3 Responses to Environment: Street Scene/Public places

  1. Regarding 1.2.4 Street Tree Planting (and maintenance). The NP agreed a strategy in 2011 which looked to increase overall canopy cover of the area to 18% for public health and other reasons. It does need actions and sources of funds and volunteers and council officer support and activity. We will compile a list for your March NP Meeting.

    You haven’t got pavement parking under 1.2.2. Tackle pavement obstructions.
    Bishopston is plagued by it.

    • ab says:

      Pavement parking has been included under Traffic and Travel 2.3.2.5 – so it has not also been put under Environment:street scene to avoid duplication- the NP is very aware of this issue and has identified a plan of action through the street scene group. I hope this answers this concern.
