Go ahead for East Bristol Liveable Neighbourhood trial

East Bristol Liveable Neighbourhood trial will be taken forward following the statutory consultation, meaning that we can go ahead with plans to make Barton Hill and parts of Redfield and St George safer, healthier and more sustainable.

We ran a statutory consultation on East Bristol Liveable Neighbourhood from 29 January to 20 February 2024. Thank you to everyone who responded. We have reviewed all the comments and have reported them to local councillors, the Cabinet Member for Transport and the Mayor of Bristol. Read the Objection Report.

The council has decided to take the East Bristol Liveable Neighbourhood trial ahead in full. This means that the scheme will be implemented as proposed in the trial scheme map.

Council elections are taking place in Bristol on Thursday 2 May 2024. To comply with pre-election rules, we will not be announcing anything new to do with the project until after the election. We will continue some limited activities, such as:

  •  Organising and coordinating the implementation of trial measures
  • Offering active travel support to individuals, businesses, schools and community groups in the area
  • Limited engagement with already established networks 
  • Installing cycle hangars and organising the sign-up process – the first four of the cycle hangars will be installed next week on Holmes Street, Avonvale Road, Victoria Avenue/Witchell Road and Diamond Road
  • Answering questions emailed to liveableneighbourhoods@bristol.gov.uk

 The trial scheme will be installed later this year following a tender process for the works.

Thank you again to everyone who has engaged with the project. We will be in touch again after the local elections. Don’t forget to make sure you have registered to vote.
