Saltford Youth Service 

 The Parish Council is continuing to support the provision of the weekly mobile youth service in the village, in partnership with B&NES Council.  A new six month Working Together Agreement with B&NES Council for 2015-16 specifies that the first three months (April to June) will be 50% funded by Saltford Parish Council and 50% by B&NES Youth Connect, and the second three months service (July to September) will be 75% funded by Saltford Parish Council and 25% by B&NES Youth Connect.

Saltford's 20 mph speed limit

B&NES Council’s 20 mph Speed Limit Order came into operation on 17 April 2015, meaning that it is prohibited to drive a motor vehicle at a speed exceeding 20 miles per hour on all roads in Saltford except the A4, which remains 30 mph.


Road surfaces have suffered due to the wet winter. A pothole is defined as a sharp edged depression in the carriageway greater than 30mm deep. To assist B&NES in repairing these as quickly as possible, please report any potholes to Council Connect tel. 01225 394041 or online via their Report It facility.
Parish Councillors are also putting together a list to send to B&NES. 

Longwood Lane – construction site

The Construction Management Plan for Saltford Golf Club’s planning application requires the developer to make good any damage to the passing bays created on Longwood Lane, and to not damage the public highway.

Bath & North East Somerset (B&NES) Council, as the planning authority, is responsible for ensuring that the contractor fulfils these obligations. 

Any issues with the condition of Longwood Lane should be addressed to B&NES Council Connect

 Environment Agency information about river levels on the Avon at Saltford

In 2010, the Parish Council sponsored the development of a parish plan to find out what was important to the community in Saltford. Members of the Parish Council are now participants in the Parish Plan Implementation Group, which is tasked with implementing the actions identified in the Parish Plan.
