Mike of Bristol City Council’s Transport Planning team made a brief presentation of the 20mph roll out. People were invited to identify any roads they felt should be excluded from the 20mph scheme during the workshops session. Feedback came from people asking for all roads to be made 20mph and others pointing out roads where they thought there was a good reason to keep 30mph. There is another opportunity to give feedback and find out more on Saturday 28th September at St George Library. Details here.
The police were pleased to share news of the sentencing of the man who had attacked a number of women in St George.
Crime figures had again fallen compared to last year but despite this Bristol’s quality of life survey still show people are concerned about their safety outside their neighbourhood after dark. Feedback was asked for about the things that make people feel unsafe and how this should be addressed.
Bristol City Council’s Community Safety Officer, Georgie Bryant, has written a summary of those figures and invites your feedback. The summary and her contact details are here.
You are invited to the next Forum meeting at Summerhill Methodist Church, 5 Air Balloon Rd at 7pm on Tuesday 12th November, 2013.
