This page will be used to share updates and submissions that the association has made to relevant consultations.
In Autumn 2016 the City ran several important consultations – on its noise strategy, on a review of its licensing regime, and the first stage of a consultation on its new Local Plan (the planning regime).
The BA organised a meeting of the relevant officers and local common councillors to seek some joined up thinking between these City policies. At the meeting we voiced the problems caused by noise and disturbance, particularly at night and during the evenings from bars and open roof terraces and of the wearing effects of constant construction work. In our formal responses we sought some protections for residential areas, for example no construction work on Saturdays on sites next to residential areas.
In January 2017 the BA responded to a consultation on the City’s Health and Wellbeing Strategy.
