With just two days to go, we want to hear from as many people and community groups across Bristol as possible. In particular, we encourage citizens who we haven’t heard as much from, including people under 25, black and minority ethnic citizens and those living in the light shaded areas of the map.
Share your voice today. The Your City Our Future survey closes on Wednesday 9 September 2020. Take part online: https://bristol.citizenspace.com/bristol-city-council/your-city-our-future/

Mayor of Bristol Marvin Rees shares an update on Bristol response to coronavirus. Key updates:

1. As of yesterday evening 1,526 reported Covid cases in Bristol, 41 cases over the past seven days. This isa slow rise in the wrong direction and a cause for concern rather than alarm. There have been over 63,000 tests since March and a walk-in testing centre opened in Netham Park in east Bristol this week. If you think you have Covid-19 book a test, either at home, at regional test centre (e.g. Bristol Airport) or nearest walk-in centre. Please continue to behave responsibly to protect yourself and others and practice good hygiene and social distancing - these are incredibly important.

2. Over the next two weeks almost 60,000 children will return to school in Bristol, which is vital for children’s education and wellbeing. Anxiety about children going back to school is normal and we’ve supported schools to make their own arrangements and decisions on how children should return safely. Parents/carers should read up on the measures schools have in place and avoid other parents/carers when dropping off/picking up. Walk or cycle/scoot rather than drive. If your child develops Covid-19 symptoms while at school, they should tell a teacher and go home. Parents and carers should arrange for them to be tested.

3. To help with the transition back to school we’ve launched a new hub of resources available online - www.bristol.gov.uk/backtoschool.

4. We continue to see people gathering in unsafe ways, with unauthorised raves and meets putting public health at risk. These gatherings often lack social distancing and measures to prevent the spread of COVID. People are potentially spreading the virus amongst themselves and taking it back into their communitiesWe’ll keep working with police to prevent these from happening where possible, but please act sensibly and remain patient.

City Centre Cumulative Impact Assessment Consultation - Bristol - Citizen Space

We've started a consultation to establish if a Cumulative Impact Assessment (CIA) in Bristol city centre is necessary, and we welcome your feedback.

Cumulative Impact Assessments are used in areas with a large number of licensed venues, such as pubs, clubs and late night food takeaways, where lots of people gather at the same time.

These assessments make it more difficult for venues in that area to apply for a new license, extend operating hours or increase size; unless they can show there would be no adverse effect on crime, disorder and public nuisance.

The draft Cumulative Impact Assessment mirrors the previous city centre Cumulative Impact Area, but now excludes Broadmead.

Going back to school, work or college? 🎒💼 Walk or cycle for short journeys if you can.

Some city roads have changed to give priority to 🚶🚲 & 🚌 to cut pollution & support social distancing

Bristol Bridge, Baldwin St & Union St are closed to through traffic - but you can still access those streets via other routes

New bike lanes on Lewins Mead & Park Row mean traffic is down to one lane & we’ve pedestrianised the Old City area and widened pavements across Bristol too

    Dear Bristol, tomorrow I'll be travelling back home and I'm so sad to leave you because I fell in love with you. I felt at ease from the very first moment thanks to your fantastic human community. I found warmth, tolerance and solidarity within your beautiful streets and buildings and parks and churches. I'll be missing the bell's tolling and their profound echoing all around. I'm leaving with the regret that I hadn't had the chance to stay because believe me I'd have been extremely happy to... But apparently if you're 49 like me, no matter if hardworking, it's a bit difficult (using an understatement) to find a job. I'll be back, I promise and that's not a threat ❤ Cheers Bristolians, you're one of a kind!
    Didn't there used to be traffic lights at the junction of CIty Road and Brigstoke Road? As I usually come down (or up) Brigstoke Road if i am in that area I used to only have to stop half the time and not have to look for trafic coming down CIty Road and sometimes not even have to slow down at all. The council seem intent in devaluing and destroying my life in the wonderful ciity with everything they do. I was sort if consolling my self that at least they had improved access to Baldwin Street from the bottom of Park Street (even though I cold no longer get from James Barton onto Baldwin street to avoid the mele on Temple Way) but I have just got my car back after far too long getting repaired to discover they have made that into a bus lane so i can't go down Baldwin Street from that side of town AT ALL :-( Sheesh. I havn't seen a bus on Baldwin Street since the mid 90's and all the bus stops that used to be there have been consumed by cycle tracks. What the frel is going on? Is the council full of comlete demented imbeciles these days or what? Shesh cubed.
    you look like some caricatures
    So you're censorng me now are you BCC? That is not very democratic is it? I just posted something here and it seems to have been deleted. Sheesh.
    BCC - someone needs to clean up Mina Road Park opposite St Werburgh's Park Nursery school asap please.
    Hi everyone! I am a year 12 student doing my A-levels in Geography. Due to covid-19 I was unable to collect data needed for my coursework. Id be very grateful if anyone could spare a few minutes and complete my questionnaires. https://forms.gle/PxyFdfoMxEH9BBD48 https://forms.gle/crrJDNM1Nzhvqjbx9
    So apparently I need a a 2wk "noise diary" before anything can be done about my nuisance neighbours. My mum has been asked to do these before and STILL nothing is done, so what's the point? Not to mention it doesn't help now. Then the patronising agent says to talk to my doctor and places for people. I have and P4P do NOTHING. We have had police round multiple times because my neighbours cause trouble, drugs, fights ect. I am on the list to be moved but i'm in band four. This place is not appropriate for me for a number of reasons: my physical health is only one of them. These constant issues with neighbours and the harassment I get is another. I finally loose it and call today and they basically go "not our problem". They don't care about the effect this is having on a vunerable, disabled person. They say they want proof, but they don't take the diaries as proof when my mother has done them, they say it's your word against theirs. They only do them so it looks like they're sorting out problems. Why not just send an officer to check now while it's happening? Because then they really would have to do something. Despicable and disgusting. Another reason to not trust the gov (as if we needed anymore). They have no compassion and no will power to do anything. They claim poverty (but the councillors still get nice wages), and claim red tape (but vanity projects go through no prob). It's appalling. I have a right to live in peace and safety, in a home that is safe and comfortable. But I don't have any of this. Am I worth less than anyone else? Apparently. I have a migraine that will last days now, and my apd is all over the place. My anxiety is through the roof. The stress is driving me mad. If I hurt myself or worse, the council would be all over it with sorry and how did this happen and other bs. Why should people have to go that far before anyone will listen? How can we allow people to be treated like this?
    Anyone remember Service9 a charity which used to help people with mental/learning disabilities in Bristol in the 1970's ? I can remember going out to Purdown hospital on a Monday night, and Glenside on a Tuesday night for patients discos.
    Is there anyone on here who used to play football for the Bristol Council team in the Bristol and District League between 1975 and 1980 ?
    http://chng.it/SqQbVQxNH2 Good Morning :) Can you let me know who I need to contact to put up a Wildlife sign. I have support from the community. Thank you
    Given how fast a lot of cyclists go on the Bristol to Bath cycle path and in order to keep everyone safer,, might it be a good idea to have sings that encourage pedestrians to walk into oncoming traffic? I ask because I grew up in the country and was taught that it is safer to walk against the direction of traffic so that you could see it as it came towards you. Just a thought.
