Wharf plans are a brilliant idea
WHAT good news it was to read how one of the last remaining sections of the Harbourside, the historic Redcliffe Wharf where the Matthew was built, could be about to undergo a multi-million makeover by London-based company.
It specialises in regeneration schemes, working alongside government agencies, local authorities and charities (The Post June 28).
Since the Bristol City Council's Harbourside Regeneration Programme began way back in 1992 with the help of the National Lottery, the entire area has become a great place to visit.
With the ss Great Britain and Matthew there to welcome the many thousands of tourists, the docks are an impressive addition to a vibrant, cosmopolitan city.

And with big plans for historic Redcliffe Wharf for homes, two large restaurants and a mix of small cafes, shop and workshop office buildings as well as the creation of public open spaces and the re-opening of pedestrian links to the forgotten Quaker burial ground which is hidden away on the corner of the busy St Mary Redcliffe roundabout, our lovely Bristol Harbourside will continue to thrive.
We can all proudly say our lovely docks are shipshape and Bristol fashion.
The city should be proud in having docks right at its heart with its spectacular array of ships.
