Adblock Bristol is working towards a city that celebrates its creativity and independence, where communities have a say in what they see in the city’s streets and other public spaces. Adblock Bristol is opposed to billboards and other corporate outdoor advertising, preferring a visual environment which reflects the unique identity of our city, the values of local communities and the local economy.
Adblock Bristol formed in April 2017 out of a desire to create a city free from the pressures of corporate outdoor advertising. We see Bristol as a progressive forward-thinking city and would like it to follow the example of Sau Paulo in Brazil and Grenoble in France to end outdoor advertising.
- We support residents in opposing planning applications for new advertising sites.
- We hold conversations across the city about the harmful impacts of corporate advertising and positive alternatives for those spaces. See our resources and events pages.
- We engage in a constructive dialogue with Bristol City Council about the advertising sites it controls and future planning policy.
