Good news on Green Spaces

23 11 2011

At last night’s greenspaces debate Labour Bristol managed to get the Lib Dems to remove their 3 year opposition to all green spaces in the original list going to neighbourhood partnerships for discussion and neighbourhood committees for a formal vote. Happily the Greens also relented in their leader’s committment to paragraph 18 of this document which would have led to sale of 38 sites without further consultation.

I’m delighted that Labour Bristol stopped the Lib Dem steamroller. In my opinion it’s rarely that Garry Hopkins ever thinks twice. I’m also delighted the Green Party recovered a little sanity in the face of all other parties affording higher priority to green spaces than them and I’m delighted that Labour Bristol has delivered a manifesto commitment even when we are in opposition.
