Oppose Advertising in Bristol’s Parks!

Bristol City Council are currently consulting on proposals to introduce commercial advertising to our parks and green spaces.

We agree with the Council when they say that our parks are good for our physical and emotional wellbeing; and we acknowledge that the council is under financial pressure to reduce what it spends on these spaces.  However, Adblock Bristol feels that introducing advertising would undermine the emotional, psychological and health benefits that these space bring – especially in areas where children play.

There is a consultation to let the council know what we think of the various possible options to save money on parks. Our responses to the consultation could stop this proposal going ahead. It takes about 15 minutes to complete and can be found here:
