Cycling and Walking Infrastructure Information Pack Consultation – BPF members


Len as been able to update the consultation document on the direction of the information pack which is due to go public in March.

You may not have seen it for a while – so here is a “pre-view” of the document.

There is a short window of opportunity for comments, especially where mistakes have occurred.
Any comments on mistakes etc welcome before Friday 4th March.
Improvements include a clearer presentation of issues and more use of graphics to get points across.
Once the formal consultation has been launched there is of course the chance to comment again.

Obviously, it is of use to groups who are currently dealing with cycling issues now as well as in the future – eg: No 2 Bus corridor A37/A4018 Improvements.

Frome Gateway


Bristol City Council, in partnership with local residents, businesses, and landowners, are working on a project to guide the long-term transformation of the land either side of the River Frome in St Jude’s, known as Frome Gateway.

Their stated aspirations are to create new homes, jobs and public spaces that better meet the needs of the city and the local community.

The area includes ‘Riverside Park’ which runs between the M32 and the River Frome

Pete Insole has put together an excellent story map with the history of the area.

More details at https://fromegateway.co.uk/

This survey will close on 31 March 2022
