not to. There will be increased noise and light pollution resulting from the potential for the 3G pitch to be used until 10pm, seven days per week. The existing buildings surrounding the site cause noise from the ground to echo across a large area of Twerton in such a way that it feels as if the noise is coming from the Oldfield Park direction. The noise levels on match days should not be underestimated and whilst residents are happy to live with this once a fortnight the negative impact on residents wellbeing from the increased noise is very real. Increased light pollution from the floodlights is also a concern with the pitch being used every evening. This scheme is being presented as a benefit to residents of Twerton, however Twerton has the highest levels of poverty in Bath and the highest levels of obesity and ill health. Whilst in theory the provision of facilities which encourage increased physical activity should help with this, the reality is that the facilities will not be affordable for local people. The High Street has suffered from a lack of investment and care over a number of years, the existing landlord of the retail and residential units included in this scheme has refused to address issues of concern raised with regards pest control, waste and alcohol and drug misuse on its land. This has contributed to the demise of the high street with tenants of the retail units moving out because the units are not fit for purpose. WECA funding has been secured for improving Twerton High Street and so improvement is not dependant on the Bath City FC scheme going ahead. An increase in police presence and outreach support to the homeless community in Twerton and those with alcohol and drug addiction would result in an improved environment. As far as I can see these things are not included in this planning application and are therefore unlikely to disappear if the application is approved. Twerton is exactly the area where affordable/social housing is required and it is disappointing that the provision within these scheme is so insignificant.
03/07/2019
Philip Hardy 45 Lymore Avenue, Twerton, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 1BB S 24/06/2019: This is a wonderful opportunity to regenerate a sadly neglected high street and, with the added bonus, it won’t be at the tax payers’ expense. From this the community and football club will benefit greatly.
The parking problems occur once a fortnight, for a couple of hours, so does this constitute a problem? Most of the time the area is quiet.
Between 1986 and 1996, the Bristol Rovers era, the crowds were far larger than today but the area coped well with the greater volume of traffic and congestion. The residents of Weston have to put up with far greater parking issues, due to the R.U.H., on a day- to-day occurrence, than what we see here.
A purpose built student accommodation block, where parking is not permitted, would certainly ease the pressure on residential homes being turned into HMO, especially in the Oldfield Park area where it’s already absolutely crammed.
If this application isn’t passed the club will have to sell up and move out with houses built, affordable or otherwise, on the site and thus creating far greater parking and congestion problems, on a more frequent basis, than if the club remained.
24/06/2019
Mrs Jan Bale 28 Bloomfield Drive, Bloomfield, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 2BG S 14/06/2019: I trust that the proposed number of social housing is maintained through to completion. So often it is found that this aspect of a planning application is modified and invariably social housing is reduced. 14/06/2019
Andrea Stevens 31 Old Mill Way, BS24 7AS S 14/06/2019: No concerns with the planning. 14/06/2019
Tom Morgan 42 Charlton Road, Midsomer Norton, BA3 4AE, S 14/06/2019: Twerton has been on a downward spiral for a number of years, the regeneration of the local area will bring positivity and opportunities and will make the area great place to live in and be.

The City deserves a football team in a much higher position to rival the rugby and the planned upgrades are only going to increase the desire to play for Bath City and attract the best talent and fans.
14/06/2019
Michael Brennan 54 Frankland Close, Lower Weston, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA1 4EJ S 14/06/2019: I think this would be great for the community of Twerton and Bath. 14/06/2019
Solange Foster-Lambert 1 The Chestertons, Bathampton, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 6UJ S 14/06/2019: I fully support the application as I believe that it would be beneficial for all. 14/06/2019
John Payne Mortimer House, 9 Vallis Way, Frome, BA11 3BD S 14/06/2019: I have an interest in this because:
1) My father George Payne was one of the local Twerton boys who helped to lay the original pitch in about 1933
2) I have been a supporter of BCFC since I was about 10 years old
3) I am a current season-ticket-holder
4) I have a disability which affects my mobility.


In general terms I support the application. It seems to me that it will make considerable improvements to an area of Bath which has often been neglected by the authorities. It will provide excellent retail accommodation in the High Street and improve the general visual appearance of the High Street.

Initially I had some reservations on the issue of student housing. On discussing this in detail with the development team, I am convinced that the terms set out for this accommodation, for example the ban on student cars, providing rail tickets etc for students arriving in Twerton, will ensure that the students will be 'good neighbours' to the local community. I think the hostility to students in this part of Bath has to be related to the fact that similar restrictions have not been placed on the development of both purpose-built student accommodation and the use of multi-occupied houses and flats by students.


