Welcome to the Pigeonhouse Stream Blog

This blog is the home of the campaign to preserve Hartcliffe’s Pigeonhouse Stream.

The Liberal Democrats in the Bristol City Council want to sell off two plots of public land along the Pigeonhouse Stream (see The Threatened Land). This is part of a much wider sell-off of open spaces across Bristol (see Other Spaces Under Threat). For a quick account of what is going on, you may want to see this video, which has been published on YouTube.

It is vitally important for local residents, and people across Bristol to speak up and explain why they think this is a bad idea. This website is designed to give people a chance to do just that. To state your views on the proposed sale, please go to the Pigeonhouse Views page.

To read more about the campaign, please go to the Campaign page. To keep up-to-date with the latest developments, please go to the News and Developments page.

Last but not least, if you want to find out more about the Pigeonhouse Stream itself, you may wish to read this piece, or go to this report on the biodiversity of the area. Oh, and don’t forget the Pigeonhouse Views page!

The Threatened Land

The following are the two plots of land that the Liberal Democrats in the Bristol City Council want to sell off.

The first plot is located close to Hareclive Road. Here is a photograph of the site:

The second site is further down the stream, between Blackthorn Road and Whitchurch Lane. Here a photo of the second site:

The proposed sell-off is no idle threat—the Bristol City Council has already sold another plot of land along the stream, just below the Dundry Slopes:

Please let the Bristol City Council know why this is not so-called ‘low value’ land, and why it is not acceptable to sell it off. Do so by sending a statement asap to the Bristol City Council’s Democratic Services, and by publishing a comment in this website!
