ClairCityThe challenge of cleaning up our air was faced head-on at a lively Bishopston workshop recently, with local people in the driving seat in place of experts.

Would it be harder to introduce a zero emission zone or extend 20 mph speed limits? Would Bishopston benefit from more park and ride schemes? Could pedestrians be given priority over road space? Would free buses be better than introducing a vehicle scrapping scheme?

These were but a few of the knotty questions Bishopston residents were asked to discuss and give their views on, in an intense series of activities, which followed an initial awareness-raising exercise that touched on the ideas raised at a previous Bishopston Society public meeting.

ClairCity Logo AW 08What should Bristol’s future look like? What should we do about traffic and air pollution? What do we need from our future houses, communities and neighbourhoods?

Are electric cars the answer? Do we need to dig up all the roads? How might walking alternatives work? What about better trains or even trams, Yo bikes…..?

Join in a special event to find out more about air pollution, our health and the future, and to have a say in deciding how Bristol should tackle the problem.
