Identify our Green Spaces to keep them.
Bristol City Council is keen to protect our green spaces. They have initiated a Call for Sites – asking communities for ideas to help plan their neighbourhoods. "We are asking communities to take a fresh look at how land is used in local neighbourhoods and seeking ideas for new and better uses of land or buildings across the city".
If you would like Bristol City Council to consider a site for inclusion in the Site Allocations plan for a specific use (or uses) tell them about it here. http://www.bristol.gov.uk/ccm/content/Environment-Planning/Planning/planning-policy-documents/bristol-development-framework/site-allocations/site-allocations---call-for-sites.en
The consultation ends 19th December.
They have mapped all their parks. St Andrews Park is in the Redland, Cotham, Bishopston Neighbourhood Partnership area, scroll down this page to NP6 http://www.bristolparksforum.org.uk/parks1.htm
If you are from another area, you can find the full list of maps here. http://www.bristolparksforum.org.uk/parks1.htm
Allotments are not shown on the map yet, but I am assured that all those in our area are included in the protected areas.
Richard Fletcher has organised a special briefing for BPF members at the Council House, College Green at 7-00pm on Thursday 11th December. A note from Richard about the briefing can be seen here: http://www.bristolparksforum.org.uk/briefing111208.pdf
This is a great chance to find out how these processes fit together and how you can have your say to help protect Bristol's Green Space from development. Please attend the session if you possibly can or ask someone else from your group to go along. Let Richard know if you are going to attend ( Richard.Fletcher@bristol.gov.uk ) so that he can ensure that there is enough room.
The Bristol Parks website has more information about Area Green Space Plans and the latest timetable is here http://www.bristol.gov.uk/parkstrategy
