Councillor welcomes new ‘Foxhill Charter’

Combe Down’s Conservative Councillor Bob Goodman has welcomed the publication of the draft Foxhill Charter.

The draft charter has been produced jointly by Curo and B&NES Council, with the support of the Homes and Communities Agency, and sets out a shared ambition that will help shape regeneration plans for the area.  The charter has been produced after the Council and Curo successfully secured £313,000 of funding from central Government to support housing delivery in the Foxhill area.

Residents are now being asked to give their views on the draft charter, which can viewed and commented on at:

Cllr Bob Goodman (Cons, Combe Down) said:

“I’m very pleased that the draft Foxhill Charter has been produced, which proposes a shared ambition for the future of the area. When I first became a Councillor last year there was a lot of concern among the community about Curo’s plans for the area. Whilst there are still issues which need to be addressed going forward, a lot of progress has been made over the past year in bringing Curo and the residents together, with careful discussions between the community and all parties to ensure the voice of residents is heard.

“I would encourage all residents in the area to get involved in the consultation and give their views on this draft charter.”
