Shop putting counters and tables outside blocking pavement

Reported via desktop in the Obstruction category anonymously at 17:38, Sat 22 May 2021

Sent to Bristol City Council less than a minute later

Wine bar at 286 Gloucester Road has a table outside with presently four people standing around it leaving very little room for people to pass. There is also a road sign there and they've put a sandwich board there blocking people walking between the two posts. Last Saturday they put a counter outside with a barrier around it and were selling seafood on the street, completely blocking the pavement and forcing people to walk in the cycle lane to get by. Also wheelchair users had to wait for people to move out of the way. The cycle lane is frequently used by electric scooter riders and there is going to be a serious accident if people have to walk in the road. This is also a major bus route. Surely the council have not granted a pavement licence for this business as they do not comply with any of the safety requirements. Would you kindly look into this before someone gets seriously injured or killed by a scooter or a bus. Thanks

  • Business still blocking the pavement with a table, chairs and A-board. Maybe the council are waiting for someone to get seriously injured or killed before they investigate. There have been accidents on this exact spot before. If anyone does get hurt the council have to accept full responsibility as they are doing nothing to help alleviate the possibility of injury or death.

  • Oyster bar set up outside again today blocking the pavement. Maybe the council are waiting for someone to get hurt before they do anything.
