Last chance to give views on City Centre Development and Delivery Plan

Last chance to give views on City Centre Development and Delivery Plan

People have until Monday 23 May to give their views on ways to revitalise the centre of Bristol.

With the deadline fast approaching, Bristol City Council is looking for suggestions on how to make the city centre more family-friendly, safer, healthier and greener. 

 

Those who live, work in or travel to the city centre are encouraged to give their feedback to guide the initial stages of a new plan for this area, which will build on the One City Plan and the City Centre Framework and help to set a vision for our city centre up to 2050. 

The council is particularly encouraging people from Brislington, Bishopsworth, Henbury and Brentry, Southville, Hartcliffe and Withywood, St George, Filwood, Lockleaze and Stockwood to take part, as so far the lowest response rates have been from these areas. It is also appealing for more young people to share their views.

Mayor of Bristol Marvin Rees said “We want the city centre to be a place that everyone in our city wants to visit and spend time in. In order to do this, we need your help and big ideas about potential long-term changes to buildings, spaces and streets from Marlborough Street and the St James Barton roundabout in the north, to Castle Park in the south, Bond Street South in the east and St Augustine’s Parade in the west.

“If you have suggestions for the area around The Galleries, Fairfax Street, Callowhill Court, Haymarket as well as the former Debenhams store and St James Barton roundabout, we’d like to hear from you. There is still time for you to add your comments to our interactive map and complete the short survey.”

The Plan will cover a large area of central Bristol, and will consider a number of key themes including:

  • character and use – how our city centre might look, feel and be used in the future
  • economy and skills – how to provide a range of opportunities for jobs and business
  • housing – how to make our city centre an attractive place to live
  • movement – how to make our city safe and accessible for everyone
  • streets, parks and open spaces – how to provide the quality public spaces needed to support healthy, active communities
  • nature – how to preserve and enhance biodiversity and benefit from nature’s positive impact on our city
  • climate change - how redevelopment in our city centre can support the council’s aim to be carbon neutral and climate resilient

The deadline for this first round of informal engagement is Monday 23 May 2022. To read about the issues the City Centre Development and Delivery Plan will address, add comments to an interactive map and fill in a short survey go to www.citycentrebristol.co.uk
