They've gone and removed Bristol's famous Free Parking Space.
In what appears to be a concerted attack on motorists, fly-parkers, and anyone concerned with quality in the 'Public Realm', Bristol City Council have unilaterally blocked access to this well-known Bristol attraction. This is pedestrianisation by stealth.
What was an apparently well-designed and considered contribution to our inner-city highway infrastructure is now little more than a fly tipping opportunity. Or an exclusive 4x4 parking bay.
Or are the cycling-city mob about to fill it with bike stands?
