The Bathampton Meadows Alliance is a local community affiliation, of individuals and representatives of other bodies and groups, including Parish Councils and pressure groups. It is a not-for-profit and non-political group. We came together after 80 people spoke out against plans for a 1400-space park and ride car park on Bathampton Meadows at the B&NES full council meeting of November 2015. We have worked as a voluntary group ever since and welcome new members.

We've been campaigning for over a year now - but a date (25th Jan 2017) has now been set by the council to select a site. They are now proposing Site B, or Site F if B is not feasible - so both options are Bathampton Meadows.

This is of huge concern given that recently the council admitted at a Statutory Planning Inspection that the £10 million P&R would not reduce congestion or pollution, despite claims it would in earlier consultation leaflets and in a report to elected Councillors following the public consultation.

Should we need to fund a judicial review then we will launch a specific campaign that builds on the many pledges already received. In the meantime, we continue to fundraise to meet ongoing costs, these include: leaflets and other campaigning materials, expert advice and targeted advertising.

Please donate if you are able to.

So we now know that B&NES intend to proceed with Site B i.e. New Leaf Farm, but if they cannot get approval for the required access road from Highways England and persuade New Leaf Farm to sell (within a 'reasonable period' thought to be weeks not months), then they will proceed with Site F.

The battle is not over!

Next step is Placemaking - consultation closes Mid Feb.
