Meet your Redland Labour Councillor candidates for May 2024 here!

Redland ward has an estimated population of 13,000 and covers the area of Gloucester Road, Redland Road, Coldharbour Road and Bishop Road. Oddly, much of Redland ward is known as Bishopston to local inhabitants.

Redland is not a deprived area and, according to the Bristol City Council ward profile, it has an above average quality of life, below average levels of antisocial behaviour, below average dependency on both benefits and difficulty in getting by financially.

Many Redland residents are employed in the public sector commuting to adjacent employers such as Bristol University, BRI + Southmead Hospitals, Bristol City Council and local schools.  Other Redland residents work for major local employers such as Rolls Royce, BAE Systems, Airbus, Abbey Wood MoD and other engineering companies.

Redland ward has 2 Primary Schools, Bishop Road and St Bonaventure’s RC, plus Redland Green Secondary School.

Key challenges facing the local community in Redland are:

  • Traffic – with an average of 1.29 cars per household and a high number of households with 2 cars (29%) there is pressure on parking spaces. Parts of Redland have implemented a Residents Parking Zone (RPZ). Traffic congestion and air quality are major areas of concern.
  • Climate Change – in the latest Quality of Life Survey, 97% of Redland respondents were concerned about Climate Change.
  • Housing – there is a slightly above average number of private rented properties with large student populations in the Manor Park and Redland Road area. The cost of rent is a significant issue.
