Recently taken over by Boots.As I found out recently there is no longer a rota list of duty chemists open outside normal hours available in the windows. The official advice is to call NHS Direct on 0845 4647. No longer a 10 second glance at the list – now a diagnosis and lots of questions. I ended up calling the chemist from the web starting with those closest until one answered.

Footpath alongside the railway line

A new Act of Parliament requires us to register, or lose, all footpaths which are assumed to have right of way. The footpath alongside the railway line by Bathford Bridge, on land owned by Network Rail has, after an application by Bathford Parish Council, been registered by BANES. There is, however, a 42 day window for an appeal so the registration is not immediate. If Network Rail do appeal, there will be a public enquiry. The Parish Council believes that the path is well used and should be a public footpath and will give evidence to this effect at any enquiry. The very thorough decision documents are available: Railway Footpath – Decision Notice Railway Footpath – Decision Report


Essential roadworks on A4 London Road and A36 Cleveland Place

Road users are being advised about essential roadworks and improvements taking place during the next few months in Bath’s A4 London Road and A36 Cleveland Place.   Work will start from February 19 and motorists are encouraged to plan for longer journey times than usual or use alternative routes.   London Road/Cleveland Place junction will be resurfaced together with the rebuilding of the Cleveland Bridge toll house, which was damaged in an accident last year.   Gas works are also being carried out at this time to avoid further disruption again later in the year.   Councillor Mark Shelford (Conservative, Lyncombe) cabinet member for Transport and Environment, said: “These are essential works and unfortunately there will be delays for motorists but we ask you to be patient with us while the work is carried out. Extended working hours will be in operation in order that the works can be completed as quickly as possible and to minimise disruption.”   The work programme is as follows:   19th February for up to 12 days: Wales & West gas works in London Road near its junction with Thomas Street. The work will result in a lane closure.  The lane restrictions will need to be in place 24 hours because of an open excavation.   5th March for up to two weeks: repairs
