What makes Western Harbour special? 11th Aug 2021

Following the debacle of the consultation on the proposed road schemes (held in late 2019 and early 2020) the City Council has now appointed consultants to develop a vision to guide the future of Western Harbour. We understand that there will be an extensive consultation programme in the next few weeks – programme yet to be made public.

The Civic Society will naturally wish to contribute to this new exercise. But what does the Society wish to see happen in Western Harbour? We’ve coined ‘what makes Western Harbour special?’ as a guide.

  • What do we wish to see retained, preserved, protected?
  • What do we see as the opportunities?
  • And, of course, what don’t we want to see happen?

We’re holding an Open Meeting on Wednesday 11th August (on zoom) starting at 7.00 pm

No big presentations from us but an opportunity for you to contribute and to help form the Civic Society’s approach to the Western Harbour consultation. We’ve teamed up with UWE and will have two students working with us – Sarah and Alex. Our short term objective is to produce a ‘position statement’ which will outline our aspirations.

Please get in touch if you wish to attend on 11th August and we’ll send a zoom invitation just beforehand

If you can’t make the meeting please get in touch and we’ll make sure your views are taken onboard and that you are kept informed of progress with this important initiative.
