City Centre Framework Consultation

Closed 14 May 2018

Opened 19 Mar 2018

Results expected 13 Jul 2018

Feedback expected 1 Nov 2018


Bristol City Council has drafted a City Centre Framework document for consultation. The Framework sets out aspirations for how people access and move around the City Centre.  It also covers new development and enhancing public spaces, with a focus on Bristol Shopping Quarter, Old City, Castle Park, North Redcliffe and the gateway into the city from the M32.

In summary, we want to see:

  • A liveable, vibrant, safe and inclusive city centre
  • Improved walking, cycling and public transport
  • An enhanced retail and leisure offer
  • New homes, employment space, enhancement of heritage assets, public realm and green space

Presentation, workshops to discuss and provide feedback on the draft City Centre Framework:

6pm to 7.30pm on 16 April at City Hall. Find out more and register your attendance at

Pop-up exhibitions to raise awareness of the consultation are planned as follows:
