Wedlock’s for Flats? Just Say No

Wedlock’s for Flats? Just Say No

Bristol City Supporters Trust and our partners in the community have been working hard in recent weeks on a campaign to stop the Wedlock’s pub being demolished and replaced with a block of flats.

One of the more exciting aspects of this work has been to discuss potential uses for the building should our campaign be successful. Thoughts and ideas to date include:

• The venue could be set up as an attractive community pub/café/restaurant with strong links to footballing and other traditions of the local area
• If renovated, the venue could face in two directions, thereby also attracting park users, principally as a café/rest area
• If established as an attractive pub/café/restaurant, the venue would provide passive surveillance, thereby reducing anti-social behaviour in the park
• The venue could secure the long-term future of the toilet block in the park (potentially in doubt) by placing it under the owner’s management (see above)
• The venue could house Bristol City memorabilia and/or provide a headquarters for City supporters and other community groups
• The venue could provide a much-needed space for members of the community in which to work and play

We would be very interested to hear from anyone who may have ideas about funding any such project.

The initial three-week consultation period for the planning application ends on Monday 2nd April. We will submit our petition on this date. In the meantime, please voice your opposition to the developer’s plan by writing to: S&E Area Planning Team, Brunel House, St. George’s Road, Bristol, BS1 5HY. We cannot stress enough how important your letters could be.

For further details about our campaign, please explore this website, call us on 0117 370 6146, or write to James Nicholls either by email,
james@bristolcityst.org.uk, or c/o the Ashton Gate Stadium address.