I have also discussed disability aspects of the plan with the developers, and the provision of a lift from car-park to pitch level will be of great benefit to regular users like myself and to other disabled people coming for one-off events.

To summarise, I think this is a well though out and excellent design which meets the requirements of both the football club and the local community and is also visually pleasing in a part of Bath long ignored by the city.

14/06/2019
Terry Morgan 57 Freeview Road, Twerton, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 1DT O 14/06/2019: There is insufficient car parking space. As a very minimum there must be two spaces per affordable housing unit(24), one per co-living apartment (33) and one per ten student bed (35). That makes 92 car parking spaces PLUS those needed for the audience at the Football matches. Failure to properly address this issue will merely push all this traffic onto the surrounding roads which are already overcrowded.
There is no requirement for more student accommodation in the area whilst there is a desperate need for more affordable housing.
There is no demand for additional retail units as is evidenced by the empty and under utilised present shops.
If Bath City Football Club can justify the upgrade to their facilities then good luck to them but they should not seek to justify this with money making schemes which will blight the neighbourhood.
This scheme does not meet the needs of the neighbourhood.
14/06/2019
Kevin D Houston 4 Frome Road, Odd Down, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 2QA S 14/06/2019: I support the proposal as it will give a new energy to Twerton high street and benifit the community. 14/06/2019
Deny Coughlan 10 Christchurch Court, 171 Willesden Lane, Kilburn, NW6 7XF S 14/06/2019: I may live in London most of the time, but I welcome the thought of a redevelopment in Twerton. I can see it revitalising the area and creating so many opportunities for local people for years to come. They deserve it, and so does the football team. It could really transform the place.

Hoping you'll agree, and thx for reading.

Victoria Smith 14 Longfellow Avenue, Bear Flat, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 4SJ S 14/06/2019: This is such a great opportunity for Twerton & Bath as a whole bringing community, opportunity and sport for all to experience. 14/06/2019
Paul Brotherton 45 Kipling Avenue, Bear Flat, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 4RB S 14/06/2019: I strongly support this application which I believe will bring many benefits to Twerton and to BANES as a whole. These include improving the environment in Twerton, offering modern facilities and a better experience for people attending matches, providing a 3G pitch for community use, improving health and reducing health inequalities through better physical activity opportunities for local people, increasing the provision of much needed social housing, regenerating Twerton, providing community facilities such as meeting spaces for local groups, increasing student accommodation and thus reducing the pressure on houses of multiple occupancy, increasing employment, helping to ensure the financial viability of Bath City FC and strengthening the image of Bath as a sporting city. 14/06/2019
Sean Moore 44 Kelston View, Whiteway, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 1NP O 01/07/2019: 1) The development is out of character with the local area and would be over dominant in a high street that is mainly residential with a few local shops.

2) The residential developed area opposite the application site is two story high two or three bedroomed properties. The properties on the same side of the High Street are up to three stories high with smaller developments of two Stories at either end of the High Street. 

The developments in Clyde Gardens and Dominion Road are two stories high as are those at Landseer Road and Highland Road, with the bungalows of Quebec adjacent to the development.

The setting of the listed building at Rose Cottage and the rest of the area mentioned would be overshadowed by the proposed development up to 7 stories high this would alter the character of the High Street beyond recognition and have a detrimental impact on the area removing the character of a mainly residential area.

3) The introduction of a trasengent community of up to 360 students in a small building that will only be in occupation for 9 months of the year is more than the community can take. The building is far too small for this number and gives scant living conditions as opposed to other developments on the Lower Bristol Road that have far less students in larger accommodation.

4) There is no mention of an environmental impact assessment on site that needs to be carried out on site on all aspects of the development, especially the 3G pitch, as no mention has been made of the infill that is to be used or what will be done with the pitch at the end of it's useful life of approx 10 years.

5) The removal of the trees that create a barrier between the site and the elderly residential development is a regressive step.

6) The addition of an entertainment complex and gymnasium is far too close to the elderly persons at both Quebec and Hanna Close.

7) The mention of landscaping in Innox Park is not detailed and significant works are already being carried out here, which will leave very little scope for this aspect to have any mitigation.

