Today we submitted our response to the Bristol Central Area Plan. It seemed incredible to us that Bristol’s planners could come up with a plan that makes hardly any mention of cycling and seems to have been produced independently of other departments, such as Transport’s, plans. It’s really time that we had more cohesion within Bristol City Council – hopefully that’s something that an independepent Mayor can achieve! What we really need is an overall vision for Bristol so that we stop arguing about individual elements of the plan, such as RPZ, and can appreciate the whole picture and the end game!
