Bristol Central Area Plan consultation

ends on Friday 18 October 2013

The BCAP consultation document says:
“Your comments on all aspects of the draft Plan are welcome. Views on the challenges and opportunities at High Street, Wine Street and Castle Park (Chapter 9 section 3 page 46) will be very important in deciding how best to approach that important part of the city centre.”This is a change from the previous consultation version of the BCAP. New proposals for site KS04 designate an area of Castle Park open space for development and include suggestions to fell street trees in High Street and Wine Street as part of the proposal to narrow those streets. An additional site has also been added to the proposed site allocations – KS05 – the central ambulance station site, south east of Castle Park.Specific Questions are asked on pages 49/50: 

  • To bring forward a well-designed and viable scheme should the area proposed for development fall within the boundary indicated on the aerial photograph below?
  • Are there other options which should be considered?
  • To enable the narrowing of High Street and Wine Street closer to their historic proportions should any existing street trees be removed and replaced elsewhere?
  • Are there other options which should be considered?