Dr Elizabeth Thomas Amberlea The Gardens, Sion Road, Lansdown, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA1 2TJ S 01/07/2019: Twerton needs a boost in the appearance of the area and improved facilities like cafes and shops. The football club may be small but its members are growing and it serves a social need in the area. This planning application should increase the availability of football and gym to the local population (41.53% have no car in the household). As a doctor I want people to be able to exercise on their doorstep and to encourage family activity. The mix of housing with 1. student cluster accommodation addresses some of the current concerns about student social isolation because these units offer shared social areas and 2. There is also the prospect of help to buy. 01/07/2019
Daniel Bryant 17 Millmead Road, Twerton, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 3JW S 27/06/2019: Whilst a little bit of a shame more actual affordable housing can't be included in the redevelopment. This is exactly the type of investment and redevelopment Bath and Bath City fc needs. A modern high street and stadium fit for the 21st century. The designs look amazing! 27/06/2019
Kim Newman Flat 1, Naish House, Shaws Way, Twerton, Bath, BA2 1SF, S 27/06/2019: Great opportunity 27/06/2019

Sue Brigden 70 Beauchamp Avenue, Midsomer Norton, Bath And North East Somerset, BA3 4FX, S 28/06/2019: What an enhancement it would offer to the whole community as well as surrounding areas.
BANES need to support these type of projects alongside the development of the 'Rec'
Bath NEEDS these facilities to sustain both the people and the city.
Sport in any shape is and always will be at the heart of health, wealth and good general well being. Don't lose yet another good project to politics

Katherine F 5 Malvern Terrace, Camden Road, Beacon Hill, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA1 5JT S 20/06/2019: I believe this is a very good plan, but I do have some concerns about parking. To fix the problem Twerton could, like much of Bath, have residents only parking, excluding residents of the student flats. As for the BCFC supporters, could there not be special buses going from the Newbridge Park & Ride, or at least a drop off on game days near the stadium? 20/06/2019
Van DuBose 27 St James's Square, Lansdown, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA1 2TT S 10/06/2019: The Twerton Park redevelopment will have a significantly positive impact on the local community as well as the whole City of Bath. 10/06/2019

Alan Peters 29 Maple Walk, Keynsham, Bristol, BS31 2SB S 10/06/2019: The community really benefits from the football club. To allow this development to take place would mean that the facilities on offer to the community could be enhanced with even more groups and individuals being able to take part. 10/06/2019
Ginny Saunders 4 Macaulay Buildings, Widcombe, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 6AS S 10/06/2019: I fully support the plans from Bath City FC-they are a great asset to our city-and an important part of the Twerton community. 10/06/2019

Mark Evitts 10 Frankley Buildings, Fairfield Park, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA1 6EG S 16/07/2019: This development will serve as a catalyst to injecting much needed investment, regeneration and excitement into the area. The design of the new stand and the public realm surrounding it is sympathetic and functional, but has also been well thought out and really energises the space. The mixed use components of the development whilst necessary from a fiscal perspective, are also aesthetically pleasing and will, I believe, bring vibrancy and energy to the community. 16/07/2019
Gerry Dolan 32 Abbott House, Everard Close, St. Albans, AL1 2BZ S 17/06/2019: I am an exiled Bathonian that still visits the city to support the football club frequently during the season. I fully support the planning application not only for the benefits to the football club but to the Twerton community which is in desperate need of regeneration. The tourists buses dont go to Twerton, the community is literally on the wrong side of the railway, and a few miles and light years from the centre of the city, the grandeur and all the benefits that are associated with a city like Bath. The plans make very clear the difference to the community, to the welfare of adults and children alike, this once in a lifetime opportunity presents. If not now, when? if not this application, who is going to fund such a life changing scheme? 17/06/2019
Deborah Dilworth Not Given S 02/08/2019: Bath City FC work tirelessly for the community. This project will help the community asset that is the football club. 02/08/2019
Andrew Short 1 Hartham Lane, Biddestone, Chippenham, SN14 7EA S 02/07/2019: As a local by birth , I see this development as a real improvement for the area of Twerton. 02/07/2019
Kevin Pearson 2 The Downs, Farmington Road, Paulton, BS39 7LP S 02/07/2019: I feel that the proposal for the redevelopment at bath city/ Twerton high street is an absolutely fantastic, very very long overdue and a real opportunity to maximise the potential, there’s is no doubt at all that if this was to go ahead it would completely transform this part of twerton, the increased revenue that a redeveloped twerton park would create from a more inviting ground which would in turn be more inviting to more young people to support their local team it would really stamp Bath city football on the map. There would naturally be a big increase on venue hiring, a brand new venue would create endless interest from all party’s and the knock on affect for more local employment for local people nothing but good can come from a long overdue investment plan for bath city and twerton high street. Also just to add that with regards to traffic bathcity has had some very large crowds on match day and because of the many routes leading to bathcity has never been a problem. 02/07/2019
Hannah Watson 24 Audley Avenue, Lower Weston, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA1 3BL S 02/07/2019: The proposal will provide a great boost for the local Twerton community, the City of Bath and for the continued growth and development of Bath City FC. The area and the club need some well- deserved investment and attention. 02/07/2019
Myles Gallagher 29 Westfield Park, Newbridge, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA1 3HS S 02/07/2019: I believe this application offers the best overall use for the site and local community. 02/07/2019

