Welcome to the Bath Road Connect My Street Scheme

Connect Streets is all about local people taking ownership of the places that really matter to them and having a say in how they should be developed.

About Connect Streets

We are really excited about getting our first Connect My Street Project off the ground and want as many people as possible to be involved.

Connect Streets is all about local people taking ownership of the places that really matter to them and having a say in how they should be developed. It’s also about how our own behaviors (such as how we travel everyday) impact on the wider environment.

Cheltenham Council initially gave us a £5000 Community Pride Grant to help improve the Bath Road. This site will help you keep in touch with the development of the project so far and you can see how we are going through the posts below.
