A city-wide campaign has started to get Bristol City Council to work with local people to create ‘Liveable Neighbourhoods’ across Bristol, and the campaign needs you!

Liveable Neighbourhoods are residential neighbourhoods that contain traffic filters such as bollards or planters. The filters stop cars, vans and lorries from the bordering main roads using the streets as rat-runs.

Residents and local businesses still have full access and can get deliveries. Traffic reduces and brings all sorts of benefits: clean air, easier social distancing, safer streets, more trade and footfall to the local high street – even higher life expectancy.

If you want your neighbourhood to be for local people, not through-traffic, please sign the petition and join the conversation on your local Liveable Neighbourhoods Facebook group. There’s one in every part of the city and you can find yours via the Liveable Neighbourhoods for Bristol website.

And if you would like to be a local champion for Liveable Neighbourhoods or to join the campaign working group, please get in touch via
