Darren updates on Stoke Lodge Fence

MP for Bristol North West, Darren Jones has shared his concerns with Bristol City Council following recent news reports that a fence at Stoke Lodge will not require the council’s consent and that the school plans to progress these works imminently.

Darren has been working closely with key community leaders and local councillors and has previously written to residents, the council and Cotham School about Stoke Lodge alongside chairing several meetings (designed to broker a compromise so both the community and the school can use the site) over the summer.

Darren also met local residents, and separately with staff from Cotham School, to discuss the school’s use of Stoke Lodge green space which (the school propose) would include the erection of a fence, alongside a new changing room/ pavilion building.

Darren said:

“Alongside members of the local community and councillors, I have shared my concerns with the council regards the article published in the Bristol Post on Friday 30th November 2018.

This information came as a total surprise to members of the community (as well as myself and local councillors) who had met with council staff that day to discuss their on-going concerns about the site.

I have just been advised by the council’s Director – Legal and Democratic Services this situation has been escalated to the council’s planning team with a response expected this week – I will update on this matter as soon as possible.

I would like to take the opportunity to advise, I will continue to do what I can to support the community. Equally, I would like to thank those residents who attended my Mince Pie Politics coffee morning in Stoke Bishop on Saturday morning to discuss their concerns with me”.
