Keep Castle Park Green...

Received the details below from a friend and am passing them on:

Keep Castle Park Green. Come to the public inquiry

Bristol City Council and the developers Deeley Freed are still intent on building on our green space. In a bid to stop this, Castle Park User Group submitted an application to the council to register Castle Park as a Town Green. If successful, the green space will be permanently protected from development. The council and the developers constitute the main objectors to the proposal and the issue is going to a public inquiry.

Support the move to protect our green space for all time.

The public inquiry begins on 1st December 10.00 a.m. at the Old Council House, Corn Street, Bristol.

Assemble 9.15am outside the Old Council House bring banners and placards.

The inquiry is due to run for one week, with two evening sessions.

The times are 10.00am to 5.00pm each day, plus Monday & Wednesday 6.00pm to 8.00pm.

There is more information on the internet at:-


  1. This Council is insane and unjust! We need to get far more radical and make it clear how much we value our urban green space. What BCC should be doing is bulldozing the office blocks at the city end (which have been empty for years) and CREATING MORE green space.

  2. Yes I strongly sympathise with what you say Holly. We should be greening up the city. However, I think we have our work cut out just to conserve what we currently have!!


Genuine, open, reasonable debate is most welcome. Comments that meet this test will always be published.