Robert Lane 7 Greyfield Common, High Littleton, Bristol, Bath And North East Somerset, BS39 6YL S 02/07/2019: I believe that the new development will keep the club I love alive for the long term and make it more sustainable.
It ensures the team continues to play at Twerton Park where it's been for over 80 years.
There will be a great improvement in facilities for Bath City FC and its family of charity and youth groups at the stadium which will help achieve even greater impact on public health and sports participation

This application provides much needed investment in Twerton, a good area with good people, which has struggled in recent years and requires a fresh impetuous to invigorate the High Street and surrounding area.

Jaqueline Watson 71 High Street, Twerton, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 1DQ R 02/07/2019: As a local resident my main concern is the lack of parking provision. The High Street (narrow at the best of times) is extremely busy and especially so on match days. Reducing the parking bays at the football ground will worsen parking problems even when the overflow car park is taken into account.
I am extremely concerned about the potential use of the 3G pitch for events other than football. Residents in the immediate neighbourhood (Quebec for example) could be disturbed by excessive noise and/or light pollution from floodlights.
The height of the planned student block goes against the Bath Buildings Heights Strategy and is out of keeping with the surrounding buildings. Such a tall building will also result in loss of natural light and privacy issues (being overlooked) for tenants in the flats over the shops.
02/07/2019
Paul Bayly 37 Pavely Close, Chippenham, SN15 2BZ S 02/07/2019: I think the re-development of Twerton Park wil be fantastic for the Club and for all local residents. the upgraded shopping and surrounding areas can only be good news for all concerned. 02/07/2019
Graham Weeks 28 Inverness Road, Twerton, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 3RX S 02/07/2019: As a Twerton resident, for many years now the High Street area has been in decline. The proposed redevelopment and regeneration will, I'm sure, revitalise the area and breathe new life back in to the community. Failure to seize this opportunity will, in my view, cast a shadow over the future, not only of the Football Club but Twerton as a whole. 02/07/2019
James Wood Stoney Walls, Back Lane, Marshfield, SN14 8NQ S 08/07/2019: This is a great propsal and offers a much improved an much needed facility for the club and local community 08/07/2019
Ruth Sampson 5 Squire Lane, Ubley, BS40 6PP S 11/06/2019: I have used the facilities at the football club for work meetings / promotional events and see it as a great community asset. It's in desperate need of modernising, which will hopefully encourage more people to support the club and use the facilities on offer. 11/06/2019
Patrick Anketell-Jones 9 City View, Walcot, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA1 5JQ S 11/06/2019: Twerton is just a 10 minute bus ride from the centre of Bath yet it still runs the risk of social and economic isolation from the prosperity of the wider city. This development will recharge the high street and reinforce the strong community identity of Twerton. It can only be beneficial. 11/06/2019
E Hammond 3 Clarence Terrace, Bathwick, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 6EB S 11/06/2019: I support this application 11/06/2019
Paul Tarling Rowan Edge, Westfield Close, Bloomfield, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 2EA S 11/06/2019: I think this would be a fantastic development for not only Bath City FC and the Twerton area but for Bath in general. It would rejuvenate the feeling around the football club and that area of Bath whilst offering some fantastic facilities to the wider community. 11/06/2019
Anita Jaynes 15 Copenacre Way, Corsham, Wiltshire, SN13 0BU S 11/06/2019: This is a fantastic opportunity to revitalise and rejuvenate Twerton. I really hope everyone gets behind this proposal. 11/06/2019

The development is vital to the vision of a new community club and will benefit not just Bath City FC, but children in the local area and across the city. 17/06/2019
Gina Sheppard 110B High Street, Twerton, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 1DB O 17/06/2019: This will have a negative effect our roads! Traffic will increase due to the footfall and our roads cannot cope.

