RPS in Southville and Bedminster East

Changes to RPS in Southville and Bedminster East

 This webpage details the changes as at 26/7/2017 to the RPS zones in Bedminster East and Southville. These are prior to any formal consultation, and some details are still being ironed out.

If you have any comments, especially 'hold up your hands in horror' comments, please get in touch:

Extension of zone across North St into Ashton

This will not take place. The council have refused to take on board our request for an extension of the zone to ea limited number of streets.

They have said a new zone will be considered but only if it can be shown that it has widespread support. Given we do not know what this means in practice, you have to reckon any such new zones are some years away.

 Hours and days of operation

There is likely to be an increase in hours and days of operation. To help us better understand the demand for this, please complete the following (simple) survey:
