Have your say on air pollution and traffic issues

ClairPoster advertising the City event in Bradley Stoke.

Local residents are invited to join a special event in Bradley Stoke to find out more about air pollution and to have a say in deciding how Bristol and the region should deal with transport and future growth.

Are electric cars the answer? What will improve the traffic flow? How might alternatives work? What about better trains or even trams…? A UWE Bristol project wants to hear from residents.

This meeting is part of a major European project ‘Citizen-led air pollution reduction in cities’ (ClairCity) in which residents get to influence the long-term future of their region. They want to discuss how changes will affect residents’ lives now, but also look towards the future and find out what would make an impact and improve peoples’ lives.

The Bradley Stoke event is free and open to everyone. It takes place at the Jubilee Centre, Savages Wood Road from 7pm to 8.45pm on Tuesday 19th September.

On behalf of ClairCity, Dr Corra Boushel from UWE Bristol said:

“This project is all about listening to people, understanding the needs of different communities across Bristol and South Gloucestershire, and planning for a better future for everyone. During the event there will be an opportunity to learn more about the links between air pollution, transport and our health, and give your views on the long-term vision for Bradley Stoke and the whole region. You can help shape the agenda for your neighbourhood and the region.”

The project includes UWE Bristol and Bristol City Council as partners. To find out more about the project, visit www.claircity.eu/bristol or search for ClairCity on Facebook.
