1/ After attending tonight’s Extraordinary Full Council meeting on #BristolArena, and having followed the subject closely for quite some time, I’d like to share my thoughts. I intend this to be my last tweet/thread on the arena – at least for the foreseeable.
2/ First, having listened to the Mayor and others, I remain of the view that an arena at Arena Island is the best location. I’m pleased this was reflected in the unanimous results of the vote (50 to 0), which included the mayor and cllrs from all parties!
3/ It’s clear the majority of Bristolians support #BristolArena ; from the ram-packed chamber (I happily sat in an overflow room), the ratio of submissions, the various (admittedly unscientific) polls by the press & public, and – ultimately - tonight’s unanimous vote.
