Have your say on relocation of Temple Street bus stops

Traders and residents will be able to have their say at Keynsham Town Council’s next meeting on plans to move Temple Street’s bus stops during the centre’s regeneration.Temple Street

An initial move to relocate the stops from outside 1-11 Temple Street to 17-27 Temple Street resulted in an outcry from traders, who feared the loss of parking and buses pulling up outside their premises could hit their trade.

One business owner told us in August: “The loss of trade from people simply driving past because of lack of parking will be substantial.”

Now a second option has been put forward by B&NES Council - further along Temple Street, away from the shops, and outside the boundary of Riverside House and St Keyna Court.

The town council will debate the options at its meeting on October 16, where residents and traders can make their views known. Councillors will then choose their preferred option.

The Highways authority has been consulted on both options. Talks have also been held with bus companies to redirect some services to stop in Ashton Way.

The town council meeting will be held on October 16, at 7.30pm, in the Council Chamber, Third Floor, North Block, Riverside, Keynsham.

Anyone wishing to speak at the meeting should contact the town clerk on 0117 986 8683 or email townclerk@keynsham-tc.gov.uk.
