Neil Harrison said after the recent public meeting "I think a Cumulative Impact Area for Gloucester Road is a great idea, having seen the one in Whiteladies Road operate and having had expereince using it to fight off license applications that are inappropriate for a heavily residential area. A key component to making it work is residents taking action themselves about how their area develops and it seems to me that there is plenty of enthusiasm in the Bishopston Society to make this happen."
