MY PLEDGES TO YOU:

DEVELOP ST GEORGE PARK

I will continue to work with community groups to think big and explore all opportunities to secure St George Park as one of the great destination parks of Bristol.

LIVEABLE NEIGHBOURHOODS

I will work with local communities to identify residential areas where traffic can be managed and sustainable living promoted to improve air quality and expand outdoor facilities.

AFFORDABLE /SUSTAINABLE HOUSING

Building on the success of the ZEDpodsHousing Scheme, I will work with residents, the council and business to deliver more affordable and energy efficient housing for families and key workers

YOUTH FACILITIES

I will work with local young people to identify what they need in their community so that there is more for them to do in our area.

CLEANER AIR FOR ST GEORGE

I will work with local campaigners to introduce anti-idling zones outside local schools and ensure city-wide plans do not have a negative impact on our air quality.
