The Working Groups of the Society monitor all of Bristol’s planning applications for those that might affect the quality of our city and if necessary they make submissions to the city’s planning committee and initiate lobbying, or even suggest alternative schemes.
They cover all building development, transport and public spaces.
This evening is your opportunity to hear about what they have been dealing with over the last year or so and the important issues for the next 12 months.
Followed by open discussion.
