TTADRA Committee Meeting
Turnberrie's Community Centre, Thornbury
Thornbury Town and District Residents' Association hold regular committee meetings at Turnberries. This week it is in the Kington Room at 7.00 on Wednesday 19th January 2022.
We are actively looking to attract new members and if you feel that you have any time, skills or support to offer we would be only too pleased for you to come along. Ideally please drop a line to the Secretary in advance in case we need to book a larger room.
Decision Meeting regarding Funding for Thornbury High Street on 28th January:
TTADRA say "There is a meeting of West of England Combined Authority (WECA) on Friday 28th January 2022 at which South Gloucestershire Council’s (SGC) Business Case for Thornbury High Street will come up for discussion and decision.
There are four voting members including Dan Norris – Metro Mayor for West of England, Toby Savage – Leader SGW, Marvin Rees – Mayor of Bristol and Kevin Guy – Leader Bath and North East Somerset Council.
Dan Norris is the Chair and Toby Savage is the Vice Chair.
The Residents Association have kept Dan Norris informed of events and are hopeful that he will not allow funding of the controversial SGC project on the basis that there has not been Full, Fair and Respectful Consultation.
We should do everything we can to ensure he is aware of the strength of public feeling and has the ammunition to counter the SGC Business Case.
You will be aware that he spoke at the two Public Meetings in the Leisure Centre.
The public has an opportunity to send in a written Statement ahead of the meeting.
We suggest that you write by this coming weekend.
We request that you and ideally a few neighbours/friends send a short statement saying that you believe SGC have not carried out full, fair and respectful consultation and giving a couple of reasons to back that up.
You are also able to pose two Questions at the same time.
We understand that responses to the questions will be given before the meeting.
Please send an email to email@example.com (for the attention of Ian Hird) and firstname.lastname@example.org (for the attention of Dan Norris).
Since the meeting will be held on a weekday afternoon in Central Bath it is very likely that many people will find it difficult to attend.
So, this is possibly your final opportunity to make your voice heard by sending in a Statement and Questions.
Please take the time to send an email – it could make all the difference.
The Residents Association has endeavoured to post regular news updates on the website below – there are now 16 including 5 in the past week.
If you are scratching your head wondering what to include in your statement you will find lots of information there!
If you are thinking of attending the meeting I would be grateful if you would drop a line to the Secretary by email below so that we can coordinate our responses."
