Village centre fights back
Westbury-on-Trym is a lovely, leafy part of Bristol but lately, local difficulties are having an impact on the lives of residents.
The amount of businesses closing in the village, retail sites left empty for long periods, the lack of a proper chemist since Lloyds shut, and problems with parking have become the lament of the locals. And to top it all, the temporary closure of the Post Office in August heightened concerns that this major service would disappear too, along with the footfall it brings to the area.
To address these problems, and attract shoppers back into the village with a mix of large stores and independent shops, residents and traders have launched a regeneration scheme.
The first of many meetings was held at the beginning of September and following great interest, there are more to come.
