Dear Bristol City Council,

St james barton roundabout (aka the Bearpit) has had some public statements in court and via press release that suggest the development of the space is imminent.

Please could you provide details of what Bristol City Council has done to market the space so far, what funding and grants are expected to be used and if/when potential developers have been contacted.

If a partnership is planned please give dates of public tender if otherwise a third party engagement please name the developer who will 'buy' the land from BCC.

Yours faithfully,

Richard Carey
