Our next event is:
Community Mapping and Streetscape Improvements, Saturday 27th September
Horfield Quaker Meeting House, Gloucester Road
10 am to 1 pm (tea, coffee and cake provided).
This will be an opportunity to work with planning and design expert, Richard Guise who will help us devise and use symbols to map walkability in our neighbourhood. Mapping walkability is a key part of our project, and we are really lucky to have Richard to help us since he has had a lot of success with his ‘our place’ community mapping work for building conservation purposes. We will have a workshop session and then go out mapping on the streets !
Please forward details to all your contacts.
We have held meetings and focus groups with our map and survey with toddler groups, Bishopston WI, an elderly people’s home, a street stall on Gloucester Road, and at a school fare.
Our survey is still live and due to run until the end of December, please fill it in and send out:
Route decision making
We will be meeting at Liz’s house at 6 pm on Wednesday 1st October to decide on which routes to include in our map. We will be using our own pilot work and information gathered from the public. (Liz had an expedition on a mobility scooter and ended up having to call the police twice because she was blocked in by parked cars.) If you can’t make this meeting and have views you would like to communicate, please don’t hesitate to contact me and I will try and meet you before then.
If you can record walkability please let us know and we will give you the tools. This will be essential work once we have identified our key routes.
We will start to consider map design at our next steering group meeting on Tuesday 21st October, at Horfield Lodge Coffee House at 10.15 am.
