Bristol Green Capital – across SevernNet

 

The SevernNet businesses and communities … from Portbury Dock, Avonmouth and Severnside … right up to Western Approach Industrial Park … have a hidden treasure of inspiring stories and practices.

Bristol 2015 is our catalyst to celebrate what has, and continues to be, achieved across the area. We’ll be sharing our stories, good practices, events and news throughout the year.

If you have something you’d like to contribute please email kate.royston@severnnet.org or call 07969-569-444.

 

SevernNet is one of 700+ organisations who have made a Bristol Green Capital Partnership pledge to help Bristol become “a low carbon city with a high quality of life for all”. Find out more here.

 

SevernNet is also Go…ing Green with our own Action Plan! Find out more here.

 Transport

Improving the sustainability of our transport across the area is challenging. There are limited opportunities to travel by public transport and the cycle and walking infrastructure is generally poor. High levels of HGV traffic also contribute to an intimidating environment.

Working together we’ve been able to identify a number of areas where improvements can be made. We look forward to some investment, beginning in March, courtesy of the Local Sustainable Transport Fund. The SevernNet Sustainable Transport Forum plays an important role in bringing stakeholders together to effect positive change.
