Bristol planning consultation on green space sell-off to start shortly

A public consultation into the future of Bristol's parks and green spaces will begin next year.

Bristol City Council plans to launch a public consultation in 2010, which will inform a decision on which plots of green space are to be sold off under its radical Parks and Green Spaces strategy.

The 12-week consultation will be a chance for the public to share their views on their local parks and green spaces.

Bristol City Council has said that only "low value" green spaces will be sold off to help fund its 20-year parks improvement plan, which has been dogged with controversy.

The council stated: "This information can then be used to define and adapt the plans, identify priority sites and identify works that are needed. No decisions have been made yet, and will not be made until the public's view has been heard. This will be an opportunity to shape the future of Bristol's parks and green spaces."

The start date of the consultation is being finalised at the moment.
