Gloucester Road/Bishopston (Bristol) Our Place project
« on: 29 January 2016, 06:52:23 »
he Bishopston Society promotes high standards of planning and architecture in and around Bishopston (Bristol). In 2014 they did a Gloucester Road/Bishopston Heritage surveyas part of an Our Place project, and there is an update on their progress here. "This is the first but vital step in the process of identifying what is special about the character of the Bishopston area."

"The event was organised by the Bishopston Society and jointly led by Pete Insole, Bristol City Council archaeology officer and creator of the Bristol History interactive website, ‘Know Your Place’ and by Richard Guise, an architect planner with 40 years experience, and founder of the Bristol-based urban design consultancy Context4D, established in 2004.
"A mapping notation sheet designed by Richard was provided for us which gave a checklist of over 45 different symbols (see the article) for denoting features such as important roofline, distinctive line of trees, key/distinctive building and intrusive frontage. Armed with this, we were able to identify and indicate all these noted features on our maps."
