The City Council has recently consulted on the idea of pedestrianising the Old City of Bristol. We wholeheartedly support this proposal which has the potential to encourage a much better use of this valuable historic area and complement the appeal of St. Nicholas’s Market, attracting more small and local businesses.
The plans remain at a very early stage but envisage closure to all traffic except for early morning and late afternoon delivery windows. The plans do not yet include any infrastructure or enforcement proposals. We have asked the Council to ensure that sufficient funding is allocated for a fully worked scheme. The following link has the full response.
