Three new consultations have been opened today by Bristol City Council, ahead of changes which could be made to streets in Bristol early next year, paid for by the DfT’s “Active Travel Fund”. These early stage consultations have been opened for three streets:
- Cotham Hill, Cotham
- Princess Victoria Street, Clifton
- St Marks Road, Easton
There are great opportunities on these streets to create better environments for residents and businesses whilst improving conditions for sustainable transport. The Liveable Bristol campaign has much more information on how this can work.
At Bristol Cycling Campaign, we will be preparing a formal response to all three of these consultations. In the meantime, we would recommend that everyone who lives in or visits these areas fills in the consultation survey, asking the council to prioritise an environment with fewer cars and more space for walking and cycling.
The consultations are available on the Citizenspace website and close on 17th January 2021.
