South Street Playing Field PSPO Consultation

Monday 20 January, 2020

Bristol City Council have today launched a public consultation on the proposal to introduce a Public Space Protection Order (PSPO) on South Street Playing field.

The school, as part of the Gatehouse Green Learning Trust, has owned and managed the field since 2018.  We want to continue to allow the wider community to use this wonderful green space outside of school hours but need it to be safe and clean for our children.

We have worked alongside Bristol City Council who are now consulting on the proposed PSPO which will exclude dogs from our playing field.

We are proud and privileged to be one of the few primary schools in this area with a playing field, however as staff, parents and governors know, the school is currently unable to use the field as much as we would like, as it requires a full sweep of the field before use.   Even if dog owners clear up after their pet there is a risk of urine and residue of faeces which can present a serious risk to young children. 

If you would like to have your say on the future of the field please complete the survey.  Closing date 1st March 2020.
