Have your say on the future of Bristol

June 22 2017

What should Bristol’s future look like? What should we do about traffic and air pollution? What do we need from our future houses, communities and neighbourhoods?

 What should Bristol’s future look like? What should we do about traffic and air pollution? What do we need from our future houses, communities and neighbourhoods? 

 Join in a special event to find out more about air pollution, our health and the future, and to have a say in deciding how Bristol should tackle the problem: 

• Monday 10 July 7.30-9.30pm

• St Michael and All Angels, 160A Gloucester Rd, Bristol BS7 8NT 

Are electric cars the answer? Do we need to dig up all the roads? How might walking alternatives work? What about better trains or even trams, Yo bikes…..? 

This event is a collaboration between ClairCity, the Bishopston Society and Sustainable Bishopston. This follows the recent public meeting on air pollution, and is part of the resulting Clean Air Bishopston campaign in development. 

 On behalf of the organisers, Nick Plant said: "We want to hear your views on these and other issues. During the event there will be an opportunity to learn more about the links between air pollution, climate change and our health, and give your views on the long-term vision for Bishopston and the whole of Bristol. You can help shape the agenda for our neighbourhood and the city."

 This meeting is part of a major European project “Citizen-led air pollution reduction in cities” (ClairCity) in which residents get to influence the long-term future of their city. The project includes UWE Bristol and Bristol City Council as partners. 

 You’ll be working alongside citizens’ groups in five other European cities which are also members of the project consortium. For more information please see www.claircity.eu/bristol
