What does the PRSC Campaign set out to achieve?

Community regeneration of Stokes Croft as a cultural quarter and outside art gallery, after decades of city council neglect. “Don’t develop Stokes Croft – Let Stokes Croft develop”.

What has the campaign achieved so far (As set out by Voscur)?:

It has successfully raised the profile of Stokes Croft and got people talking about Stokes Croft positively; improved the appearance of the area through urban art on what would have been blank hoardings; persuaded the City Council to refuse a number of unsuitable planning applications (albeit one has been won on appeal); started discussions with the city council on the future of Turbo Island and other sites; engagement with street drinkers in the area in activities in an inclusive way, accepting they are part of Stokes Croft community; promoted the importance of the heritage of the area as a conservation area. The campaign has also been fun with Stokes Croft fudge, rock, post cards and posters produced.
