Carriageworks CPO given go-ahead

Yesterday Bristol City Council gave the go-ahead to start compulsory purchase proceedings on the Carriageworks and Westmoreland House on Stokes Croft.

The CPO process is supported by the Community Vision which 2MD facilitated. ┬áSpeaking at the Council’s Cabinet meeting, Cllr Anthony Negus described the vision as “encouraging and stimulating” and containing “not just pie in the sky but very very practical ways forward”. ┬áHe said that the Vision was “a model of consultation and engagement” in Bristol and that he commended everyone who had been involved. “I hope we learn by this process; the City will benefit by all of this”.

Cllr Jon Rogers went on to thank Lori, Simon, Julian and Hugh by name and added that it had been “a tremendous consultation not witnessed before…. The process was one that is inspiring”.

That’s a nice way to start the long weekend!
