Love Saves The Day: Bristol Council Wants New Home For Festival - Bristol24-7

BCC has said it supports the festival, as it boosts visitor numbers and trade in the city centre. When questioned on the figures, the spokesman provided figures supplied by festival organisers adding the council received 10,000 for the licence to host the event. Among the figures LSTD provided were: 287,000 of the 330,000 production budget is spend on local contractors and staff; 35,000 to local businesses through marketing and promotion; Local traders at the event generate around 140,000 in turnover; After-parties also generate about 95,000 for local venues in revenue; LSTD organisers said: Ultimately it is fair to say that the festival generates over 550,000 directly for the local economy plus the money spent in the city outside of the event itself by people travelling to the city. Yesterday, local councillor Mark Wright joined in with the criticism of the festival organisers, saying there were better places to hold such events. He also pointed out that Queen Square is also in need of repairs from its own festival footfall, after the end of Eat Drink Bristol Fashion, making two out of the city centres three open spaces damaged at the same time. Cllr Alex Woodman and I have complained about the excessive fencing off, and excessive number of days of closure of Castle Park for this, for the last two years, he said.

Transfer News: Blackpool And Bristol City Keen On Fleetwood's Conor Mclaughlin | Bristol City Football Club News, Fixtures, Results, Gossip | Football365

A regular presence on the right of Fleetwood's back four, McLaughlin tasted play-off final joy as Burton Albion were edged out at Wembley. His efforts in securing a step up to the third tier were then rewarded by Northern Ireland coach Michael O'Neill with a second senior cap in Friday's 1-0 defeat to Uruguay. Fleetwood are understandably keen to ensure that McLaughlin goes on to receive further recognition while still on their books, but must agree fresh terms if he is to do so. McLaughlin's current contract has come to an end, meaning he is about to drop into the free agent pool and open the door to offers from elsewhere. Bristol City are contemplating an approach as they attempt to piece together a promotion-winning side, while Blackpool are looking for additions to help them cement their standing in the Championship.

Bristol Local Elections 2014: Labour And Greens Gain At Lib Dems' Expense - Bristol24-7

Their push was large enough though to force previous Lord Mayor and Lib Dem councillor Peter Main into third place in Brislington West, with UKIP candidate Christopher Robinson just 139 votes short of Labour winner Rhian Greaves. Cllr Main said as he accepted his defeat: Bristol is a wonderful, cosmopolitan city but tonight we have stepped back from that and I am very regretful. I am sorry for Bristol for what they will have to live with in future. Click a ward to see who won last night Turn-out for the local elections was higher than expected, with an average of 36.57% across the city. But there was frustration at the long delay before counting and the declarations took place. The first results were not announced until 3.25am, with Bristol City Council officials blaming the large number of late postal votes and technical issues. Zillah Morris, returning officer for the election, said: We experienced some delays at tonights local election count, mostly due to a higher than expected number of postal votes, including those which missed the postal deadline and were hand delivered to polling stations instead. The added security measures to verify postal votes did set us back, along with a couple of technical issues. Wed like to thank candidates, agents, their guests and all the staff who showed a lot of patience and stayed up late to see it through.

Bristol City - City Interested In Former Blades Midfielder?

Tweet The Sheffield Star has Bristol City linked with a move for midfielder Elliott Whitehouse after the player was told he no longer has a future at Bramall Lane. Last season the 20 year old spent time at York City and Alfreton Town on loan periods as he could not keep down a regular place in the Blade's side. After the player came to the end of his loan at York, the club looked into bringing him back for the remainder of the season and although that move never happened, it's thought that they may be interested in making a move for him now that he is a free agent. Carlisle and Rochdale are also monitoring the situation. Use your social login to comment on front page articles. Login using you Facebook, Twitter, Google or LinkedIn accounts and have your say!

Road Closure Plan To Make Bristol To Bath Cycle Path Safer - Bristol24-7

Ahead is Trinity Street, which the council is proposing to close to motor traffic Bristol City Council (BCC) is proposing to close a road in Old Market to make access to and from the Bristol to Bath Cycle Path safer for the thousands of cyclists and pedestrians which use it each day. The proposal, out for consultation at present, would see Trinity Street closed to all vehicles where it joins St Philips Road, and where the cycle path starts. St Philips Road would then have two dedicated cycle lanes added, one on each side, to improve the environment for pedestrians and cyclists. Up to 5,000 pedestrians and cyclists use the railway path each, making it one of the busiest off-road cycling and walking routes in the country. A presentation of the plan was given to the Easton and Lawrence Hill Neighbourhood Forum last week, but there have already been criticisms of the plan. Local residents fear Waterloo Street, which runs parallel to St Philips Road, could become a rat run for drivers attempting to avoid traffic and lights along West Street towards the city centre. Cycling campaigners have also expressed some disappointment with the scheme, with one describing the plan to close off one street to traffic while making cyclists give way to irregular traffic as utterly bizarre. But with the large numbers of railway path users, the plan could develop into one campaigners can use to highlight BCCs inability to bite the bullet and make cycling the priority. The plans come as government moves which will see drivers banned from overtaking cyclists on designated cycle streets could be introduced in cities throughout the UK$ including Bristol in a bid to reduce the number of road deaths.
