Bedminster chosen for "Portas Pilot"

Bedminster has been chosen to become a pilot area as part of Mary Portas’s High Street Review.  Only 12 areas across the country were successful in this first round of the competition which aims to regenerate Britain’s high streets. 


Dawn commented; "I would like to congratulate everyone in the ‘Bedminster Town Team’ who submitted the bid and will now receive £100,000 from the Government as well as tailored support for their plans to rejuvenate Bedminster’s retail areas."


There are many planned improvements, including the following: tackling empty shops and anti-social behaviour in the eastern end of North Street and East Street, a review of car parking and shared space, a route of 25 pieces of locally made art and street performances from local theatre company, Show of Strength. 

Designed and built by Tangent Snowball. Hosted by Rackspace, 2 Longwalk Road, Stockley Park, Uxbridge, UB11 1BA.
Promoted by and on behalf of the Labour Party at One Brewer's Green, London SW1H 0RH.
