Public spaces for the Bristol Civic Society encompass not just our much loved 'green' spaces like Queen Square or College Green but all areas that encourage pedestrian activity such as the Centre, Millennium Square and our pavements. The public spaces group engages with the Council to influence the quality and use of public spaces.
Inspiration for the group comes from Henry Shaftoe and his notes can read by click here.