Also parking will be an issue due to more cars being in the area and I dont see how you can full police students not being allowed cars.

It will also block any natural sunlight on the high street.

It will also effect the tenants who currently live in the flats as they will be made to live in temporary accommodation and then not let back in when the flats have been redecorated.
17/06/2019
Mark Walsh 63 Highgate, Longmead Terrace, Westmoreland, Bath, BA2 3WL, S 17/06/2019: This is a golden opportunity that cannot be missed. Twerton has so many social and economic challenges and it needs a leg up. This application will lead to people saying that “Twerton is up and coming”, whilst the failure to support this application will keep Twerton and its residents at the bottom of the social ladder for generations! It deserves all our support! 17/06/2019

I support the proposed re-development as it provides some re-generation to Twerton-on-Avon with improved pedestrianisation, provides an all weather playing surface which can be used for social activities within Banes on non Bath City match days, allows multi use of new buildings for social activities and provides a modicum of much needed social housing within the City of Bath.

Active lifestyles and community sports are vital in building healthy communities and this proposal supports and enhances both for our City of Bath.

Ann Dunlop Acacia Lodge, Kensington Place, Walcot, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA1 6AP S 19/06/2019: I think this is the best chance of keeping Bath City football club in Bath. Twerton would benefit in all sorts of ways from this redevelopment. 19/06/2019
John Reynolds Brook House, Stoney Stratton, Shepton Mallet , Somerset , BA4 6EB S 19/06/2019: Having been bourne and bread in Twerton in 1946 Bath City Football Club played a big part in the community with facilities to provide family entertainment with brought the people of Twerton together and in doing so formed a strong family community, in the 60' it was called the Penguin Club full of families each weekend with enjoyment for all.
The planning application made by Bath City Football Club is not a selfish planning application just for football but for all in the community and Bath as well and it will form a new community hub for everyone to enjoy at no cost to the council and will also form the start of greater things to happen in Twerton which the people of Twerton fully deserves, long overdue .
I fully support the development which meets in design and heights with on going developments within the area of the Lower Bristol Road.

David Kongialis 3 Beaufort West, Lambridge, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA1 6QB S 11/06/2019: It is essential for the City to have this. The redevelopment of both stadiums in the city will give a sporting city with a sporting university a real opportunity to stride into the future. There is no reason why Bath City cannot become a league club and to have a football club like that would be huge for this city in so many ways.
Twerton is often forgotten and to have a facility capable of drawing more locals to the area would give a much needed boost to the community and the city as a whole. The affordable housing and new shops are essential to the people of Twerton, especially. As developments continue to spring up on the lower Bristol road it's an exciting new era for the city. I wholeheartedly support this application.

David Lehmann 15 St John's Road, Lower Weston, Bath, BA1 3BW, S 11/06/2019: This would be great to enhance Twerton's reputation and make it more attractive for buyers in Bath.

David Coles Bewdley House, 67 Prior Park Road, Widcombe, Bath, BA2 4NL, S 11/06/2019: This is a very positive development that would significantly improve the immediate area and bring major overall benefits to the City of Bath. It would sustain and provide the opportunity for significant progress for the football club, bring a real fillip to the local community and have the further benefit of providing much needed affordable housing.
It is a real opportunity for much needed inner city investment and revitalisation.
I totally support the application.

David James 31 Lascelles Avenue, Bathwick, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 6FB, S 11/06/2019: I wish to support this Planning Application which will see not only much needed investment into Twerton but ensure that the long standing Football Club survives as a community football club.
Adding over 300 students into Twerton is a good thing if controlled which this development does. Students will add significant value to Twerton, spending money in the local shops, restaurants, pubs, etc.
The student accommodation will be contained and 'policed' with no parking allocated which will reduce congestion. Thus unlike HMO's, the proposed student accommodation will be managed with onsite staff to ensure regulations are adhered to.
The community football club will not only enjoy a new grandstand which it certainly needs, but it will provide the club with financial stability enabling it to repay its debts. The Club will also provide new community benefits such as a bar, cafe, 3G plastic pitch, community rooms and a gym.
This development is a win win for both the local community and community club which I totally support.

