CAZ 1 Reaction to BCC Clean Air Zone plans From The Bishopston Society’s Clean Air Bishopston team 12th November 2019

Summary: We are pleased a CAZ policy has finally been produced. But we’re concerned that it is not going to be effective enough if it doesn't consider the wider problems of needing to seriously reduce traffic levels, deal with parking problems and improve public transport and safe cycling facilities.

 At the AGM held on 1st October, a motion was passed recognising that, due to several key people stepping down from their committee roles, the Society’s work is no longer viable. Accordingly, a Special General Meeting was proposed to consider a winding-up resolution.

This Special Meeting will now be held on Monday 18th November at 7:30pm at the Friends Meeting House, 300 Gloucester Road BS7 8PD.

As agreed at the AGM, certain “critical friends” have also been invited to the meeting. This is to enable voting TBS members to take into account some independent advice on any alternatives which might lead to a continuation of the Society’s work, or part of it.

Members are urged to attend the meeting to discuss and vote on this very important matter, whether you believe that the Society has run its course, and it is time to put out the lights, or that its work needs to continue.

A "think piece" including text of the AGM motion has been published with all the details, including how you can respond to this crisis: click here to download or view it (PDF format).

sus transportThe Bishopston Society public meeting at 7.30 pm on Tuesday Oct 1st 2019, at Horfield Quaker Meeting (300 Gloucester Rd BS7 8PD), will consider Sustainable Transport in Bishopston.

Increasing motor traffic in our area, with its concomitant serious parking problems in many Bishopston and St Andrews streets, Gloucester Road’s heavy, noisy traffic and associated poor air quality and its effects on our health, are examples of issues which are in urgent need of action if we are to improve our local environment.
