Homeless occupation of Bathurst Bridge

After careful monitoring and correspondence with Streetwise and St. Mungo’s, the Bristol City Council Park Estates office confirms that the space beneath Bathurst Bridge is presently abandoned.  Secure temporary fencing  has been installed to deter re-occupation.

New permanent palisade fencing has been requisitioned. The outer ground has been cleared of rubbish and sharps and a private clearance company has been commissioned to clear the rest of the site. The image  shows the clearance work well underway on 18th March.
