Quiet Areas Pilot Study

Bristol City Council are working with DEFRA to identify the quiet areas in the city. We already have some information on this from the citizenscape project, and that's partly why we have been asked to contribute. The data from bristolstreets will be used alongside other GIS data and qualitative information on open space quality to identify those places in the city where "quietness" is an important characteristic of the area. We will consult with internal and external stakeholders and then submit a list of potential quiet areas to DEFRA. An important part of the project is to help to shape guidance on the role of local authorities in the identification and management of quiet areas.
