Transport in Bristol - Wikipedia

Also within the authority area is the M49 motorway, a shortcut between the M5 in the south and M4 Severn Crossing in the west. There are two principal railway stations in Bristol they are Bristol Parkway and Bristol Temple Meads. There are also scheduled coach links to most major UK cities. The city is also served by its own airport, Bristol Airport (BRS), at Lulsgate, which has seen substantial improvements to its runway, terminal and other facilities.

Public transport[edit] Public transport within the city is still largely bus-based, with Bristol Bus Station being located in Marlborough Street, near the Broadmead shopping area. The north of the city is served by Bristol Parkway railway station. Local road network[edit] Cycling[edit] Motorcycles[edit] Car Clubs[edit] Bristol city-wide sustainable energy study. What proportion of its energy could Bristol generate from its own renewable resources?

Bristol city-wide sustainable energy study

This was one of the questions addressed by a report written for Bristol City Council by CSE and Adrian Smith, an independent planning consultant. The aim of this study was to assist the Council in developing policies which positively encourage lower energy consumption (and hence carbon emissions) from buildings, alongside greater sustainable energy generation. This is something all councils are obliged to do under the new planning-policy requirements handed down from central government, specifically the Department for Communities and Local Government which obliges local authorities to establish the ‘evidence base’ on which their own policies and targets for renewable energy and low-carbon development can be based. Copies of the report can be downloaded here. [NB to keep the file size down, maps on this PDF are rendered in low resolution.

Bristol Avon catchment background. Bristol - CPRE Avonside. We support the provision of attractive, well designed and good quality homes close to shops, public transport, schools, leisure facilities and workplaces, reliable public transport systems, and green spaces in towns and cities, whether communal areas or in private gardens.

Bristol - CPRE Avonside

CPRE champions the concept of urban renaissance because a healthy, pleasant environment in our towns and cities goes hand in hand with a healthy and attractive countryside. We therefore support the provision of attractive, well designed and good quality homes close to shops, public transport, schools, leisure facilities and workplaces. Sustainable cities also depend on reliable public transport systems, while green spaces in towns and cities, whether communal areas or in private gardens, matter just as much to people as green open spaces in the countryside and are vital for the good health and quality of life of residents of urban areas. Bristol now has its own Planning Protocol which was launched in March 2011. Roads. Projects Archives - Environment Systems. This project focused on taking an ‘Ecosystem Approach,’ using existing data and evidence to assess the current provision of ecosystems across the West of England.

Projects Archives - Environment Systems

The ‘Ecosystem Approach’ seeks to understand the services that the natural environment is providing and advocates an integrated approach to the way the land and living resources are managed and enhanced. Environment Systems used its SENCE (Spatial Evidence for Natural Capital Evaluation) tool and expertise to create 14 ecosystem services and opportunities maps.The maps visualise the ecosystem services and networks within the region and can be used at a strategic level, to identify cross-boundary, large-scale ecological networks and right down to a field scale. They not only provide a snapshot of the state of existing natural assets, but also indicate where enhancements are required and inform decision making for future development and its likely impact on the environment.
