Update February 2013: Following the public responses to the consultation, the Council has now proposed a trial, which largely follows the Living Heart for Bristol’s alternative proposals (see below). Read the story in The Post.
Background: In 2012 the Council consulted on proposals for some minor changes to the Old City streets. The Living Heart for Bristol proposed a more radical alternative, involving an extension to the pedestrianised area of Corn Street. This found favour with the public in a consultation, and with most of the Old City Traders when it was first presented to them (although more recently, a couple have begun to voice some opposition).
