Church Road forms both a local high street and a busy arterial running into Bristol city-centre. Our Director, Fin McNab worked with the local Town Team to draft a funding bid to work with the wider community to co-develop proposals for local environmental improvements.
He supported a number of community workshops and an on-street 'parklet' event to develop community-led proposals for change.
This process of engagement identified a lack of greenery and few places to sit along the street which made it a place that people didn't choose to spend time in.
The initiative has led to the installation of a dozen new street trees and a number of resting places along the street.
The work has led on to proposals for a large mural to celebrate the diversity of the street.
