Bristol has distinctive features that make it special to us: for instance, its waterways, harbour, green spaces, hills, position, maritime history, industrial history, and the buildings, streets, spaces, and architectural history. We wish Bristol to live up to its status as a regional capital, reflected in its cityscape, cultural activities and economic life, to be a place its citizens are proud of, and a place that people want to visit, especially through its buildings, facilities and public spaces.

Bus Rapid Transit Network - South Bristol Link Inquiry
2012 will be a summer of transport inquiries and it's our chance to take part in the decision process.
- BRT2 Aston Vale to Temple Meads (AVTM) is currently in Review for 6 weeks - week 3 starts on Tuesday 12th June. Schedule for the inquiry can be seen here.
The Society are set to give their evidence in the week of 12/13/14/15 June. Anyone can attend the Public Inquire: it's in Armada House, Telephone Ave (between Baldwin St and Marsh St ) Tues, Wed, Thurs: 10.00am to 1.00pm, 2.00pm to 5.00pm, Friday: 9.30pm to 1.00pm
Apart from it being a very interesting process, it would be encouraging for the Soc and other objectors to have some moral support.
- BRT3 North Fringe to Hengrove Package, is out for review here. Note that the Society will only respond to Zone 5, the Central Bristol proposals. We expect that local interest groups will take up the challenge for other areas. The schedule for any inquiry has yet to be decided.
- South Bristol Link (SBL), which is part of the Rapid Transit network, is currently in public consultation. The last exhibition is on the 12th June at Bristol International Bowls Club, 198 South Liberty Lane, Bedminster BS3 2TY 2pm-7pm.
