We Asked, You Said, We Did

Here are some of the issues we have consulted on and their outcomes. See all outcomes

We Asked

Bristol’s inclusive and sustainable economic growth strategy is focused on productivity-driven growth, together with the fair distribution of economic contributions and benefits. It also takes as a guiding principle that economic growth should not come at the expense of environmental and health standards. Accordingly, this strategy concerns itself with economic, social and environmental outcomes.
 
This Action Plan has been co-produced with a wide range of agencies and organisations across the city, but it will still benefit from further consultation to garner greater engagement and agreement. The aim is for the action plan to provide the framework for delivering the Strategy.

This Action Plan should serve as the starting point for developing and influencing a wide range of projects across Bristol City Council, the City Office and key delivery partners to guide a more focused and collaborative approach to inclusive and sustainable economic growth.

We consulted on the themes, priorities, and actions in this Action Plan.

You Said

We received 22 responses to the Inclusive and Sustainable Economic Growth Action Plan consultation.

We asked for comments on the proposed actions to deliver the Inclusive & Sustainable Economic Growth Strategy. You told us that many of the proposed actions were low priority. Due to this, we will focus on the actions identified as higher priority.

We asked for your views on the ways we will measure successful delivery. You told us that many of the metrics were unnecessary. Due to this, we have produced a more concise sets of metrics and will use them to report progress each year.

We Did

As a result of the online consultation and discussions with key stakeholders across the city, the action plan and associated metrics have been rationalised. There are now a set of 83 actions, across three timescales – short (to 2020), medium (to 2028) and long (to 2040) – and seven key metrics that will be used to report on the effectiveness of the action plan in delivering the strategic objectives. A full report on the consultation, together with the revised action plan and metrics, will be presented to Cabinet this summer.

We Asked

The proposals for an informal crossing point were included in the planning application documents. In terms of the consultations carried out on the original consent there was a site and press notice and 63 neighbours consulted; all the plans were available to view online.

There was an informal consultation from 7 December 2018 to 11 January 2019.

You can read further details in the Frequently Asked Questions and Way Forward document.

In addition to the informal consultation, we carried out a technical study and pedestrian count.

You Said

There were 67 separate comments on the proposals with 61 objections, 5 in favour and 1 neutral.

We Did

Bearing in mind the level of objection in mind, it is proposed that the design is revisited. The new proposals will be submitted as a variation to the original condition on the planning application and officers will ensure that affected frontagers are consulted as part of this process.

You can read further details in the Frequently Asked Questions and Way Forward document.

We Asked

The proposals for waiting restrictions (double yellow lines etc.) at junctions, resident driveways and school access points to prevent obstructive parking and to provide informal crossing places for pedestrians were consulted on between 7 December 2018 and 4 January 2019.

You Said

Bristol City Council received overwhelming support for the scheme improvements and there have been a number of additional requests for double yellow lines across driveways.

We Did

We have now drawn up a waiting restriction scheme which in order to install, will need to go through a Statutory Consultation process for the Traffic Regulation Order required.  This is a sometimes lengthy legal process which will involve placing a Notice of Intent in the local press and posting Notices on site to advertise the proposals.  Depending on the nature and level of objections and support for the scheme, the Director: Management of Place, Bristol City Council will decide if it is appropriate to pursue the scheme.  The proposed highway works will be progressed separately and should be installed by the end of the year.