Susan Skinner 12 Napier Road, Upper Weston, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA1 4LN S 11/06/2019: Twerton Park football stadium and the surrounding High Street area badly in need of updating. The actual football ground is becoming evermore dilapidated. The redevelopment of Twerton High Street will be of huge benefit to Twerton residents. The redevelopment of Bath City Football Club will secure the financial viability of the club by creating sporting facilities that can be used by the wider community. I support the application to enable the football club to move forward with 24/7 facilities 11/06/2019
Alastair Orchard 143 Monksdale Road, Moorlands, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 2JD S 11/06/2019: Fantastic NEWS that Bath City want to re develop and regenerate Twerton Park - great news that the football club look like a progressive all inclusive organisation .
Great for football in Bath and the local area
Great news for local people living in the Twerton area and also the future prosperity of the Twerton area and its inhabitants & local businesses !

Sarah Wilson 10 Twerton Farm Close, Twerton, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 1BL R 12/06/2019: Overall this seems like an excellent development for the area and would provide much needed regeneration for the area and support the development of the football club. My only concern regards parking given the accommodation for 356 students which could bring a high volume of cars to the area and create a transient population whereby local services are supported at variable levels. 12/06/2019
Elizabeth Cole Avon Park, Newbridge, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA1 3JP S 12/06/2019: Isupport the proposal of Bath City Football club for the redevelopment of Twerton Park and adjoining land. It will regenerate Twerton and provide excellent facilities for the local population. 12/06/2019
Nick Cox 45 Partis Way, Lower Weston, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA1 3QQ S 12/06/2019: Having bought my first house just off Twerton High Street in 1982, I now fell very sad walking along the street & seeing the awful state of the area with empty shops, broken glass & rubbish everwhere. This is real opportunity for the community in Twerton to become apart of Bath City and utilise the amazing facilities. This could be a real hub of the community that invests in health and well-being for community. I hope the plan is successful. 12/06/2019
Dina 15 Frederick House, Midland Road, Westmoreland, Bath, BA2 3GA, S 12/06/2019: Why wouldnt it be safe? The majority university are 18+ and are aware of their social responsibility towards the city of Bath. 12/06/2019

Sophia Soares 46 St James's Park, Lansdown, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA1 2SX S 13/06/2019: The redevelopment is vital to keep this community-owned club alive in Twerton. It will give players and staff the feel-good factor when turning up for work and, more importantly, it will create a safe, welcoming environment for local children and adults to visit and be part of. 13/06/2019

Nicky Tanner 7 Freeview Road, Twerton, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 1DS S 20/06/2019: I think Twerton needs something to upgrade what's there at the moment. Also I would like BCFC to remain at Twerton Park, and if this is the way forward, then it's better than Student Accommodation being built on the entire site! 20/06/2019

David Robinson 6-7 Ribblesdale Place, Preston, PR1 3NA S 13/06/2019: I would like to offer my support of this application as the development will not only be a great improvement for Bath City Football Club and its associated charities and youth groups but will also bring a positive impact in an area in need of investment.

Patrick Donovan Brook Cottage, Waterhouse Lane, Bath, BA2 7JA S 13/06/2019: The development represents a fantastic enhancement of the community facilities in Twerton 13/06/2019
Doug 1 Dorset Close, Twerton, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 3RF S 13/06/2019: I think this is a brilliant proposal that will revitalise Twerton and it’s community by offer an increased opportunity for jobs and commerce in the area, as well as providing much needed housing of a mixture of types. 13/06/2019
Katie Moon Freeview Road, Twerton, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 1DZ S 13/06/2019: The community have previously come together to ensure bath city football club was maintained.....this development would give back to that same community to ensure not only the clubs future but also enhance both the look and revenue flow within Twerton. 13/06/2019
Martin Sharratt The Coach House, Watery Lane, Twerton, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 1RL S 13/06/2019: Twerton High Street is in desperate need of the upgrade which this development will bring. Rather than selling up on leaving Bath FC is fulfilling its obligation as a long-term part of the local community but can only achieve this due to the financial benefits of including student housing. The higher footfall associated with having a body of students living on the high street will be a significant POSITIVE - helping to displace the less pleasant elements which are known to congregate in the dark and secluded areas behind the current row of shops. The council and police need to play their part so that this problem does not simply move to another area. The council needs to work to actively support the homeless and the police need to more actively target antisocial activities. 13/06/2019
Chris Hart 11 Ferndale Road, Lower Swainswick, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA1 6TD S 13/06/2019: Absolutely brilliant, great for the local community and our city. 13/06/2019
Tim Holmes 11 Ferndale Road, Lower Swainswick, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA1 6TD S 13/06/2019: What a fantastic opportunity for us as a city and especially the residents of Twerton and Whiteway. Why not go further and seek business sponsorship and develop the football ground further - Bath City could be playing in the Football League soon and the ambition to attract further support, will bring business to the city.
Maybe Dyson could support this as they do Bath Rugby.

