The decision not to continue with the provision of cafe & toilets at Bitterwell lake was a unanimous decision by all councillors present. The decision was made purely on a financial basis.
Although South Glos council had approved the planning application for the building what many people do not seem to appreciate is that the investment for the project was coming solely from Westerleigh Parish Council.
Unfortunately once estimates had been received from contractors the proposed costs were far in excess of the original budget.
It was felt that the Parish Council could not justify spending so much of parishioners money on this facility.
