Following a public consultation Bristol's elected Mayor, George Ferguson, has announced his final budget.
Some streets in Bristol will be traffic free today as part of an experiment that could see cars banned on a regular basis next year.
Bristol Mayor George Ferguson has announced his new cabinet, which now features members from four political parties.
This is how Baldwin Street looks this morning for car-free Sunday.
Police horses are out & about today helping to #MakeSundaySpecial, don,t forget parts of Bristol city centre are traffic free today.
Baldwin Street, King Street and Corn Street are shut to traffic. Various events will be taking place to #MakeSundaysSpecial between 11am and 4pm. All roads will be closed from 9am til 6pm.
Travel and parking
- All city car parks will be accessible although not necessarily by a route that you would normally use due to some closures being in place.
- On street parking will be free as usual on a Sunday although it will be suspended on closed roads.
- Public transport will be largely unaffected except for limited bus detours with Baldwin Street closed. View the Make Sundays Special bus map.

May see if I can afford a skive to wander into the centre for #MakeSundaysSpecial , today. Looks like it will be fun.
#MakesSundaysSpecial has city centre streets opened up to pedestrians but also a 2-mile loop for bikes, runners, skaters, boarders & walkers
#MakeSundaysSpecial is typically-Bristol in character - a bit random, chilled, unorthodox, artsy, green, local, bike-mad - and fun
Starting 11am, #MakeSundaysSpecial is all about opening up a few city centre streets to people, and giving them a rest from cars for the day
In a bid to 'Make Sundays Special', cars will be banned from some streets in Bristol. It's the vision of the city's Mayor George Ferguson who wants to make the area a more pleasant place to be.
