    • Pot hole
      Article: Jul 23, 2018

      Gloucestershire's pothole plague isn't as bad as it might appear, in part because "Cyclists don't know what a pothole is", according to the Cabinet Member for Highways, Cllr Smith.

      According to the charity, 'We Are Cycling UK', Gloucestershire is 121st out of 214 authorities for filling in potholes in England, Scotland and Wales. This puts the county in the third quartile for pothole repairs, with less than one in five reported potholes confirmed as repaired in the last year.

These calls come after the Conservative Cabinet member for waste confirmed, at last week's council meeting in response to a question from Liberal Democrat Cllr Jeremy Hilton, that "waste delivered to the facility will not receive any further sorting of recyclate."

      Petition: Jun 12, 2018

      We the undersigned call upon the CEO of Lloyds Banking Group to reconsider the closure of the Bishop's Cleeve branch. This branch serves a local community and is particularly important for older people, local businesses and voluntary clubs and organisations. Following the closure of the Winchcombe branch there is no alternative except the trek into Cheltenham High Street. A mobile banking service is simply insufficient and Nat West in Bishops Cleeve has just closed. Banks must remember they serve the community as well as their shareholders.