John Flinn Bath Recreation Limited, Pulteney Mews, Bathwick, Bath, BA2 4DS, S 14/06/2019: Our organisation is a charitable company with the sole object of providing recreation (including sports) facilities in or near Bath. We have worked with the management of the football club, and particularly the charitable foundation, to support the enhanced provision for the local community. Through our wider view of the City it is clear that there is a great need for facilities in this particular area of the City that can be accessed by the local community and we will look to support the facilities and delivery of charitable and community activity that this development will enable.

Whilst the commercial element of this application sits outside of our remit it clearly supports the delivery of enhanced community facilities and will protect the site for generations to come. We strongly support the application as a vital improvement to the sporting and recreation provision within the City, and particularly this area of the City.

David Bartholomew 328 Bloomfield Road, Bloomfield, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 2PA S 11/06/2019: I am supportive of this application and not just because I support Bath City Football Club.
I think the proposals will improve the general wellbeing of the centre of Twerton. This part of Bath has been noticably under funded for a very long time and the overall scheme unlocks money to both improve the High Street and the facilities provided by the football club.
There have been over 900 football fields lost across the country in the last nine years and belatedly the important part fitness plays in the health of the population is being recognised. The club has ambitions to reach out to the community in this regard and this redevelopment will enable them to do so in a way that they are hampered from doing with the current outdated facilities.
Unlike many Bath residents I am not against purpose built student accommodation. I think that the developments along the Lower Bristol Road have rejuvenated the area and fully expect the proposed student accommodation to do so here and bring a vibrancy to a run down area. I hope that there will be a secondary benefit in that the more purpose built accommodation, the less pressure there will be on local housing to be converted into HMOs.

Philip Keller Century Casino, 6 Sawclose, City Centre, Bath, BA1 1EY, S 11/06/2019: I feel it would be of great benefit to have this application go through as it will modernise the whole immediate area and raise the profile of an integral part of the Bath Community. Bath City Football club would have a much needed injection of awareness and more supporters would generate more income for the area. 11/06/2019

John Swatton 37 Coronation Avenue, Southdown, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 2JT S 11/06/2019: This plan, if allowed to proceed would in my opinion re-vitalise the Twerton High Street area and I commend and support the application. 11/06/2019
Heather Thomas 18 Cabot Court , 69 Bath Road, Bristol, BS30 9BR S 11/06/2019: This new facility will not benefit the Twerton area/residents but the wider Bath Community. Been a long time coming. 11/06/2019
Lauren K 7 Lansdown Place West, Lansdown, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA1 5EZ S 11/06/2019: I support the development plans. They seem to take into consideration the needs of the people in the surrounding area as well as provide the club with a brighter future. 11/06/2019
Robert Derisz 4 Stanway, Button, Bristol, BS30 6JU S 11/06/2019: The city of Bath needs to support its football club. They seem to bend over backwards for the club, which uses an odd shaped ball. 11/06/2019
Charlie Dutton 37 Frederick Avenue, Peasedown St. John, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 8HZ R 12/06/2019: There is already a massive student population in this area, especially along Lower Bristol Road just 2 minutes from the stadium. Too many apartments within a small catchment is going to put too much of a strain on the local services and will be bad for the people of Twerton. If the council allow these apartments to be built in Twerton then it is clear they do not care for the people of Twerton. It is not difficult to see why allowing this is a bad idea. The only people who will benefit are the students and the football club, not the local residents. 12/06/2019

Chris Mercieca 82 Hillcrest Drive, Southdown, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 1HE O 26/06/2019: Although I do not live immediately next to the above proposed development I nonetheless wish to lodge an Objection to the proposal and its wider impact on the following grounds:
1. The major part of this development is to provide more accommodation for students and as such it is encouraging yet more students to this city which is already overrun with them to the point where the city and its surrounding residential areas is fast becoming a sprawling campus. It is out of control.

2. This latest proposed development is, like most other new accommodation facilities already constructed for the benefit of students, of a multi-story design and as such will present an overbearing environment for those living and working next or close to it. The impact of this and existing new developments for the sake of students is an increasing random obliteration of many of Bath’s beautiful skylines to the point where Bath is no longer the Bath as we have always known and enjoyed. Its UNESCO World Heritage status is gradually being eroded by buildings that are out of character and out of proportion with surrounding historic structures for which Bath is renowned besides its detrimental effect on residential property.

