Bath City Centre Security consultation update

Between November 2020 and January 2021 we consulted with you on proposals to permanently strengthen on-street security within Bath City Centre’s busiest streets and spaces.

The proposed scheme combines:

  • Vehicle access restrictions within the city centre’s most crowded streets.
  • Strengthened secure vehicle access points controlled/operated by the Council’s CCTV control room
  • New purpose designed reinforced static and sliding protective bollards and furniture

Consultation results

More than 500 consultation responses were received and these have now been collated and considered, along with the recommendations from an independent accessibility adviser. You can now read a summary of the outcomes of the accessibility study, as well as the summary of feedback in the consultation feedback report, ahead of the final decision that will be made at Cabinet later in the year.
