Bristol City Council has confirmed that it is not considering a Residents' Parking Zone around Southmead Hospital, but said that it is looking at other ways to resolve the chaotic parking situation.
Since the new hospital opened, residential roads around Southmead have been packed with cars and some people who live there have struggled with the increased number of vehicles.
It's a year until the region's newest and biggest hospital opens to the public. Work on the £430 million site in Southmead is on schedule.
It will be re-named Southmead Hospital Bristol. Wesley Smith reports on the final stages of the city's biggest building project since Cabot Circus.
