An issue we can't just park

The long awaited meeting to discuss ways to tackle the challenge of parking and traffic in Bishopston and St Andrews attracted a good crowd of concerned people on May 12. 

Hosted by Bristol West MP Thangam Debbonaire at the Kings Centre, the meeting heard strong views and constructive ideas were debated, all to help improve the congestion, safety, and occasional gridlock experienced locally. 

Can a solution be be found? Ms Debbonaire said: “It was a productive meeting. People with different views and strongly held opinions worked together really constructively in a positive atmosphere to come up with good suggestions and compromises. 

“I’ll continue to work with all ward councillors to feed back residents’ views to the council and to support the people of Bristol West in getting the better, safer streets they want.”
