Labour’s priorities for Bedminster


Labour’s councillor candidates for Bedminster, Mark Bradshaw and Celia Phipps, are writing to local residents about their priorities for the ward.

“As local residents, we are committed to seeing a better Bedminster,” they say. “Bedminster is a great place and we want to see it thrive and improve.” To do that, Celia and Mark are focusing on five key areas:

  • Tackling the housing crisis: getting more affordable homes built and better protection and support for people renting their homes.
  • Boosting public transport in our area: bring back the 25 bus, make the 24 more reliable, invest in access and more stopping trains at Parson Street, more seats on the 75 & 76 buses, direct link to Temple Meads.
  • Let’s Clean Bedminster: targeted action on fly-tipping and litter, working with residents, businesses and Bristol Waste. This work has started and Mark and Celia want it to continue.
  • Parks and Green spaces: as Labour councillors Mark and Celia have worked with residents to get South St, Luckwell and Gores Marsh Parks improved and this continues. Now they want to see Ashton Vale get a new play area.
  • Engagement and involvement: combating social isolation, backing community transport, making sure people have a say over local decisions such as RPZ which have been imposed on Greater Bedminster by the Mayor.

Mark and Celia are standing in the city-wide local elections on May 5. You can contact Mark Bradshaw at and Celia Phipps at
