BS6 Open Streets Project

Reclaim your street for a day!

Create a more resident friendly road, an ‘open street’ -
to enjoy the space to celebrate, chat, walk, bike, dance or play.

There are many ways to make this happen…whether you wish to only claim a few roadside parking places by laying out artificial grass to drink tea and cake, swap plants or ideas or temporarily open the entire street for the residents to celebrate together, start a ‘playing out’ scheme or just enjoy a vehicle free day.

Sustainable Redland, with a supporting grant from Bristol City Council, is here to assist you, to create your very own ‘open street’. We hope, by promoting these opportunities, just by temporarily allowing people to dominate the road space, it can build positive relationships between neighbours, so strengthen a sense of community spirit and enthusiasm about their locality.

So if you are planning a Street Party, Street Social, Playing Out or a Swap Shop in the Redland / Cotham area
the BS6 Open Streets project is here to support and encourage you, with practical advice and the offer to loan essential equipment like ‘Road Closed’ signs and bunting!