3. The current student overload is already adversely affecting the permanent residents of this city who through Council Tax actual pay for the facilities enjoyed by the massive student numbers. Public transport has become woefully inadequate but should measures be taken to improve this to compensate for even more students needing transport into town or to the universities, the road network will be put under further strain and pollution will rise even further despite the need for clean air zones. Simple pastimes like visiting favourite cafes within the city are no longer possible as they are full of students enjoying free wifi. Further attraction of students through the provision of yet more accommodation will only add to these and many other adverse issues.

4. Despite “No- car” policies on student blocks, this has proven to be unenforceable with students bringing and parking their cars in surrounding residential streets. This latest proposed development will simply add to this impossible situation which also leads to bad feeling when despite being able to finance and run a car, students are not required to pay Council Tax for the facilities they enjoy because they are deemed to be under financial strain. A shame the universities do not help from their massive profits.

David Hobdey St John's Foundation , 4 - 5 Chapel Court, City Centre, Bath, BA1 1SQ, S 26/06/2019: This is an important proposal for the community of Twerton. It will help revitalise this part of Bath and bring important new facilities to strengthen and improve the resilience of the community of Twerton. In this way it will begin to redress the shocking imbalance of the relative deprivation of Twerton with the more prosperous parts of Bath. 26/06/2019
Sheila Taylor 45 Lymore Avenue, Twerton, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 1BB S 27/06/2019: So pleased to hear that the football club and Greenacre Capital Ltd. are to refurbish Twerton High Street and surrounding area.
I used to so enjoy having a wander down the charming High Street but so many shops have closed in recent years – Co-op, Dorothy House, fish and chip shop, video store to name a few – it has become depressing and much like a smaller version of the centre of Bath. All in favour of this development.

Andrew Heath 78 Cedric Road, Lower Weston, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA1 3PB S 13/06/2019: The proposed development should definitely be approved as it meets many points in the local plan under consultation for Bath:

Meet housing needs arising from a changing and growing population - There is housing provided, and also student accommodation which will mean there is less pressure from students on existing housing (*including HMOs) elsewhere in the city - an activity supported in the local plan.

Plan for development that promotes health and well being - It will be a community sports hub which will support not only elite sport, but the change to a 3G astro will mean community groups will be able to use it without fear of pitch damage.

Deliver well connected places accessible by sustainable means of transport - It has a sustainable transport strategy associated with the development which is near to major public transport links.

Ensure the timely and efficient provision of infrastructure to support growing communities - Twerton is one of the more disadvantaged areas in Bath and needs infrastructure investment more than many others. It will be highly efficient in that an external company will be in effect providing the infrastructure that the area requires, and will be paying for it through the scheme rather than relying on local authority funding.

Andy Leakey 4 Hayes Drive, Wells, BA5 2GR S 13/06/2019: The correct next step to ensure the football club has a long term future in the heart of Twerton. Without this there is a real risk the club will cease to exist. This would be a real benefit to the area which is normally a neglected part of the city. The investment will help to create jobs and will open the door for a sustainable future for the club. 13/06/2019
James Allen 14 Woodland Grove, Claverton Down, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA2 7AT S 13/06/2019: I fully support this application, Bath is in grave need of investment into a community driven centre.

David Wheatley 108 Chandag Road, Keynsham, Bristol, Bath And North East Somerset, BS31 1QF S 26/06/2019: Good for the community, future growth outside the city centre which is key. With the volume of student accommodation becoming apparent, something for the residents is exactly what is required.

Development to the football ground has been long overdue and will only generate revenue to the area and a hopefully a family footfall wanting to watch the football and stay in the community before, after a game plus generate growth in mid week events.

I live in Keynsham and would certainly travel to twerton to use these facilities.

I am in favour of this exciting news.

Thanks

Cathy Bickley 9 Lyme Gardens, Newbridge, Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, BA1 3LW S 24/06/2019: If the Twerton Park site is not re-developed it will have to close and we will lose a vital focus for the Twerton area and the wider community in Bath. The football ground serves as a place for people to come together. As a relatively new supporter at the football ground, I have been made to feel welcome and I have enjoyed the relaxed, non-threatening atmosphere of the club. The new development will allow the site to provide added services to the community including a re-vitalised shopping area, increased sport opportunities for people of all ages and an improved venue for local people to hold events. This chance to support Twerton and the surrounding area should not be missed. It is of exceptional benefit to all. 24/06/2019
