More delays to Bristol arena?

Mayor Marvin Rees has announced the planned opening date for Bristol’s arena has been delayed until 2019. In his ‘state of the city’ speech on 6th October 2016 Mayor Rees said he intended to deliver the arena by 2019, but warned against spiralling costs.

The arena development has major implications for Totterdown in terms of the redevelopment of the surrounding area, and transport issues including a possible residents’ parking scheme. However, no further information seems to be available at this time.

TRESA has sent an email asking for clarification to Cllr Helen Holland, Cabinet Member for Place (helen.holland@bristol.gov.uk) and to our local councillors Jon Wellington (cllr.jon.wellington@bristol.gov.uk) and Lucy Whittle (cllr.lucy.whittle@bristol.gov.uk)
