THE findings of an independent review concerning the changes to Clevedon's seafront and Hill Road are due to be shared at a public meeting this month.

The meeting will be held at Christchurch, Chapel Hill, on Monday, November 20 from 6pm.

The review has been completed by transport design and engineering experts AECOM and has considered issues raised by local people and businesses as well as the professional views gathered through scheme audits.

This includes traffic concerns and the impact the changes have had on local businesses.

AECOM has prepared a report, the findings of which will be outlined for members of the public and which will be presented to North Somerset Council.

The next steps will be considered at a meeting of the council's Executive on Wednesday, December 6. This will be open to the public.

Cllr Hannah Young, North Somerset Council's executive member with responsibility for active travel, said: "Local people had the opportunity to contribute to the review at two public meetings, through an online survey and at a public drop-in event.

"A series of sessions for special interest groups were held and information about the review was also sent directly to residents and businesses on Hill Road, The Beach and surrounding roads.

"We made a commitment to share the findings of the review publicly and we'll be doing this on November 20. The report will also be available to read online the same day. We will be considering the report recommendations carefully and setting out the next steps in due course."

Speaking about previous meetings, Cllr Mike Bell, leader of the council, said: "It’s important that everyone with experience of the scheme gets the chance to be heard. We will make sure this can happen.” 

Tickets will be sold on a first-come, first-serve basis in order to manage capacity.

These can be purchased from Clevedon Library or online from TicketSource from 9.30am on Friday, November 10.
