First hour: news review: From October 2017: Marvin Rees plans to knock down Cumberland Basin and rename it ‘Western Harbour’ - From private 'Place Dynamix' cover website: The Cumberland Basin sits at the fork between the River Avon and Bristol Floating Harbour. The western peninsula of Spike Island sits within walking distance of Bristol’s affluent neighbourhoods of Clifton and Hotwells, home to Georgian houses, universities and high -quality lifestyle retail offerings. The Cumberland Basin stakeholders met the mayor's helpers in June and were told everything is early days (in effect go back to sleep). Bristol Against Tower Blocks Facebook page: Today someone found this: Odldy enough this has not been publicly revealed and was not mentioned by City Design in their 9th April presentation during the Local Plan consultation period. The person who found this "lead consultants website" comments as follows - What stands out is: • The sheer density of the proposed building on Spike Island. • The intention to build as high as the current Bond Warehouses (!) • The large edifice at the tip of Spike Island. No doubt giving a premium view of the Suspension Bridge. The view from the Bridge might not be quite as premium in future. I do hope it is proposed to be a public building, and just not expensive flats or offices. • The smaller height of the proposed Hotwells scheme. Albeit what precisely is planned is unclear. • The restoration of Avon Crescent as a through-route. • Some really ugly architecture, although it might just be indicative of what could be built there (if we make as little effort as we have with the rest of the Harbourside). • The lack of a replacement bridge (!!) - source on the Place Dynamics pages – Mayor Marvin Rees plans to get rid of swing bridge and put tunnel in; Bristol set to smash Marvin Rees' target of 2000 new homes a year target; Bristol congestion charge? - Bristol buses, Metrobus;  Airbus Filton takes on swathes of apprentices amid growing fears of Brexit 'carnage'  - George White gifted Filton to Bristol;  Fracking protesters' 'absurdly harsh' jail sentences spark calls for judicial review backed by hundreds of scientists;  Welsh leaders urged to halt 'nuclear mud' dumping off Cardiff - 'Radioactive mud' Sediment from Hinkley Point C construction site: Among those backing the objectors is the Emeritus Prof Keith Barnham, a distinguished research fellow in the physics department at Imperial College London, who argues it is possible that large amounts of uranium and dangerous levels of plutonium could have reached the mud when cooling water from the decommissioned Hinkley Point A was discharged. 2018 Tory Party Conference: speech by Esther McVey, Work & Pensions Secretary – jobs and great new benefit system; Theresa May’s speech – an end to austerity? – Brexit - John Pilger’s view of the crooked 2008 bankers who caused austerity; Boris Johnson’s speech to party conference – Chequers Brexit deal no-good, power of EU.
