This road is unadopted. Rather than being resurfaced and becoming a short-cut for parents at nearby Kingswood School, it has been allowed to deteriorate into something resembling a war zone. Only the most rugged of vehicles can now pass along it and it can only be a matter of time before the Post Office refuses to deliver to properties here, as it has done elsewhere in similar cases. One solution would be for the Council to take over all the land that is not required for access and sell it with planning permission to a developer, since it's clear that local residents don't need or want a thoroughfare here. As property prices in this area are among the highest in Bath, this might prove quite lucrative.
