Healthy natural environment

Bristol will have an abundance of wildlife, all people will benefit from healthy, natural environment.

To show progress against this priority outcome, two indicators are presented below, the percentage of Bristol residents visiting a park or an open space at least once a week, and the percentage of monitoring sites that meet the annual air quality target for nitrogen dioxide – a measure of how healthy the air in our city is. These indicators help to show progress against our goal of ensuring everyone in Bristol benefits from a healthy, natural environment.
