Design Bristol community

Nice use of the community site-building platform Ning (it lives!) by a local authority to engage a local community around planning and urban design in Bristol:

Design Bristol is a forum for anyone involved or interested in achieving quality place-making in Bristol.

This could include built environment professionals, neighbourhood groups, students, or people who simply enjoy strolling around the city taking in the atmosphere.

We hope to build a network of people who are passionate about the quality of design in the city, and support them in becoming advocates for the future design of the city.

Whether you’re interested in making your neighbourhood a better place to live, knowing more about the history of your area, or showcasing ideas you may have for the city so other members can comment, we hope this website will prove to be a useful resource.

Design Bristol is an initiative of the City Design Group at Bristol City Council.
